This section passes through the ileum (40, 41, 42), cervical canal of the uterus (34), right ovary (16), ilium (12, 39), and sacral hiatus (24).

At this level, the ureters (14, 31) flank the right ovary (16) and the uterus (34). The round ligament (37) of the left side is seen leaving the uterus.

All of the component parts are converging to form the sciatic nerve (19, 28). The sciatic nerve is usually formed from the fourth and fifth lumbar and first, second, and third sacral nerves.
