All of the following structures pass through the superior aperture of thorax except (AIIMS May 2012)
|A||Right recurrent laryngeal nerve|
|B||Left common carotid artery|
|C||Left sympathetic trunk|
1. The left recurrent laryngeal nerve has a long course which extends down into the chest and loops under the arch of the aorta to return to the larynx
2. The right recurrent laryngeal nerve is shorter and loops around the subclavian artery in the neck itself i.e., doesn’t enter thoracic aperture.
