The division of the large intestine extending from the cecum to the rectum. The ascending c. (c. ascendens) runs upward on the right of the abdomen to the under surface of the liver, where, at the hepatic flexure (flexura coli dextra), it becomes transverse (c. transversum) and crosses the abdomen, beneath the liver and stomach, to the spleen, where, at the splenic flexure (flexura coli sinistra) it turns downward (c. descendens) and descends on the left side of the abdomen to a point opposite the crest of the ilium; here it makes several turns, roughly resembling the letter S (c. sigmoideum, sigmoid flexure) and terminates in the rectum.
