The superior hypogastric plexus (in older texts, hypogastric plexus or presacral nerve) is a plexus of nerves situated on the vertebral bodies below the bifurcation of the aorta.

StructureEdit

The superior hypogastric plexus is situated in front of the last lumbar vertebra and the promontory of the sacrum, between the two common iliac arteries, and is formed by the union of numerous filaments, which descend on either side from the aortic plexus, and from the lumbar splanchnic nerves; it divides, below, into two lateral portions which travel inferiorly as the so-called hypogastric nerves, which end as the inferior hypogastric plexus.
