Figure 4: During dissection down the midline, the third occipital nerve may be encountered. This nerve can be avulsed using hemostat-assisted traction neurectomy. To avoid confusing a large third occipital nerve with the GON, it is important to pay attention to its depth in relation to the trapezius fascia and semispinalis capitis muscle
