Greater splanchnic nerve-the greater splanchnic nerve carries pain fibers from the upper gastrointestinal (gi) tract. neither the ventral roots of the spinal nerves nor the gray rami corn municantescontain sensory nerve fibers. the vagus nerve contains sensory fibers associated with reflexes, but it does not contain pain fibers. the lower intercostals nerves carry general somatic afferent (gsa)pain fibers from the diaphragm, abdominal wall, and peritoneum but not general visceral afferent (gva) pain fibers from the gi tract.
