SCALP

ANTERIOR NERVE
A. Anterior nerve: supraorbital nerve@supplies the scalp as far posteriorly as
the vertex
SCALP

LATERAL NERVES
B. Lateral nerves: auriculotemporal nerve@ascends anterior to the auricle and
supplies the scalp in the temporal region; lesser occipital nerve@ascends
on the side ofthe neck and supplies the scalp posterior to the auricle
SCALP

POSTERIOR NERVES
C. Posterior nerves: greater occipital nerve@emerges from the trapezius
inferolateral to the external occipital protuberance and ascends to supply
the scalp as far anteriorly as the vertex; third occipital nerve (dorsal ramus
ofthe third cervical spinal nerve)@supplies a small portion ofthe scalp on
the back ofthe neck, near the midline
SCALP

ANTERIOR ARTERY
A. Anterior artery: supraorbital artery@accompanies the supraorbital nerve
SCALP

LATERAL ARTERY
B. Lateral artery: superficial temporal artery@accompanies the auriculo-
temporal nerve and divides into an anterior and a posterior branch which
supply the lateral part ofthe scalp
SCALP

POSTERIOR ARTERIES
C. Posterior arteries: posterior auricular artery@arises from the external
carotid artery posterior to the ramus of the mandible and ascends poste-
rior to the auricle to supply the scalp posterior and superior to the auricle;
occipital artery@arises from the external carotid artery in the neck and
ascends posteriorly across the back of the neck to course with the greater
occipital nerve
SCALP

VEINS
LYMPHATICS
CLINICAL NOTE: "surgical flaps"
D. Veins: accompany their respective arteries

E. Lymphatics: drain directly or indirectly to deep cervical nodes; in the lat-
ter instance, lymph first passes through either occipital, retroauricular,
superficial parotid, or deep parotid nodes

F. Clinical note: since arteries and nerves ascend into the scalp, surgical flaps
are left attached from below
