The ansa cervicalis (or ansa hypoglossi in older literature) is a loop of nerves that are part of the cervical plexus.

Branches from the ansa cervicalis innervate the sternohyoid muscle, sternothyroid muscle, and the inferior belly of the omohyoid muscle.

Roots[edit | edit source]

Two roots make up the ansa cervicalis.
