Pancreas Development of pancreas

Hello guys, Today i was reading some concepts about embryology of pancreas development.
Have bit doubt about it. SO would like to discuss with you all.
As i read pancreas development starts when gut tube protrudes 2 diverticulums on both dorsal and ventral mesentry sides but later the diverticulum of ventral side turns itself and comes towards dorsal mesentry side. Thats how a 2 headed pancreas become 1 headed.
But my question is- As these pancreatic diverticum are still surrounded by peritoneal cavity. Then why we call pancreas as an secondary retroperitoneal organ.
May be it just a simple explanation which certainly i am not able to think right now. So asking for help from other fella's.

Default Mind started working.

hahaha guys,
last night while sleeping i got the answer. Don't know is it completely right or not but i will manage to understand this by that concept.
During embryonic development foregut undergo rotation. During this rotation organs such as- Liver, lesser omentum, pylorus of stomach and duodenum moves to right and spleen, pancreas and greater omentum moves to left. May be by that rotation pancreas more towards periphery and become an retro-peritoneal organ.

lol.... good 1

but what i think is that....

the only thing that u really need to know from this topic is about which part of the pancreas is retroperitoneal and wich is True peritonial part.

The only part of the pancreas thats true peritonial part is - TAIL of the pancres.

rest all are retro-p.

and just know about the 2 pathology
n then wich has the main panct. duct.
