Latin nervus hypogastricus

The hypogastric nerve is a term for the transition between the superior hypogastric plexus and the inferior hypogastric plexus.

Structure

The hypogastric nerve begins where the superior hypogastric plexus splits into a right and left plexus. Each of these divisions is considered a hypogastric nerve. The hypogastric nerve continues inferiorly on its respective side of the body, where it descends into the pelvis to form the inferior hypogastric plexus.
