Splanchnic, from a Greek word splēn, meaning organ, usually used to describe organs in the abdominal cavity (visceral organs). The term "splanchnologia" is used for grouping in Nomina Anatomica, but not in Terminologia Anatomica. It includes most of the structures usually considered "internal organs", but not all (for example, the heart is excluded.)
More specifically, it can also refer to:
- Splanchnic tissue
- An adjective describing visceral organs including the intestines.
- Splanchnic nerves
- Splanchnic mesoderm
- Splanchnic circulation - The circulation of the gastrointestinal tract originating at the celiac trunk, the inferior mesenteric artery and the superior mesenteric artery.
