Gray's subject #220 987

The renal plexus is formed by filaments from the celiac plexus, the aorticorenal ganglion, and the aortic plexus .

It is joined also by the least splanchnic nerve.

The nerves from these sources, fifteen or twenty in number, have a few ganglia developed upon them.

They accompany the branches of the renal artery into the kidney; some filaments are distributed to the spermatic plexus and, on the right side, to the inferior vena cava.
