The bony spinous processes are palpable posteriorly with noted large, spinous processes at C2, C7, and T1. The C2 and C7 spinous processes are large and the C3-C6 spinous processes are usually bifid. A direct midline interfascial, internervous approach is used to expose the posterior vertebrae (Fig. 3–11, Box 3–7). The ligamentum nuchae, a fibroelastic septum with few elastic fibers, originates from the occiput and inserts onto the C7 spinous process. The supraspinous ligaments are in continuity with the ligamentum nuchae and spinous processes posteriorly, and they blend with the interspinous ligaments anterior to them.

Care must be taken not to retract near the origin of the posterior belly of the digastric and stylohyoid muscles to avoid neuropraxic injury to the facial nerve. Division of the posterior belly of the digastric and stylohyoid muscles allows mobilization of the hyoid bone anteriorly and medially, thus allowing mobilization of the pharynx. The hypoglossal nerve is mobilized from the base of the skull to the posterior border of the mylohyoid bone, where it is then retracted superiorly for the remainder of the case.
