Cervical portion (or cervical segment) of the internal carotid
begins at the bifurcation of the common carotid, opposite the upper
border of the thyroid cartilage, and runs perpendicularly upward,
in front of the transverse processes of the upper three cervical
vertebr, to the carotid canal in the petrous portion of the
temporal bone. It is comparatively superficial at its commencement,
where it is contained in the carotid triangle, and lies behind and
lateral to the external carotid, overlapped by the
Sternocleidomastoideus, and covered by the deep fascia, Platysma,
and integument: it then passes beneath the parotid gland, being
crossed by the hypoglossal nerve, the Digastricus and
Stylohyoideus, and the occipital and posterior auricular arteries.
