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).
