Sympathetic trunk

Other Terms: Sympathetic chain, Truncus sympathicus, Tronc sympathique

Description

The sympathetic trunks are two bundles of nerve fibers that extend along the vertebral column from the base of the skull to the coccyx. They are connected to each spinal nerve by gray matter rami.
