Some are designed for helping you stabilise your neck such as the longus capitus (a flexor of the neck that attached from the neck to the skull), while others such as the longus colli (a deep neck flexor) are muscles, which are more concerned with the posture of your neck rather than big movements to turn your head or look up," she said.
The sagittal CECT scan of the neck shows amorphous calcification of the longus colli muscle and a retropharyngeal effusion (red arrow).
Identification of the longus colli is also key (Figure 2), as a cadaveric study using dye and clinical validation has shown adequate spread of the anesthetic solution to the stellate ganglion using a technique in which the needle tip is deep to the prevertebral fascia to avoid spread along the carotid sheath and superficial to the fascia investing the longus colli to avoid injection into the muscle substance [34].
The cervical segment is supported by the longus colli muscle anteriorly and the semispinalis cervicis and cervical multifidus muscles posteriorly.

Acute calcific longus colli tendonitis (ACLCT) is an inflammatory response of the prevertebral neck musculature due to pathognomonic calcium hydroxapatite deposition in the longus colli tendon at the vertebral body level of C1-C2.
The brown/beige markers P2RX5 and PAT2 were detected in the carotid sheath and longus colli areas around the neck, where thermogenic fat cells are present, whereas the white fat cell marker ASC-1 was much more prominent in the subcutaneous and omental fat depots, both of which predominantly consist of white adipocytes.
Acute calcific tendinitis of the longus colli muscle (CTLC) is a rare and self-limiting inflammatory disorder of the tendon insertions.
