Anatomy of the Neck
- 1.1k Downloads
The cervical spine is a complex and vital region, and several critically important structures are in close proximity in a small area. The neck is limited superiorly by the pericranium cervical line that goes from the inferior portion of the mental symphysis to the inion, that corresponds to the point of confluence of dural sinuses. Inferiorly, the neck continues with the thorax and the upper limbs, by clavicles and shoulders.
