Özet

During gross anatomy dissection of the neck region, an anatomical variation of the ascending cervical artery was detected. Normally this artery is a branch of the inferior thyroid artery, which is a branch of the thyrocervical trunk. In our case, we found that the ascending cervical artery emerged from the superficial cervical artery, nearly 1 cm. lateral to the origin of this artery from the thyrocervical trunk.
