Source: WordNet 2.1
Ascending Colon: The ascending colon is a hollow tube that comprises the first portion of the colon. The ascending colon is located in the right side of the abdomen and is a part of the digestive system and the gastrointestinal tract. Digested food residue moves from the cecum of the large intestine into the ascending colon and is moved to the transverse colon through the action of peristalsis. The ascending colon helps to form feces and absorb water into the body.
Conditions that afflict the ascending colon include colon cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, bowel obstruction, gastroenteritis, and ulcerative colitis.
