Superior Hypogastric Plexus - Structure

Structure

The superior hypogastric plexus is situated around the abdominal aorta between the origin of the inferior mesenteric artery and the splitting of the abdominal aorta into the two common iliac arteries. It receives contributions from the two lower lumbar splanchnic nerves, which are branches of the ganglionated trunk (chain ganglia). This plexus continues down into the pelvis as the two pelvic nerves, which continue to form the inferior hypogastric plexus located within the pelvic basin. The inferior hypogastric plexus receives additional contributions from the sacral splanchnic branches of the ganglionated trunk and the pelvic splanchnic nerves from the anterior primary rami of S2-4.

Famous quotes containing the word structure:

    I really do inhabit a system in which words are capable of shaking the entire structure of government, where words can prove mightier than ten military divisions.
    Václav Havel (b. 1936)

    Just as a new scientific discovery manifests something that was already latent in the order of nature, and at the same time is logically related to the total structure of the existing science, so the new poem manifests something that was already latent in the order of words.
    Northrop Frye (b. 1912)

    When a house is tottering to its fall,
    The strain lies heaviest on the weakest part,
    One tiny crack throughout the structure spreads,
    And its own weight soon brings it toppling down.
    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)
