Neck dissection

Close view of the neck dissected and showing neck vessels.The main vessels of neck are carotid arteries, and vertebral arteries. The right and left subclavian arteries give rise to the thyrocervical trunk, which gives other branches: Transverse cervical artery (Supplies the trapezius and rhomboid muscles), suprascapular artery, and inferior thyroid artery (Supplies thyroid). From the inferior thyroid artery arises the ascending cervical artery (Supplies the posterior prevertebral muscles)
