The jejunoileum begins at the duodenojejunal angle about 5 cm. to the left of the midplane at the level of the first lumbar vertebra, and ends at the ileocolic valve about 3 cm. to the right of the midplane over the right end of the disc between the fourth and fifth lumbar vertebrae. The coils of this part of the intestine are so variable in position and relations that they are not represented in the projections. The mesentery is attached to the posterior body wall along a line nearly straight from the duodenojejunal angle to the ileocolic valve. In the upper half this attachment is to the front of the fourth portion of the duodenum. In the lower half it'is at first attached to the aorta, then to the vena cava inferior and right common iliac vessels.

The latter is anterior and to the right of the disc between the fourth and fifth lumbar vertebrae, about 1 cm. below a line connecting the highest points of the crests of the ilia and 3 or 4 cm. above a line connecting the anterior superior iliac spines.
