Dissection of anterior and lateral regions of neck
Relations of larynx, anterolateral view
The infrahyoid muscles have been cut away. The left lobe of the thyroid gland has been removed. The left common carotid artery, internal jugular vein and vagus nerve have been retracted laterally.

3 . Thyrohyoid muscle (divided and elevated)
4 . Thyroid cartilage
5 . Cut ends of fibers of thyrohyoid muscle
6 . Sternothyroid muscle (cut across)
7 . Inferior pharyngeal constrictor muscle
8 . Cricothyroid muscle
9 . Cricoid cartilage
