  • BACKGROUND CONTEXT In recent literature, a soft-tissue communication between the rectus capitis posterior major (RCPma) muscle and the cervical dura mater has been identified. [...] Key MethodMETHODS Gross dissection was performed on 11 cadavers to remove the RCPma, the soft-tissue communication, and a section of posterior cervical dura mater as one continuous unit. Paraffin embedding and sectioning followed by hematoxylin and eosin staining was conducted to validate the connection.Expand Abstract
