Belly, alvus, venter, the body cavity bounded by the diaphragm above and the pelvis below. (Some anatomists include in the abdomen all down to the pelvic floor.) It is lined by a serous membrane, the peritoneum, which also invests the contained viscera. It contains the greater part of the organs of digestion and also the spleen; the kidneys lie behind the peritoneum and are therefore outside the abdominal cavity. The abdomen is divided by arbitrary planes into nine regions; see abdominal regions.

The belly; the largest of the great visceral cavities of the body, bounded above by the diaphragm, below by the floor of the pelvis, in front by the fasciae and muscles and partly by the ribs, and behind by the spine, ribs, fasciae, and muscles. It is lined with peritoneum and is divided into the abdomen proper, above, and the pelvic cavity, below.
