Suprascapular nerve – anterior approach

Yesterday I compared the traditional lateral approach to the suprascapular nerve to the anterior approach described by Butch Krishnan. I am more familiar with the lateral (Lafosse) approach but the anterior approach was quite straightforward. I have done it in cadavers and on a few patients but not in quite a while. I was in the area because the patient might have had some conjoined tendon / pectoralis minor trauma (he did). I saw the nerve more clearly from the anterior approach but the ligament more clearly from the lateral approach. I wonder if anyone has had similar (or different) experiences?
