The posterior surface of the gut isretroperitoneal. The descending colon has fallen over to the left, so that the peri-toneum of the left side of its mesentery has fused with that of the abdominal wall, and the permanent serous covering of the posterior wall is derived from that of theright side of the original mesentery. This fusion ceases at the crest of the ilium, andthe sigmoid flexure retains at least a part of the original mesentery (Fig. 1478).
