Reflect the greater omentum superiorly and identify the structures which it partially covers. On the right side of the abdominal cavity, identify: the cecum and the ascending colon. The transverse colon spans horizontally across the abdominal cavity and is attached to the greater omentum. On the left side, observe the sigmoid colon. Usually the descending colon is covered by the coils of jejunum and ileum located in the central region of abdominal cavity.
