Langer deals with the anatomy of the stomach, small intestine, caecum
, and colon of most eutherian orders and suborders.
4 (A) Pyloric caecum
and (B, C, and D) mid-gut of size class III pirarucu (anterior, intermediate, and posterior segments--S1, S2, and S3, respectively) showing simple (arrows) and complex folds (arrowheads).
The rabbit (Oryctotagus cuniculus) caecum
represents 40% of the total digestive tract by weight and accounts for about two-thirds of fecal fiber digestion (MERINO & CARABANO, 1992); it is characterized by the presence of an abundant microbial community with wide diversity and complex interactions (RODRIGUEZ-ROMERO et al.
CT enteroclysis depicted the adenocarcinoma and lymphoma tumours as diffuse circumferential wall thickening involving the terminal ileum, the ileocecal junction and the proximal caecum
and the GIST as focal nodular lesions that was located in the small-bowel wall.
Sometimes it runs out to be gangrenous caecum
, ileocaecal tuberculosis, Crohn's disease, Meckle's diverticulum, non rotated gut, volvulus of caecum
, tubo ovarian mass, even ureteric stone.
However, relative weights of heart, gizzard, spleen, small intestine and caecum
, and relative lengths of small intestine and caecum
were remained unchanged among all the experimental groups (Table 5).
A gangrenous perforated duplication cyst of the caecum
with faecal peritonitis was found during an exploratory laparotomy.
A case report of a rare variant of Rapunzel syndrome, where ball of hairs in small bowel with its tail extending in caecum
and ascending colon causing acute small bowel obstruction, is reported in a 13-year-old girl.
Appendix could not be visualized, but intraperitoneal fat planes around caecum
showed increased echogenicity which suggested an inflammatory process.
They were recovered from the intestine, stomach and the pyloric caecum
were washed in 0.
0 cm, arising from medial aspect of caecum
, extending superio medially upto lower pole of right kidney with scattered foci of calcification in its wall.
While it may assume one of several orientations in relation to the caecum
, it is most commonly found behind the caecum
or ascending colon (75%), or descending along the pelvic brim (20%).
