Surgical anatomy of neck

  1. 1. DR SATINDER PAL SINGH
  2. 2. SURFACE ANATOMY OF NECK
  3. 3. The neck is a biomechanical wonder!  Connects the head to the trunk  Conduit for blood vessels, nerves, and hollow organs  All of these complicated structures are packed in a very narrow area that allows for a great deal of mobility for the head as it moves relative to the ground
  4. 4. FASCIA  The neck is divided into anatomical compartments by strong fascia, which is arranged in layers and tends to align neck structures in bundles. These are real and important anatomical divisions and have great relevance clinically.  The superficial fascia in the neck contains a thin sheet of muscle (the platysma).
  5. 5. Deep Cervical Fascia  Form the boundaries of compartments  Fascial spaces can communicate infection or fluid to other regions of the body  Used as a guide to surgical dissection  Allow the neck structures to glide past one another  Supports the thyroid, lymph nodes and blood vessels
  6. 6. Deep Fascia  an investing layer, which surrounds all structures in the neck;  the prevertebral layer, which surrounds the vertebral column and the deep muscles associated with the back;  the pretracheal layer, which encloses the viscera of the neck; and  the carotid sheaths, which receive a contribution from the other three fascial layers and surround the two major neurovascular bundles on either side of the neck.
  7. 7. Deep Cervical Fascia
  8. 8. Deep Cervical Fascia
  9. 9. Deep Cervical Fascial Spaces  Retropharyngeal - b/n prevertebral and buccopharyngeal  Pretracheal - b/n infrahyoids and trachea  Lateral pharyngeal - lat to pharynx and communicate with RP and SM spaces  Submandibular - below tongue  deep portion above mylohyoid  superficial portion below mylohyoid
  10. 10. Platysma •Muscle of Facial Expression •Innervated by the cervical branch of the facial nerve
  11. 11. Sternocleidomastoid The sternomastoid muscle divides the neck into two anatomical triangles. •Flexes and rotates the head •Innervation is by CN XI
  12. 12. Trapezius •Moves and stabilizes the scapula, extends the head •Innervation is by CNXI

  21. 21. Suprahyoid Muscles
  22. 22. Suprahyoid Muscles (geniohyoid)
  23. 23. Infrahyoid (Strap) Muscles
  24. 24. Actions of Suprahyoid and Infrahyoid Muscles
  25. 25. Branches of the external carotid artery  superior thyroid artery  ascending pharyngeal artery  lingual artery  facial artery  occipital artery  posterior auricular artery  superficial temporal artery  maxillary artery
  26. 26. Veins  Collecting blood from the skull, brain, superficial face, and parts of the neck, the internal jugular vein.  The paired internal jugular veins join with the subclavian veins posterior to the sternal end of the clavicle to form the right and left brachiocephalic veins.  Tributaries to each internal jugular vein include the inferior petrosal sinus, and the facial, lingual, pharyngeal, occipital, superior thyroid, and middle thyroid veins.
  27. 27. Innervation and Venous Drainage of the Neck
  28. 28. PHARYNX  The is a musculofascial half-cylinder that links the oral and nasal cavities in the head to the larynx and esophagus in the neck.  The pharyngeal cavity is a common pathway for air and food.
  29. 29. PHARYNGEAL WALL  The pharyngeal wall is formed by skeletal muscles and by fascia.  Gaps between the muscles are reinforced by the fascia and provide routes for structures to pass through the wall.

  44. 44. INCISION AND FLAPS OF NECK  Allow adequate exposure of the surgical field.  Assure adequate vascularization of the skin flaps.  Protect the carotid artery if the sternocleidomastoid muscle has to be sacrificed.  Include scars from previous procedures (e.g., surgery, biopsy, etc.).  Consider the location of the primary tumor.  Facilitate the use of reconstructive techniques.  Contemplate the potential need of postoperative radiotherapy.  Produce acceptable cosmetic results.
  45. 45. Some popular skin incisions for functional and selective neck dissection. (A) Gluck incision for unilateral and bilateral neck dissection. B) Double-Y incision of Martin. (C) Single-Y incision (D) Schobinger incision.
  46. 46. E) Conley incision. F) Mac Fee incision. The Mac Fee incision has excellent cosmetic results. (G) H incision.
  47. 47. The double-Y incision of Martin is also popular for functional and selective neck dissection.
  48. 48. The single-Y incision avoids one of the crossings of the double-Y incision but makes the dissection of the supraclavicular fossa difficult.
  49. 49. A popular incision in our practice is the classic Gluck incision For a bilateral functional neck dissection the incision extends between both mastoid tips, crossing the midline at the level of the cricoid arch. This incision allows good exposure when the neck dissection is to be combined with total or partial laryngectomy.
