The mesogastrium now pouches to form the great omentum and rapidly enlarges.
It is developed in the mesoblast of the mesogastrium, usually about the same time and in close connection with the pancreas.
The mesentery of the stomach, or mesogastrium, enlarges in Mammalia to form a peculiar sack known as the greater omentum.
After rotation of the stomach (Fig. 173) the mesogastrium loses its original sagittal direction.
In the view directly from in front the redundancy of the peritoneum forming the mesogastrium is shown in Figs. 176 and 177.
The mesogastrium, spleen and pancreas in the cat will clearly illustrate the process of human development above outlined.
The primitive hepatic duct is directed cephalad in the mesogastrium between the vitelline duct and the stomach (Fig. 101).
The external muscular and fibrous coats of the gall-bladder are developed from the mesoderm of the mesogastrium.
(c) Development of the pancreas and spleen in connection with the mesogastrium.
