Nerve: Suprarenal plexus

The celiac ganglia with the sympathetic plexuses of the abdominal viscera radiating from the ganglia. (Suprarenal plexus labeled at upper right.)
Latin plexus suprarenalis
Gray's subject #220 987

The suprarenal plexus is formed by branches from the celiac plexus, from the celiac ganglion, and from the phrenic and greater splanchnic nerves, a ganglion being formed at the point of junction with the latter nerve.

The plexus supplies the suprarenal gland, being distributed chiefly to its medullary portion; its branches are remarkable for their large size in comparison with that of the organ they supply.
