Cervical Fascia PPT Summary

  1. The cervical fascia is composed of multiple layers, including the superficial, investing, prevertebral, and pretracheal layers.
  2. The investing layer of deep cervical fascia surrounds the entire neck and splits into superficial and deep layers to enclose the trapezius and sternocleidomastoid muscles.
  3. The prevertebral fascia covers the anterior vertebral muscles and extends laterally, forming a fascial floor for the posterior triangle of the neck.
  4. The carotid sheath is a tubular fascial investment that contains the common and internal carotid arteries, internal jugular vein, vagus nerve, and other structures.
  5. Infections in the neck can spread through the fascial layers, leading to complications such as retropharyngeal abscess or airway obstruction.
