|Sternocleidomastoid branch of superior thyroid artery|
|Latin||ramus sternocleidomastoideus arteriae thyroideae superioris|
The sternocleidomastoid branch of superior thyroid artery runs downward and lateralward across the sheath of the common carotid artery, and supplies the Sternocleidomastoideus and neighboring muscles and integument; it frequently arises as a separate branch from the external carotid.
