left phrenic nerve (probe)
Back
Forward
Recall that the left phrenic nerve (probe) descends across the left left of the aortic arch and along the left border of the heart, anterior to the root of the left lung.
The right phrenic nerve, also seen in this image, normally runs along the right side of the SVC and the right atrium, anterior to the root of the right lung (it has been shifted slightly rightward in this image).
