  • Oh crap.... I forgot.. You asked about the stomach.

    The left end of the stomach, beyond the entrance of the esophagus is named the Great Cul-de-sac and the slightly dilated part of the convex border, towards the left end of the stomach is called the lesser cul-de-sac.

  • Veterinary Dictionary: cul-de-sac
    Home > Library > Animal Life > Veterinary Dictionary[Fr.] a blind pouch.

    Douglas’ c. — a sac or recess formed by a fold of the peritoneum dipping down between the rectum and the uterus. Called also rectouterine excavation or pouch.

  • A culdesac (or an example of) is the Synovial Membrane. Which is part of the knee. Sort of between the knee cap and the large femur bone. Is that what you're asking?
