This is a practical session on the anatomy of the thyroid gland and related structures including an outline of the triangles of the neck.
The video session is described with the aid of plastinated specimens, plastic models and cadaveric dissection.
After completion of this video session, it is expected that you will be able to identify the:
Boundaries of the triangles of the neck: anterior triangle, posterior triangle.
Subdivisions of the anterior triangle: submental, submandibular, carotid and muscular.
The relations of the strap muscles to the thyroid gland: sternohyoid, omohyoid, sternothyroid, and thyrohyoid.
Shape and position of the thyroid lobes and isthmus.
Pyramidal lobe and levator glandulae muscle.
Relations of the thyroid gland to: strap muscles, trachea, esophagus, thyroid cartilage, recurrent laryngeal nerve, parathyroid glands, sympathetic trunk, carotid sheath, and pretracheal fascia
The origin, course, and branches of the superior and inferior thyroid arteries.
The relation of inferior thyroid artery to recurrent laryngeal nerve.
Origin of the right recurrent laryngeal nerve.
Location of cervical nerves in relation to scalenus anterior and medius muscles.
Pretracheal and prevertebral fascia.
Blocks of the neck: musculo-vertebral and respiratory-digestive .
Contents of the carotid sheath and their relations: carotid vessels, internal jugular vein, and vagus nerve.
