The contraction of the sternocleidomastoid
muscle, flexing the cervical, manually resisted.
Specimens of bilateral neck dissection with preservation of the spinal accessory nerve, internal jugular vein and sternocleidomastoid
A sliver of thyroid cartilage was excised to trace the tract into the piriform fossa (SCM = sternocleidomastoid
Neuromuscular efficiency of the sternocleidomastoid
and anterior scalene muscles in patients with chronic neck pain.
In 3/80 (4%) of the fetal specimens, a duplicated EJV (with an "H" shaped communication joining the two), was located on the sternocleidomastoid
The skin incision  started from the level of the zygomatic bone in its preauricular limb curving down to go behind the ear lobule and then curving down over the sternocleidomastoid
muscle to reach the upper crease of neck.
On examination, there was a solitary swelling of 5 x 3 cm on the right side of the neck, below the angle of mandible which was deep to sternocleidomastoid
muscle at the junction of upper and mid-third of the muscle.
The first branch was identified penetrating the sternocleidomastoid
muscle and the secondary branch fusing with the cervical plexus.
Ultrasound of the neck revealed mild thickening of the left sternocleidomastoid

To assess the associations of demographics (age, sex, sternocleidomastoid
muscle length, height, and weight) with preoperative and postoperative changes, we used a series of linear models.
They rarely originate in the trapezius, sternocleidomastoid
, and temporal muscles.
With the projectile still in place, routine anterior sternocleidomastoid
