Not to be over- looked in the functional effectiveness of the hand is the important contribution made by the extensive vascular network in supporting its metabolic requirements. As the upper limb is also used for carrying loads and supporting the body, the question arises as to how these forces are transmitted to the axial skeleton. The usual means is by tension developed in the muscles and ligaments crossing the various joints. In addition, because the upper limb itself is heavy, every movement that it makes has to be accompanied by postural contractions of the muscles of the trunk and lower limb to compensate for shifts in the body's centre of gravity.

Within the pectoral girdle the clavicle is the anterior preaxial bone and the scapula, with the exception of the coracoid process (which is also an anterior bone), is the posterior postaxial bone. The distinction with respect to the coracoid process is that phylogenetically it is a separate bone, its fusion with the scapula is secondary. Consequently, muscles arising from the clavicle or coracoid process belong to the preaxial group, and are therefore supplied by preaxial branches of the brachial plexus.

The amniotic cavity appears between these cells and an overlying layer of cells which form the amniotic ectoderm, derived from the deep aspect of the polar trophoblast (see Fig. 1c). The trophoblast has formed the cytotrophoblast surrounding the blastocyst cavity, and the syncytiotrophoblast which penetrates the endometrial lining of the uterus (see Fig. 1c). Thus the inner cell mass, from which the cells of the future embryo arise, forms no more than a bilaminar disc while the remainder of the blastocyst forms the fetal membranes.
