Dissection of anterior and lateral regions of neck
Close-up view of clavicular attachment of middle layer of cervical fascia; inferior deep cervical lymphatics, anterosuperior view
The left clavicle crosses the lower part of the view. The sling-like thickening of fascia (5) which invests the intermediate tendon of the omohyoid muscle has been divided to expose the tendon. The lympathic structures visible at 11 lie in a natural opening in the fascia.
1 . Superficial cervical artery
2 . Nerve to inferior belly omohyoid muscle
3 . Superior belly omohyoid muscle
4 . Inferior deep cervical lymph nodes and lymph vessels
5 . Superficial fascia (middle layer)
6 . Prevertebral fascia
7 . External jugular vein (cut off)
8 . Superficial transverse vein
9 . Inferior belly omohyoid muscle
10 . External jugular vein near junction with transverse scapular vein (covered by fascia)
11 . Inferior deep cervical lymph node
12 . Clavicle
