Dissecting the cervical vertebral column usually is presumed in the course of a routine autopsy to be difficult and time-consuming. Additionally, most techniques described in the literature lead to extensive mutilation of the corpse. We present a method which can be performed quickly and is learned easily. The major advantage of our technique is that the integrity of the corpse, in particular of the facial surface, is maintained.
