Study of Ansa Subclavia: Anatomy, Functions and Repercussions

June 23, 2022 Medical Science 0

A nerve fibre known as the ansa subclavia connects the middle and inferior cervical ganglions. In order to connect the inferior cervical ganglion, the cord from the middle cervical ganglion bends inferiorly the first segment of the subclavian artery medial to the vertebral artery. From rats, guinea pigs, the porcine species, and dogs to humans, the Ansa subclavia is developmentally retained and carried over. Animal models frequently undergo electrical stimulation of the Ansa subclavia to modify the stimulatory cardiac sympathetic input during physiological research. Only two publications documenting the anatomy of the Ansa subclavia were located in a thorough search of English-language literature. The purpose of this chapter is to gather knowledge about the general/applied anatomy, functions, and importance of the ansa subclavia.
