Middle Rectal Plexus

The middle rectal plexus is a nerve plexus which supplies the middle part of the rectum.

It is a branch of the inferior hypogastric plexus.

The middle rectal plexus was previously referred to by anatomists as Copeland's web, due to its identification by biologist Charles Copeland and the design of his anatomical drawings in the early 1900s.

Famous quotes containing the word middle:

    In the middle of the night, as indeed each time that we lay on the shore of a lake, we heard the voice of the loon, loud and distinct, from far over the lake. It is a very wild sound, quite in keeping with the place and the circumstances of the traveler, and very unlike the voice of a bird. I could lie awake for hours listening to it, it is so thrilling.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
