The superior angle of the scapula[citation needed] (or medial angle) is formed by the junction of the superior and medial borders of the scapula. The superior angle of scapula is located at approximate the level of the second thoracic verterbra.[citation needed]

The superior angle of the scapula[citation needed] is thin, smooth, rounded, inclined somewhat lateralward, and gives attachment to a few fibers of the levator scapulae muscle.[1]
