Lower intercostal nerves-pain sensation originating from peritoneal irritation by gastric contents in the lesser sac is carried by lower intercostals nerves. the vagus nerves carry sensory fibers associated with reflexes in the gastrointestinal (gi) tract. the greater splanchnic nerves and white rami cornmunicantes carry pain (general visceral afferent [gva]) fibers from the wall of the stomach and other areas of the gi tract. the gray rami communicantes contains no sensory fibers but containsympathetic postganglionic fibers.
