  • The thyroid attaches to the trachea via a consolidation of connective tissue, referred to as the lateral suspensory ligament or Berry's ligament. This ligament connects each of the thyroid lobes to the trachea.
    The thyroid gland is located beside the trachea, just below the larynx. It has two lobes, which are flat and oval, one on each side of the trachea, joined by an isthmus across the front of the trachea. The thyroid isthmus lies about halfway between the thyroid cartilage (the Adam's apple) and the sternal notch.
