Right Dorsal Displacement

A right dorsal displacement occurs when the large colon moves under or around the cecum, between it and the body wall. The pelvic flexure is usually located in the cranial abdomen. Motility disturbances and gas distension can lead to migration of the colon. The displacement causes kinking of the large colon, leading to further gas buildup and blockage of ingesta.
