Which of the following nerve fibers would be injured if the greater splanchnic nerves were severed (LQ)
|A||General somatic afferent (GSA) and preganglionic sympathetic fibers|
|B||General visceral afferent (GVA) and postganglionic sympathetic fibers|
|C||GVA and preganglionic sympathetic fibers|
|D||General somatic efferent (GSE) and postganglionic sympathetic fibers|
GVA and preganglionic sympathetic fibers
• Splanchnic (visceral) nerves are both motor (GVE) as well as sensory (GVA).
• They carry preganglionic-fibres (motor-GVE) from the lateral horns towards the collateral ganglia like- celiac ganglion, superior & inferior mesenteric ganglia
