The spinal accessory nerve was found passing above the IJV.
Direct distal spinal accessory nerve (SAN) transfer into the suprascapular nerve outside the zone of injury represents our present reconstructive strategy of choice for reinnervation of the supraspinatus and infraspinatus in order to promote shoulder stability and restore active external rotation.
15) The majority of patients underwent a selective ND (levels II to V) with preservation of the sternocleidomastoid muscle, internal jugular vein, and spinal accessory nerve as dictated by operative findings.
Abstract We conducted a prospective study of 11 patients to (1) determine the feasibility of electrophysiologic monitoring of the spinal accessory nerve (SAN) during modified radical neck dissection, (2) determine whether a threshold increase in current is required to stimulate the SAN by comparing the amount of current on initial identification of the SAN and the amount of current after completion of the dissection prior to closure, and (3) determine whether clinical outcome measures of shoulder syndrome at 72 hours and 45 days postoperatively are affected by a threshold increase.
Below the digastric muscle, the spinal accessory nerve is more of a consideration.
The patient was taken to the operating room for wide excision of the mass, including resection of the floor of the neck musculature and neck dissection of levels II, III, and V; the sternocleidomastoid muscle and spinal accessory nerve were sacrificed.
Some degree of scapular drooping is observed following all types of neck dissection, especially when the spinal accessory nerve has been removed.
