Vermiform appendix - Definition


Definition

The vermiform appendix, generally called the appendix, is a small hollow growth connected to the cecum. The appendix measures an average 9 cm. It is not indispensable to the organism, even if it can contain reserves of bacteria useful to the immune system. It is common for the appendix to become inflamed, causing appendicitis, and to need surgical intervention, or an appendectomy. This removal of the appendix does not have consequences for the health of an individual.
