LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE OF APPENDIX

 

This organ has numerous lymphatic vessels. At least 8-15 lymphatic vessels pass though the mesoappendix. They end in the superior and inferior groups of ileocolic nodes. The root of the appendix carries anterior and posterior lymphatic vessels which enter the anterior and posterior ileocolic nodes. The ileocolic nodes drain into the superior mesenteric nodes. The superior mesenteric nodes enter the celiac nodes. All the efferents pass into the intestinal lymph trunks, which then enter the cisterna chyli or the abdominal confluence of lymph trunks. The cisterna chyli drains into the thoracic duct.
