Right paracolic gutter

Last revised by Craig Hacking on 8 Apr 2020

The right paracolic gutter is a component of the right inframesocolic space continuous superiorly with the right subhepatic and right subphrenic spaces. It is larger than the left paracolic gutter, which is partially separated from the left subphrenic spaces by the phrenicocolic ligament. Both paracolic spaces are in continuity with the pelvic peritoneal spaces.
