The appendiceal stump is usually buried or inverted into the caecum at surgery to prevent complications including leak, "stumpitis" and mucocoele. In this case a line of surgical staples has been used acroos the proximal appendix without inversion leaving a small segment of stump allowing a mucocoele to develop.
