Dissection of anterior and lateral regions of neck
Fascial relations at apex of parietal pleura, left lateral view
The subclavian vein has been retracted anteriorly and areolar connective tissue has been removed posterior to the vein. The fascia (24) which extends medially from the anterior border of the anterior scalene muscle toward the internal mammary artery (23) covers the cupula of the pleura.
