Vocalise patterns that involve bridging out of falsetto into full voice, particularly on /u/, which tends to have a lower laryngeal position, can be very helpful for developing the extrinsic stabilizing muscles (omohyoid, sternohyoid, sternothyroid).
Second, the connective tissue and sternohyoid muscles were gently spread to visualize the trachea.
The sternohyoid, thyrohyoid, and omohyoid muscles are divided along the inferior border of the hyoid bone and reflected downward, while the external thyroid perichondrium is incised along the superior border from the base of the cornu to the thyroid notch, and an inferiorly based thyroid perichondrial flap is created and dissected, exposing the superior half of the lamina (figure 2).
The underlying trachea was exposed by separating sternohyoid and sternocephalicus muscle.
The changes in upper airway diameter during respiration is thought to primarily result from increased activation (during inhalation) and decreased activation (during exhalation) of pharyngeal dilator muscles such as the geniohyoid, sternohyoid, genioglossus, and stylopharyngeus muscles.
The ventral midline incision was done on the neck; then, careful blunt dissection was performed within the triangle formed by the sternohyoid, digastric, and sternomastoid muscles; common carotid artery was exposed; and the silk suture was placed around the vessel.

Dissection was made between sternocleidomastoid and sternohyoid muscles parallel to the trachea.
Four-gland exploration and parathyroidectomy were performed and a portion of one gland was reimplanted in the left sternohyoid region.
