Lecture 56-57: Cervical Fascia Answers (Alexis, Laura, Lexi, Opeyemi, Kristina, David)
1. The superficial cervical fascia, but not the prevertebral or the pretracheal fascia, envelops the strap muscles.
- true
2. The axillary artery, but not the subclavian vein passes through the interscalene triangle.
true ⇒ subclavian vein is superficial
3. The posterior scalene muscle is the posterior boundary of the interscalene triangle.
false ⇒ posterior boundary is middle scalene muscle
4. The superficial cervical fascia has a superior attachment at the superior nuchal line.
true
5. Posterior to the buccopharyngeal fascia and anterior to the alar layer of prevertebral fascia is the "danger" space.
false ⇒ the alar layer is anterior to the danger space, not the other way around, also prevertebral layer of deep cervical fascia is deep to the danger space
6. Immediately anterior to the alar layer of prevertebral fascia is the retropharyngeal space.
true
7. The carotid sheath receives contributes from each of the named deep cervical fasciae.
true
8. The vagus nerve, within the carotid sheath, lies anterior to the common carotid artery.
false ⇒ vagus lies posterior to the common carotid artery within the sheath
9. The internal jugular vein, within the carotid sheath, lies lateral to the common carotid artery.
true
10. The prevertebral fascia splits in either side of the manubrium and forms the suprasternal space.
false ⇒ superficial cervical fascia
11. The superficial cervical fascia is deep cervical fascia.
true
12. The long thoracic nerve typically pierces the posterior scalene muscle inferior to the dorsal scapular nerve.
false ⇒ goes anterior to the posterior scalene
13. The most inferior attachment of the superficial cervical fascia, at the vertebral spines, is at the spine of the second thoracic vertebra.
false ⇒ attaches to acromion
14. The tracheoesphageal groove is within the pretracheal fascia.
true
15. The spinal accessory nerve enters the posterior triangle superior to the supraclavicular nerves.
true
16. The phrenic nerve crosses the anterior scalene deep to pretracheal fascia.
true
17. The inferior thyroid artery passes the posterior aspect of the carotid sheath.
true
18. The suprascapular and transverse cervical arteries cross the anterior scalene superficial to the prevertebral fascia.
true
19. The axillary sheath is a diverticulum of the prevertebral fascia.
true
20. The external jugular vein is formed by the confluence of the retromandibular vein and the facial vein.
false ⇒ retromandibular v. & post. auricular v.
21. The maxillary vein, by way of the pterygoid venous plexus, communicates with the cavernous sinus.
true
22. Veins of the orbit provide communication between the region of the face and the cavernous sinus.
true
23. The facial vein and its tributaries are considered to be valveless.
true
24. The interval between the heads of origin of the sternocleidomastoid muscle provides a surface landmark for accessing the subclavian artery.
true
25. Infection within the pretracheal space may spread to the superior mediastinum.
true
26. Infection within the retropharyngeal space may spread to the posterior mediastinum.
true
27. Infection within the "danger" space may spread throughout the abdominopelvic cavity.
false ⇒ stops at T12
28. An intraoral object (toothbrush or pencil) that penetrates the "throat" might sever the internal carotid artery, introduce infection into the retropharyngeal space, and introduce infection into the "danger" space.
true
