Prevertebral ganglia (or collateral ganglia,[1] or preaortic ganglia[2]) are sympathetic ganglia which lie between the sympathetic chain and the organ of supply.

Contents

Function

They are the site of relay of the postganglionic sympathetic fibres that supply abdominal and pelvic viscera.

Examples

These include the celiac ganglia (which can include the aorticorenal ganglion), superior mesenteric ganglia, and inferior mesenteric ganglia.[3]
