The nervous ramifications coming from these ganglionar structures anastomose with those of the vagus nerve [97]. 1 Right Side of the Heart The nerves of the right side of the human heart, belonging to the right thoracic sympathetic chain, converge in the right stellate ganglion from which originates a thin right stellate cardiac nerve that is directed medially toward the superior vena cava and the aortic sulcus. From the middle cervical ganglion a right dorsolateral cardiac thoracic nerve also originates.

The molding of young fibroblasts of the central fibrous body and of young growing cells of the AVN and bundle of His includes cellular death and focal cellular degeneration that can have dangerous consequences [87]. It has been proposed that congenital AV block represents an excessive growth of collagen along the bundle of His, jeopardizing its connection with the AVN. However, since homeostasis between the AVN/bundle of His and the central fibrous body cells is reached only some months or years after birth, the hypothesis of “over development” to explain congenital AV block would require that the block appears initially in the postnatal period, while it is already detectable prenatally.

Indirect accessory pathways, connecting the atrium to the ventricle through an anatomicofunctional interposition of junctional tissue. They are subdivided into: - mediate pathways for distal “input” within the cardiac conduction system, known as atriofascicular James fibers. They come down from the atrium and enter the junctional area beyond the nodal AV site of impulse deceleration. - mediate pathways for “output”, known as Mahaim fibers. They originate from the AVN, from the bundle of His and/or from the bifurcation and anastomose early with the septal ventricular myocardium.
