Caecal Folds and Fossae
The caecal folds and fossae. In A, the caecum is viewed from the front; the mesentery of the appendix is distinct, and is attached above to the under surface of the portion of the mesentery going to the end of the ileum. In B, the caecum is turned upwards to show a retrocaecal fossa, which lies behind it and the beginning of the ascending colon.
