Duke Anatomy - Lab 22: Retropharyngeal space

In the last lab you examined many of the structures on the anterior surface of the neck, and looked briefly at the retropharyngeal space and its contents while moving them aside, but you have not yet dissected those structures in detail. Today you will explore the prevertebral area and the back of the pharynx (retropharyngeal space) in much more detail. In order to do this the head must be detached from the vertebral column to allow a posterior approach to the cervical viscera. This is a challenging and labor-intensive dissection.

Thyroid Anatomy

The thyroid gland is a highly vascularized organ located anteriorly in the neck, deep to the platysma, sternothyroid and sternohyoid muscles, and extending from the 5th cervical  (C5) to the 1st thoracic (T1) vertebrae.  The gland consists of two lobes (left and right) connected by a thin, median isthmus overlying the 2nd to 4th tracheal rings, typically forming an "H" or "U" shape.  Occasionally the isthmus is absent and the thyroid exists as two distinct lobes.  Embryologically, the thyroid gland develops as a thickening in the pharyngeal floor that elongates inferiorly as the thyroglossal duct, dividing into two lobes as it descends through the neck

Do you need to test for different types of sensation on the face?

I know that you test different modalities in the peripheral nervous system for the: Spinothalamic tract (pain, temperature, and light touch) Dorsal column (vibration, proprioception, and touch localisation / light touch). However, someone was saying that they had been told to test these modalities separately on the face as well - e.g. Do pin prick test and light touch separately. This doesn't make sense to me if the afferent pathways of the trigeminal nerve don't go through these spinal columns. Is this correct? Does the trigeminal nerve have afferent pathways that go through the Dorsal column or Spinothalamic tract and / or does it need to be tested separately?

Minimally invasive surgery for lumbar spinal stenosis

Recent trends in spine surgery, such as endoscopic and other “micro” techniques, promised less invasive procedures and better outcomes compared with conventional open techniques for decompressing nerves. Minimally invasive techniques are popular with patients, promoted by industry, and increasingly used by surgeons.1 However, recent studies have failed to report any clear benefits for patients.2 Is our hunger for new techniques based on little more than a gut feeling that new and smaller is always better and, if so, is it ethically justifiable to “test” these new techniques on patients? In a linked paper (doi:10.1136/bmj.h1603) Nerland and colleagues provide some hard evidence to help inform these important debates.3
