Branches r Sympathetic fibres are distributed to the skin with each of the thoracic spinal nerves. r Postganglionic fibres from T1–5 are distributed to the thoracic viscera – the heart and the great vessels, the lungs and the oesophagus. r Preganglionic fibres from T5–12 form the splanchnic nerves. These pierce the crura of the diaphragm and pass to the coeliac and renal ganglia, from which they are relayed as postganglionic fibres to the abdominal viscera (cf. fibres to the suprarenal medulla which are preganglionic).

In the presence of hypoxia, for example in premature babies with respiratory distress syndrome, PGE1 is produced locally and prevents the ductus arteriosus from closing. The high pulmonary vascular resistance causes blood to shunt through the ductus arteriosus into the aorta, which further increases hypoxia. Indomethacin, which interferes with the production of prostaglandin synthetase, may cause the duct to close, but ultimately surgical closure may be necessary. r Coarctation of the aorta. This is a congenital narrowing of the aorta in the region of the ductus arteriosus.
