BACKGROUND CONTEXT Although most cadaveric studies of the Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve (RLN) have focused on course variations, they have usually been done on preserved (fixed and embalmed) cadavers, which renders the RLN immobile and of less surgical landmark value. PURPOSE Our aim was to perform a thorough exposure in fresh cadavers, with the intention of investigating the Inferior Thyroid Artery (ITA) and Berry's ligament as reliable landmarks for the identification of the RLN in anterior… CONTINUE READING
