What organs are located in the left iliac region?
Have you ever wondered what lies beneath your left abdominal area, also known as the iliac region? Fear not my friend, for I am here to enlighten you on this topic! Brace yourself for a journey through the left iliac region and discover each organ that resides there.
Before We Begin: Where is the Left Iliac Region?
Before we dive into discussing all of the organs residing within your left iliac region, let’s first establish where exactly it is located. The iliac fossa, or commonly known as just an ilium, is found at either side of our lower abdomen – highly susceptible to exercise-induced cramping and getting hit by stray footballs during playground activities.
Since we know where it’s at now, rest assured that no one can catch you off-guard next time they ask “which side did it hurt again?”!
Small Intestine – One of Four Large Digestive Sections
The small intestine section consists of 3 parts: duodenum – jejune – ileum which connects with larger large intestines, generally being longer than its big brother but smaller in diameter (not too surprising though!) Imagine these three sections bunched up together like spaghetti on a fork ready fir digestion!
Around four meters long!, this looong layered-up marvel takes food from its bigger twin (small intestine) before further breaking down carbohydrates via pancreatic-alpha-amylase.
Make sure to remind everyone around how hard working those intestinal layers are when having some quality digestive banter over dinner tonight.
Spleen – A Handy Organ With Special Powers
As we head upwards towards our stomach, say helloooo to spleen- that squishy looking thing tucked near sticked near pancreas behind peritoneum lining shielding ab muscle wall; protecting us from minor traumas involving ribs. This organ is the largest one in our lymphatic system known, as your health guru will tell you, mostly for producing white blood cells which fight infections and viruses on daily basis.
Appendix – Filled with a Fluid-like Substance
As we venture closer to the lower abdomen itself, located at end of colon, small cylindrical-shaped appendix can be found – generally filled with amorphous fluid-like substances . The exact function of this little guy remains debatable in current medical research but it might have served some purpose way back when humans were hunters and gatherers.
Moral of the story? No organ or body part should ever find themselves redundant so lookout for them lil’ guys too!
