Anterior neck pain of scarring origin

We will first recall the notion of cicatricial neuropathy.

The causes of anterior cervical pain of scarring origin are (non-exhaustive):

  • Cervical spine surgery:
  • Thyroid and parathyroid surgery
  • Cervical lymph node dissection
  • Parotid surgery
  • Carotid surgery
  • ENT cancer surgery (pending)
  • Placement or removal of an implantable port (SIEV)
  • Placement of central venous line by jugular approach
  • Loco-regional anesthesia of the brachial plexus by cervical approach (BIS, ultrasound-guided)

If in doubt, if the symptoms do not correspond, you can refer to the guide to muscle pain.
