It was determined that some branches ramified from middle cervical ganglion were connected with the vagus nerve (Figure 1-k) and caudal branch (Fig.
2009) have stated that the cervicothoracic ganglion consist of combination of caudal cervical ganglion and one or more thoracic ganglia.
The inferior cervical ganglion is constant, usually located in front of the 7th cervical vertebra and the 1st thoracic vertebra, fused with the first thoracic ganglion forming an irregular mass con el primer (spider-like shape).
In about 80% of the population this inferior cervical ganglion fuses with the first thoracic ganglion to form a single structure, the cervical-thoracic ganglion or stellate ganglion.
