• nerves
  • The cervical nerves have been retained approximately in their normal positions with the exception of the first nerve (16), which has been displaced superiorly. (stanford.edu)
  • 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)
  • The phrenic nerve originates mainly from the 4th cervical nerve, but also receives contributions from the 5th and 3rd cervical nerves (C3-C5) in humans. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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.

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • zygomatic arch
  • 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)
  • lymphatic
  • Applied feature: Somatic dysfunction of Sibson's fascia can cause decreased lymphatic drainage from anywhere in the body. (wikipedia.org)
