They are described as ‘potential’ spaces because, although they are completely filled with the visceral organs and fluid, there is only a very small amount of free space. All the body cavities are lined with a serous membrane or endothelium, which is a single continuous layer of epithelium that produces a watery or serous lubricating fluid. This is different from the thicker, more proteinaceous secretion mucus, which has a protective function.
It articulates proximally with the scapula at the shoulder joint, and distally with the radius and ulna at the elbow joint. The proximal end of the humerus consists of a large rounded projection, the head. Cranial and lateral to the head there is a large prominence, called the greater tubercle. Another prominence, the lesser tubercle, lies medial to the head. Both of these are sites for attachment of the muscles that support the shoulder joint.
