Anatomic landmarks for nerves of the neck: A vade mecum for neurosurgeons

Academic Article


  • ANATOMIC LANDMARKS ARE often quite useful in localizing structures within the human body, especially in the surgical realm. We have reviewed the medical literature and multiple texts of surgery and anatomy and culled together many anatomic landmarks regarding important nerves of the neck. This region is complicated by formidable anatomy, and a single collection of the relationships of the nerves in this region is lacking in the literature. It is our hope that this collection will serve to assist the surgeon who operates in this region of the body.
