Greater Splanchnic Nerve
preganglionic fibers of the Greater Splanchnic
nerve emerge from the medial aspect of T5 through T9 ganglia or intervening
portions of the trunk. Contributions from these levels come off singly or in
combination to form a large nerve trunk, which descends along the anterolateral
aspect of the vertebral column. It variably perforates the crus of the diaphragm
to terminate in the celiac ganglion. The postganglionic fibers extend to the
stomach, liver, spleen, and kidney.
