is the component part of the celiac plexus for two celiac ganglia make up the
celiac plexus. The ganglion is arranged in two divisions- the upper is the
celiac ganglion proper while the lower is called the aorticorenal ganglion. The
right ganglion is placed behind the inferior vena cava and the left is behind
the splenic vessels. It receives all the branches entering the celiac plexus
except that the lesser and least splanchnic nerves enter the aorticorenal
ganglion while the greater splanchnic nerve enter the upper ganglion, which is
the celiac ganglion proper.
It is formed, just as for celiac plexus,
by the following
Dorsal nucleus of vagus, inferior salivatory nucleus, all of the upper medulla
in the vagal trigone of rhomboid fossa and T5-T12 spinal cord segments.
