. The neck (L. collum, cervix) is the transitional area between the head superiorly and the clavicles inferiorly that joins the head to the trunk and limbs.

2. It serves as a major passage for structures passing between them.

3. In addition, several important organs with unique functions are located here: the larynx and the thyroid and parathyroid glands, for example.

skin of the neck cutaneous nerves

Great occipital nerve (C2)

  • Lesser occipital nerve (C2)
  • Great auricular nerve (C2,C3)
  • Transverse cutaneous nerve (C2,C3)
  • Supraclavicular nerves (C3,C4)
Skin of the neck (cutaneous nerves)

Major muscles of the neck

Sternomastoid muscle

important notes

Layers of deep cervical fascia: investing layer, pretracheal, prevertebral and carotid sheath

  • Investing layer of deep fascia encloses sternomastoid and trapeziusmuscles
  • Contents of carotid sheath: CCA and ICA, IJV and vagus nerve
  • N.B: all parts of skin of face and scalp infront of the ear innervated by trigeminal nerve except area over the angle of the mandibule and parotid gland innervated by great auricular nerve
Important notes
important veins 1 external jugular vein

Begin: just behind angle of the mandible by union of posterior auricular vein and post.division of the retromandibular vein

  • End: drain into subclavian vein
  • tributaries 1. post.external jugular vein

2. ant. Jugular vein

Important veins1. external jugular vein
important veins 2 internal jugular vein

Begin: as contiuation of sigmoid sinus and leave skull throught jugular foramen

  • End: join subclavian vein to form brachiocephalic vein
  • Tributaries:

1. facial vein

2. Lingual vein

3. Pharyngeal vein

4. Thyroid veins

Important veins2. internal jugular vein
sternomastoid muscle

Origin :

a) Sternal head: Rounded and tendinous from front of manubrium.

b) Clavicular head: Thin and fleshy from upper surface of med. ⅓ of

clavicle.

Insertion :

Mastoid process and lateral ⅓ of the superior nuchal line.

Action :

1- Unilateral contraction → directs the face to opposite side.

2- Bilateral contraction → tilt the head backwards.

Nerve Supply : → spinal accessory n.

* Injury to the muscle leads to it contracture and shortening → Torticollis.

The oblique position of the sternomastoid divides the side of the neck into anterior and posterior triangle.

A note about the scalene muscles :

Scalenus anterior

Scalenusmedius

Scalenus posterior

Origin :transverse processes of cervical vertebrae .

Insertion :first and second ribs .

Action :

1- Lateral flexion of neck .

2- Fixation of ribs during forced inspiration .

Nerve supply :

cervical and brachial plexuses .

. The subclavian vein passes infront the of scalenus anterior

. The subclavian artery and brachial plexus pass between scalenus anterior and scalenusmedius .
