The greater omentum begins as an extended fold of the dorsal mesogastrium that continues to grow and extend down into the peritoneal cavity and eventually lies anterior to the small intestines. This fold of mesentery will also fuse to form a single sheet.
A peritoneal fold of splanchnic mesoderm extending from the greater curvature of the stomach and hanging ventrally down "like an apron" in the peritoneal cavity over the small intestine. It forms initially in the embryo and fetus as a loop of the dorsal mesentery, which later fuses to form a single sheet attached to the posterior body wall. The lesser omentum is a smaller ventral peritoneal fold extending from lesser curvature of the stomach to liver.
