• Dorsal
  • The usual branches of the subclavian on both sides of the body are the vertebral artery, the internal thoracic artery, the thyrocervical trunk, the costocervical trunk and the dorsal scapular artery, which may branch off the transverse cervical artery which is a branch of the thyrocervical trunk. (wikipedia.org)
  • Fascia nuchae superficialis) and a deeper layer that is located among the Trapezius muscle and that sheaths the deeper cervical musculature from dorsal side. (wikipedia.org)
  • Expanding laterally, the fascia also covers the dorsal musculature. (wikipedia.org)
  • transverse scapular
  • Immediately above and behind the clavicle an areolar space exists between the investing layer and the sheath of the subclavian vessels, and in this space are found the lower part of the external jugular vein, the descending clavicular nerves, the transverse scapular and transverse cervical vessels, and the inferior belly of the omohyoid muscle. (wikipedia.org)
  • anterior cervical
  • Abscesses were drained with a combined approach (oral and anterior cervical discectomy to access the purulent material in different spaces) to and empirical treatment with meropenen and cloxaciline was established (which was maintained as the microbe isolated in cultures was Prevottella oralis), along with proton-pump inhibitor and corticosteroid therapy.

  • alar
  • Anterior to it, the alar (retrovisceral) fascia is attached to it by loose connective tissue only, and thus an easily distended space, the retropharyngeal space, is found between them. (wikipedia.org)
  • Inferior
  • Above, the fascia is attached to the superior nuchal line of the occipital bone, to the mastoid process of the temporal bone, and to the whole length of the inferior border of the body of the mandible. (wikipedia.org)
  • nerve
  • Postganglionic sympathetic fibers from superior cervical sympathetic ganglion reach the gland as periarterial nerve plexuses around the middle meningeal artery and their function is mainly vasoconstriction. (wikipedia.org)
  • The contribution of the 5th cervical nerve may stem from an accessory phrenic nerve. (wikipedia.org)
  • Region V: posterior triangle group of lymph nodes located along the lower half of the spinal accessory nerve and the transverse cervical artery. (wikipedia.org)
  • layer
  • Between the mandible and the mastoid process it ensheathes the parotid gland-the layer which covers the gland extends upward under the name of the parotideomasseteric fascia and is fixed to the zygomatic arch. (wikipedia.org)
  • spine
  • The Halo obtains complete fixation and arrests almost all movement of the cervical spine. (angelfire.com)
  • In each procedure, the patient was positioned prone on a Jackson Table (Mizuho OSI, Union City, CA). Care was taken not to hyperextend the cervical spine. (hindawi.com)
  • gland
  • On the right side the fascia has been cut away except in the area occupied by the mammary gland. (stanford.edu)
