16) Cervical thymic cysts are intimately associated with the carotid sheath; they frequently splay the carotid artery and jugular vein, particularly when they involve the suprahyoid
During dissection, care was taken not to injure the blood vessels and innervations in the infra- and suprahyoid
or plunging ranula is large and can manifest as a neck mass that extends through the mylohyoid.
The mass was centered in the supraglottis, and it involved the entire suprahyoid
epiglottis, with pre-epiglottic space extension.
The dissection is carried along the suprahyoid
musculature to the body of the hyoid.
In addition, the forward movement of the maxillomandibular complex improves the tension and collapsibility of the suprahyoid
and velopharyngeal musculature.
