Prostatic plexus (nervous)
The Prostatic Plexus is continued from the lower part of the pelvic plexus.
Additional recommended knowledge
The nerves composing it are of large size.
They are distributed to the prostate vesiculæ seminales and the corpora cavernosa of the penis and urethra.
The nerves supplying the corpora cavernosa consist of two sets, the lesser and greater cavernous nerves, which arise from the forepart of the prostatic plexus, and, after joining with branches from the pudendal nerve, pass forward beneath the public arch.
