RELATIONS IN THE NECK

1. In front of the prevertebral fascia lie the viscera of the neck (pharynx, oesophagus, larynx, trachea)
2. Anterolaterally - carotid sheath (CCA, IJV, recurrent laryngeal).
3. Cervical sympathetic trunk lies behind the carotid sheath.
4. Above the larynx is the hyoid bone (C3).
5. The hyoid + larynx are suspended by muscles from the skull.
6. The anterior part of the neck extends no higher than the mandible, being limited by the myelohyoid.
7. CN IX, X, XI, XII enter the neck from the BOS.
8. The whole neck is surrounded by the deep cervical fascia (contains the trapezius + SCM).
