Hi I'm Brian with ericksontutoring.blogspot.com. Today we are going to discuss the organs in the lower left quadrant of the human body or I guess the human abdomen would be more specific. So the lower quadrant holds a couple of major organs. First you have your small intestine, part of it, not the whole thing and your small intestine is really where the vast majority of digestion happens so small intestine. Next you have the two parts of your colon and your colon is responsible for taking water and some other things out of the semi solid waste that is going eventually out of your body. In addition to the small intestine and the two parts of your colon that are in your lower left quadrant you have the left part of ureter which is responsible for transferring urine from your kidneys to your bladder so since you have two kidneys only the left kidney and thus your left ureter is in the left quadrant. In addition if you have a distended bladder that's going to move in to your left quadrant, the lower left quadrant to be specific and finally if you are referring to a female there are several parts of the female reproductive tract, fallopian tubes, ovary and things like that that are also located in the lower left quadrant. So this has been brief discussion of some of the major organs you find in the lower left quadrant of the human abdomen.
