Maybe David has a point and "mesos" refers to both mesenteries and mesocolon:

... in which case the translation might be "mesentery" and "transverse and/or pelvic mesocolon"

Here's another definition of "mesos":

Las asas intestinales están ancladas a la pared posterior de la pared abdominal por repliegues peritoneales llamados mesos (mesenterio – intestino delgado; meso colon – intestino grueso)

sabanet.unisabana.edu.co/medicina/semestre3/inmunologia/morfo/Sistema%20Disgestivo%20Generalidades.ppt

and the following two quotes are taken from the same article:
El peritoneo es la membrana serosa que reviste la cavidad abdominal con su hoja parietal (peritoneo parietal). La hoja visceral (peritoneo visceral) recubre los órganos digestivos que se encuentran en el interior de la cavidad abdominal (órganos peritonizados), formando pliegues (mesos o mesenterios) de los que penden estos órganos. El yeyuno-ileón, el colon transverso y el colon sigmoide poseen estos pliegues.

estos mesos son el mesenterio y el mesocolon transverso y el mesocolon pélvico respectivamente.

That's as far as I have time to take it!
