The upper border of the crest becomes continuous with the medial border of the acromion and presents an oval facet for articulation with the clavicle at the acromioclavicular joint. The superior surface of the acromion is flattened. The coracoid process is a hook-like projection with a broad base directed upwards and forwards from the upper part of the head, and a narrow more horizontal part which passes anterolateral^ from the upper edge of the base. The tip lies below the junction of the middle and lateral thirds of the clavicle.

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. Development of the yolk sac While the amniotic cavity is being formed, the blastocyst cavity becomes lined by cells of extra-embryonic endoderm. Consequently, the blastocyst wall now consists of three layers: an outer trophoblast (the extraembryonic ectoderm), consisting of cytotrophoblast and syncytiotrophoblast, a loose reticular layer of extra-embryonic mesoderm, and an inner cell layer of extraembryonic endoderm.

The reticular layer of dermis consists of a dense mass of interweaving collagen and elastic connective tissue fibres. It is this layer which gives the skin its toughness and strength. The tissue fibres run in all directions, but are generally tangential to the surface. However, there is a predominant orientation of fibre bundles, with respect to the skin surface, which varies in different regions of the body. It is this orientation which gives rise to the cleavage lines of the skin (see Fig. 1).
