Abstract

 The macroscopic study of 31 adult cadavers proved a variation to Matula and Lang's study. In 2 cases (6.4%) a prevertebral segment ran up to Cy in one of which (3.2%) the middle cervical ganglion was pierced. This, we believe, is significant not only in diagnosis but also in surgical and endovascular treatment.
