Mesoappendix

The mesoappendix is a fold of peritoneum around the vermiform appendix and one of the four mesenteries in the abdominal cavity.

It is attached to the lower end of the small bowel mesentery, close to the ileocaecal junction. It usually extends to the tip of the appendix and sometimes suspends the caecum. It contains the appendicular artery and vein in its free wall.
