Anatomical terms of neuroanatomy

The superior gastric plexus (gastric or coronary plexus) accompanies the left gastric artery along the lesser curvature of the stomach, and joins with branches from the left vagus nerve.

The term "inferior gastric plexus" is sometimes used to describe a continuation of the hepatic plexus.
