Can anyone tell me what the Omentium (spelling?) is?
Thanks in advance for your post.
God Bless You,

From what I was able to gather from my doc, this site & just putting the word into search box of internet like Google, it is a fatty piece of tissue that hangs off the colon.

Omentum: A sheet of fat that is covered by peritoneum. The greater omentum is attached to the bottom edge of the stomach, and hangs down in front of the intestines. Its other edge is attached to the transverse colon. The lesser omentum is attached to the top edge of the stomach, and extends to the undersurface of the liver.

domina and norma, thank you very much for your posts. I truly appreciate it. I tried to search for it in the Merck manuel but nothing came up. That's why I love this site, someone always has the answer to any question. Thank you again. You are in my prayers.
God Bless You,
deb
