PurposeDespite the intrathoracic part being short, the right laryngeal recurrent nerve is often injured during thoracic surgery. The aim of this cadaver study was to understand the mechanisms of right laryngeal recurrent nerve injuries during thoracic surgery and to describe anatomical landmarks for its preservation.MethodsDissections were performed on 10 fresh human cadavers. A right anterolateral thoracic wall segment was removed, preserving the first rib. Dissections were carried out to… CONTINUE READING
