|anterior lamina of the prevertebral fascia, attaching anteriorly to visceral
fascia behind esophagus in the superior thorax
|alar fascia separates the retropharyngeal space above from the posterior mediastinum below
|posterior part of the visceral fascia of the neck
|buccopharyngeal fascia lies behind the pharynx and esophagus
|fascia that invests the entire eyeball except for the cornea
|bulbar sheath separates the eyeball from the surrounding orbital structures (fat, etc.); it is fused with the sheath of the optic nerve posteriorly, and it is penetrated by the tendons of the extraocular mm.
|deep fascia covering the infrahyoid muscles
|infrahyoid fascia is composed of two layers: a superficial layer associated
with the sternohyoid and omohyoid mm. and a deep layer associated with the
sterhothyroid and thyrohoid mm.
|fascia surrounding the masseter m.
|masseteric fascia attaches to the zygomatic arch superiorly and to the mandible inferiorly
|part of the orbital septum within the eyelid
|superior and inferior palpebral fasciae can be identified; these are subunits
of the orbital septum; the superior palpebral fascia is penetrated by the tendon
of the levator palpebrae superioris m.
|fascia surrounding the parotid gland
|parotid fascia is an extension onto the face of the superficial layer of deep cervical fascia; it is very dense, extends into the parotid gland and is very difficult to dissect
|submucosa of the pharynx
|pharyngobasilar fascia is attached to the base of skull and is best seen above the superior edge of the superior pharyngeal constrictor m.
|anterior part of the visceral fascia of the neck
|pretracheal fascia covers the larynx,/trachea and thyroid gland
|deep fascia surrounding vertebral column and associated muscles
|prevertebral fascia covers the scalene mm. where it is called scalene fascia
|fascia that surrounds the pterygoid mm.
|pterygoid fascia attaches to the pterygoid plates
|part of the prevertebral fascia covering the scalene mm.
| reinforces the cervical pleura (known there as Sibson's fascia) and extends
out onto the ventral primary rami of spinal nn. C5-T1 as the axillary fascia
|fascia, superficial layer of deep cervical
|deep fascia investing all of the deep neck structures
|superficial layer of deep cervical fascia extends between the trapezius m. and sternocleidomastoid m.. in the posterior cervical triangle and between the paired sternocleidomastoid mm. in the anterior cervical triangle
|a strong aponeurotic sheet of fascia that covers the superficial surface
of the temporalis m.
|temporal fascia is an origin for the temporalis m.; it attaches to the bones of the skull superiorly and to the zygomatic arch inferiorly
|deep fascia enclosing the visceral structures of the neck (thyroid gland,
larynx, trachea, esophagus)
|the anterior part is also known as pretracheal fascia; the posterior part also known as buccopharyngeal fascia
|a plane of connective tissue that separates the superficial part of the
eyelid from the orbit
|orbital septum attaches to the periosteum at the margins of the orbit; orbital
septum and tarsal plate form a complete layer posterior to the orbicularis oculi m. that prevents blood and fluids from passing superficially or deeply across the eyelid; blunt trauma to the forehead and scalp may result in blood
pooling in the superficial part of the eyelid because of this septum
|fascia that lines the orbit
|periorbita is the periosteum of the orbit; it is loosely attached to the bones of the orbit and is easily dissected from them
