Vermiform Appendix - Retrocecal

One of a series of three models representing the different locations in which the vermiform appendix is to be found. Trainees will move on from the Surgical Dissection Pads (Product Nos. 50118 and 50114) to this progressive 3 stage appendices suite:

Normal represents 32% of locations  

Post-ileal represents 1% of locations  

Retrocecal represents 64% of locations  

The model has the additional feature of a simulated peptic ulcer, for closure using peritoneum & mesentry.



  • The variations available in the range of appendices (see Normal Product No. 50122 and Post-ileal Product No. 50123) provide increased levels of difficulty


  • Convincing fluid filled vessels, cecum contents and tissues encourage correct handling of tissue


  • Vessel incorporates a luer lock to which the Mock Blood Giving Set (Product No. 60651) may be attached to provide fluid flow for the appendicular artery. Use Mock Blood - Arterial (250ml) (Product No. 60653)
  • Ideal for training course requirements; the model is designed for swift attachment to and removal from the Soft Tissue Retaining Set (Product No. 50151)
