Sample text

On upper surface of the first rib two gutters and a shallow track can be noted. Of the two gutters, the posterior one has been excavated by the subclavian artery, and the shallower, anterior one by the subclavian vein. They converge in the vicinity of the lateral edge of the rib, while, in the vicinity of the medial edge, they are separated by the Lisfranc’s tubercle which constitutes the caudal osseous insertion of the anterior scalene muscle. The track, which is shallower than the two gutters and positioned posterior to them, is produced by the brachial plexus.

The innervation of the sternocleidomastoid muscle is supplied by the accessory nerve and the third cervical somatic nerve. Below the superficial planes described, we find two very important anatomical elements, namely the omohyoid muscle and the middle cervical fascia; on removing, the latter the neurovascular bundle of the neck is revealed (carotid artery, internal jugular vein, vagus nerve). 3 The Omohyoid Muscle The omohyoid muscle (or scapular hyoid muscle) is a muscle composed of two muscle bellies, one superior (or anterior) and the other inferior (or posterior or lateral), separated by an intermediate tendon, which create an anteromedially convex arch.

5). The Posterior Scalene Muscle Situated posterolaterally in relation to the middle scalene muscle, the posterior scalene muscle inserts cranially on the posterior tubercles of the transverse processes of the fourth, fifth and sixth cervical vertebrae, and sometimes from the fifth to the seventh. It then travels downwards, laterally and posteriorly to the middle scalene muscle, passing above the first rib and going on to insert in a rough portion of the edge of the second rib (Fig. 6). It may often be fused with the middle scalene muscle, with which it appears to form a single body, despite dividing caudally into two bundles that insert, the anterior one on the first rib, and the posterior one on the second rib.
