Ascending colon

German: Colon ascendens

1 Definition

The ascending colon is the part of the colon (colon) which is located between the caecum and the hepatic flexure (flexura coli dextra). It is not prominently located retroperitoneal.

2 Anatomy

The lumen of the ascending colon is smaller than that of the caecum, from which this part of the colon originates without having transition points. The ascending colon rises from the caecum almost vertically upward to the undersurface of the right liver lobe, where it leaves a flat indentation to the right of the gall bladder, ie. the impressio colica. Here, the ascending colon goes over into a sharp bend, the flexura coli dextra, into the colon transversum.
