The contraction of the sternocleidomastoid muscle
, flexing the cervical, manually resisted.
The anterolateral left cervical region after neck dissection with preservation of the spinal accessory nerve, internal jugular vein and sternocleidomastoid muscle
(7) The third pouch sinus then courses superiorly through the thyrohyoid membrane cranial to the superior laryngeal nerve, posterior to the carotid vessels, and deep to the sternocleidomastoid muscle
. (4) In our series, all the sinus tracts were located caudal to the superior laryngeal nerve, and all opened at the apex of the piriform sinus.
Methodology: The sternocleidomastoid muscle
was removed from its attachment to the clavicle and mastoid process.
 is rich in its vascularity from occipital artery from its upper third, superior thyroid artery in its mid portion and transverse cervical artery inferiorly.

Furthermore, the incised retropharyngeal abscess cavity was connected by a small fistula to a second cervical abscess, medial to the sternocleidomastoid muscle
. Due to increasing fever, pain, and progressing loss of vigilance, the patient underwent a removal of the ventral aspect of the C1 arch, odontoid, and related ligaments through a transoral approach.
Youngsook identified changes in myofascial pain and examined the range of movement in the temporomandibular joint after the application of the kinesiotaping method in patients with latent myofascial trigger points within the sternocleidomastoid muscle
On examination, there was a solitary swelling of 5 x 3 cm on the right side of the neck, below the angle of mandible which was deep to sternocleidomastoid muscle
at the junction of upper and mid-third of the muscle.
The safest identification of SAN is in the posterior neck triangle where it may be recognized exiting from the posterior border of the sternocleidomastoid muscle
at Erb's point .
Ultrasound of the neck revealed mild thickening of the left sternocleidomastoid muscle
and no lymphadenopathy.
To assess the associations of demographics (age, sex, sternocleidomastoid muscle
length, height, and weight) with preoperative and postoperative changes, we used a series of linear models.
