The abdominal aortic plexus (aortic plexus) is formed by branches derived, on either side, from the celiac plexus and ganglia, and receives filaments from some of the lumbar ganglia.

It is situated upon the sides and front of the aorta, between the origins of the superior and inferior mesenteric arteries.

From this plexus arise part of the spermatic, the inferior mesenteric, and the hypogastric plexuses; it also distributes filaments to the inferior vena cava.

Within Hinduism and Sahaja Yoga the aortic plexus is considered to be the gross physical expression of the Swadisthan chakra.
