Head and Neck Anatomy

Chapter

Abstract

The neck is a complicated part of human anatomy, for it is crammed full of muscles, vital organs, vessels and nerves, many of which are in transit between the head and the rest of the body. For convenience of description, and to make the study of this congested region more manageable, the neck may be visualized as a composition of triangles—anterior, posterior, and lateral—each of which can be examined for contents.
