FASCIAE OF THE NECK The following classification of the rather complicated fascial planes of the neck follows the work of several investigators: 1. Superficial fascia 2. Deep fascia a. Investing layer (anterior or superficial layer) b. Middle, or pretracheal, layer (in front and below hyoid bone only) c. Prevertebral layer (posterior or deep layer) Superficial Fascia The superficial fascia lies beneath the skin and is composed of loose connective tissue, fat, the platysma muscle, and small unnamed nerves and blood vessels (Fig.

The anterior and posterior facial veins cross the triangle in front of the submandibular gland and unite close to the angle of the mandible to form the common facial vein, which empties into the internal jugular vein near the greater cornu of the hyoid bone. It is wise to identify, isolate, clamp, and ligate both these veins.
