New prevalence number for os acromiale - 1 to 15 percent ?[edit]


I just added a new reference (Sammarco 2000) I found for the prevalence of os acromiale, which gives a number of 1-15 percent, as opposed to the old figure here of only 1.4. That number was unsourced, and I'm not an anatomy student and so have no reason to doubt it - but I just wanted to know if there was a newer or different number. But I was surprised when I found the number in Sammarco 2000 that was (possibly) so much higher.

Does anyone else have any other info?
