The remainder of the ascending limb forms the ccum and appendix, the ascending and transverse colon.
It is seated principally in the epigastrium, in the line of the transverse colon, or it may involve the whole abdomen.
As to perforating wounds of the transverse colon and small intestine, I believe spontaneous recovery to be very rare.
The transverse colon, folded into several coils bound together by adhesion, occupies the upper left portion of the abdomen.
The greater omentum covered the intestines pretty thoroughly from the transverse colon almost to the pubis.
The great omentum has been divided along the line of adherence to the transverse colon.
The adhesion, which in the human subject fuses this layer with the transverse colon and mesocolon, does not occur in the monkey.
The great omentum is not yet adherent to the transverse colon and mesocolon except for a short distance on the extreme right.
(a) The omentum is non-adherent to the transverse colon and transverse mesocolon.
Tracing the omentum dorsad beyond the transverse colon and mesocolon the pancreas is reached.
