Further detail is provided in Gray's Anatomy (Standring 2005), which states that the clavicle, subclavius, SCM and omohyoid, lateral part of the carotid sheath, phrenic nerve, transverse cervical, suprascapular and ascending cervical arteries, subclavian vein, prevertebral fascia, and phrenic nerve are all anterior to scalenus anterior.
Through various surgical techniques, a plane is identified between the carotid sheath and esophagus, and a blunt dissection is made down to the prevertebral fascia.
Additional findings uncovered by MRI included cord compressions (five patients), cord contusion/edema (four), ligamentous injuries (three), epidural hemorrhage (two), and prevertebral edema (one).

The mass had infiltrated the thyroid gland bilaterally, engulfing the trachea and proximal esophagus as well as the prevertebral tissue (figure 1, A).
In more subtle cases, perhaps in the setting of secondary signs of injury such as prevertebral soft-tissue swelling, measurements and ratios are often used to help make the diagnosis.
2), with multiple prevertebral and paravertebral collaterals (Fig.
Involvement of both RLNs following unilateral thoracic paravertebral block is possible, as spread of local anaesthetic to the contralateral paravertebral space can occur via the prevertebral or the epidural space resulting in segmental contralateral anaesthesia (5).
A further investigation using neck computerized tomography revealed a mass in the left prevertebral area, with dimensions of 50 x 35 x 25 mm, pushing the carotid artery forward and compressing the left internal carotid artery, with peripheral contrast enhancement which was assumed to be a recurrence of the primary lesion (Figure 1).
