PARIETAL PERITONEUM

3

Investing organs/viscera

INSENSITIVE to touch, heat, cold and stimulated primarily by stretching

PAIN IS POORLY LOCALIZED

Peritoneum and viscera are located in the abdominopelvic cavity

VISCERAL PERITONEUM

4

Relationship of the viscera to the peritoneum

INTRAPERITONEAL ORGANS

EXTRAPERITONEAL, RETROPERITONEAL AND SUBPERITONEAL

5

Covered with visceral peritoneum

Intrapeironeal organs

6

Outside, external or posterior to the parietal peritoneum

Partially covered with peritoneum (usually on one surface)
