Fig. 17. Relation of the upper part of the abdominal colon to the omental bursa after it has been turned to the left

The first figure is a schematic section down the left side of the abdomen, as along the line a. in fig. 16 or fig. 13, to show the relation of the upper part of the abdominal colon to the omental bursa after it has been turned to the left. The abdominal mesocolon is cut at m, and p is the body of the pancreas in the back wall of the bursa. The second figure shows how the adult condition can be reached from this: the elongating mesocolon fuses with the bursa to form the transverse mesocolon, below this it is fixed to the wall, and at its lower end may be free more or less for the iliac colon.
