    The colon is about 1.5 m long and commences where the small intestine opens into the cecum. The cecum is at the level of and inferior to the ileocecal valve, has its own mesentery (→ mobility) with the appendicular artery / vein (← ileocolic artery ← superior mesenteric artery) and is approx. 7 cm long. The vermiform appendix springs from the posteromedial wall of the cecum, directly inferior to the ileocecal valve in the taenia libera.
