Figure 1: Barium enema of the patient with functional constipation (a) and the scheme to it (b). A significant portion of the extended and elongated sigmoid colon is located to the right of the midline (black line) and it is partially superimposed on the cecum. The configuration (red line) of the sigmoid colon differs from the ascending colon configuration. On Figures 2 and 3, it is mistakenly taken as the right half of the colon. Thus, the left half of the colon is in the right half of the abdomen
