: Putative List of 40 Questions to be on Head Neck Examination
: Instructions. Please cull 40 questions from the global True False question library posted below for Lectures 56-73. Please represent most, if not all, lectures. As I count them, there are 18 lectures. Thus, chose two per lecture and an additional four for forty. Start a new thread of a similar title if the edits get a bit tedious and then continue. Ideally, 40 questions would be on this list by Wed. AM so that I can print the Head Neck examination in time for you to take the written examination at 2:30. No later than 9AM would be great. As before, I may make a minor changes to each question to change, or not, whether the question is true or false.

: Question 01 The axillary artery, but not the subclavian vein passes through the interscalene triangle.

: Question 02 The facial vein and its tributaries are considered to be valveless.

: Question 03 The interval between the heads of origin of the sternocleidomastoid muscle provides a surface landmark for accessing the subclavian artery.

: Question 04 The external jugular vein is formed by the confluence of the retromandibular vein and the facial vein.

: Question 05 Hypertrophy of the scalene muscles may cause weakness in the upper extremity.

: Question 06 The dorsal scapular nerve passes through the interscalene triangle.

: Question 07 The apex of the vertebral triangle is at the transverse process of C5.

: Question 08 The three parts of the subclavian artery are referenced to the pectoralis minor muscle.

: Question 09 The interscalene triangle contains the brachial plexus and the subclavian artery.

: Question 010 The coronal suture is between the parietal bone and the occipital bone

: Question 011 The infraorbital nerve is from the ophthalmic division of the trigeminal nerve.

: Question 012 The pterion marks the location of the anterior branch of the middle meningeal artery.

: Question 013 A subdural hematoma accumulates blood between the meningeal layer of the dura mater and the arachnoid mater.

: Question 014 The following muscles contribute to elevation of the upper lip (as during a smile): levator labii superioris, zygomaticus minor, orbicularis oris.

: Question 015 The superior synovial cavity of the TMJ is a gliding joint that allows for protraction and retraction of the mandible.

: Question 016 A lesion of the lingual nerve within the floor of the mouth is expected to disrupt both taste and touch to the anterior 2/3 of the tongue.

: Question 017 The chorda tympani joins onto the inferior alveolar nerve before distributing to the anterior 2/3 of the tongue.

: Question 018 The great vein of Galen combines with the inferior sagittal sinus to form the straight sinus.

: Question 019 The cribriform plate of the ethmoid bone is located in the anterior cranial fossa.

: Question 020 The superior orbital fissure marks the anterior boundary of the cavernous sinus.

: Question 021 The circle of Willis provides an anastomosis between the anterior and posterior arterial circulation to the brain.

: Question 022 The cerebellum is primarily supplied by the vertebral arteries, whereas the cerebrum is primarily supplied by the external carotid arteries.

: Question 023 The abducens nerve is unique in that it is the only cranial nerve to arise from the brainstemís posterior surface.

: Question 024 The vestibulocochlear nerve and glossopharyngeal nerve exit the posterior cranial fossa by passing through the internal acoustic meatus.

: Question 025 A tumor at the apex of the lung is expected to cause unilateral pupil constriction.

: Question 026 The lateral rectus muscle adducts the globe and is the sole innervation of the abducens nerve.

: Question 027 The palatine tonsils are located between the palatopharyngeal arch and the palatoglossal arch.

: Question 028 The vallecula is a space located between the posterior aspect of the tongue and the epiglottis.

: Question 029 The intrinsic muscles of the tongue are all innervated by the hypoglossal nerve.

: Question 030 None of the paranasal sinuses drain directly into the inferior nasal meatus.

: Question 031 The piriform recesses are regions of the laryngopharynx that lie lateral to the larynx itself.

: Question 032 "Epiglottic taste" is generally attributed to SVA fibers conveyed by the vagus nerve.

: Question 033 The cricoid cartilage is compared to a signet ring.

: Question 034 The female vocal fold is 60% longer than in the male.

: Question 035 The lingual nerve in the floor of the oral cavity is crossed superiorly by Wharton's duct.

: Question 036 The sensation of taste (SVA) from the anterior 2/3 of the tongue is carried by the chorda tympani nerve.

: Question 037 Like roof shingles, the pharyngeal constrictor muscles overlap with the inferior constrictor being most posterior (edge of roof).

: Question 038 Wernicke's area is predominantly involved with speech comprehension, whereas Broca's area is predominantly involved with speech production.

: Question 039 The inferior cervical ganglion is often fused with the T1 sympathetic trunk ganglion to form the stellate ganglion.

: Question 040 The superficial temporal artery is not a content of the temporal fossa.
