Default Anatomy question for the day.

A 34-year-old woman presents to her primary care physician with a lump on the front of her neck, at the midline. A fine-needle biopsy reveals papillary thyroid cancer. The patient elects to have a total thyroidectomy. The surgery is uneventful, but the patient finds that after surgery her voice has changed, and is now hoarse and raspy. On laryngoscopy, it is noted that the right vocal cord does not move.
The most likely damaged structure courses around which of the following structures?

A.Ligamentum arteriosum
B.Right brachiocephalic artery
C.Right subclavian artery
D.Right superior thyroid artery
E.Right suprascapular artery

My answer is CC.

This is Right recurrent laryngeal nerve injury which loops around rt Subclavian.
It supplies all intrinsic muscles of larynx except cricothyroid.

Thanks for the question.
