Mesenteries are peritoneal parts that maintain the connection of some abdominopelvic organs to the body or the other organs. Simply put, they maintain the proper arrangement of organs in the abdominopelvic cavity. Also, they are the place of passage of blood vessels and nerves.
Not all abdominopelvic organs are covered by the peritoneum. Some of them are located behind the parietal peritoneum, therefore they are referred to as retroperitoneal. An example is the pancreas.
