The distal cervical portion
of the left ICA directly below the skull base contained a luminal, semilunar, peripheral T1- and T2-hyperintense signal abnormality compatible with a subacute mural thrombus, with an intimal flap indicative of a carotid dissection that measured 2.
Due to the positive success rate of bone growth stimulators when used on the lower back, the treatment is commonly prescribed by surgeons "off- label" to promote healing following spinal surgery on the neck and cervical portion
of the spine.
The petrous portion of the internal carotid artery (ICA) represents the continuation of the cervical portion
of the ICA as it enters the petrous portion of the temporal bone via the carotid canal.
Retropharyngeal carotid arteries occur when the cervical portion
of the carotid artery is displaced medially.
The posterior limb of the cervical portion
of the modified Blair incision is undermined to obtain full access to the SCM muscle (figure 1, A).
We first used the ventral cervical portion
of the incision to expose the internal carotid artery and trace it up to the skull base, thus providing proximal vascular control.
Plexiform neurofibroma of the cervical portion
of the vagus nerve.
In its cervical portion
, the nerve runs cranially behind the left lobe of the thyroid gland, under the inferior pharyngeal constrictor muscle, and penetrates into the larynx behind the cricothyroid joint between the thyroid ala and the cricoid lamina.
Abfraction is a theory based on engineering principals of occlusal stress being concentrated at the cervical portions
