Anatomical Positions of Vermiform Appendix in Bangladeshi People
AbstractThe study was done to see the incidences of different anatomical positions of vermiform appendix in Bangladeshi people to increase the knowledge regarding variational anatomy in our population. A total 100 vermiform appendix (male-60, female-40) were observed in situ on cadaver of different age and sex during routine post mortem examination in the autopsy laboratory of Forensic Department of Mymensingh Medical College. This cross-sectional descriptive study was done by convenient sampling technique. For convenience of differentiating the incidences of different positions of vermiform appendix in relation to age and sex findings were classified and analyzed in four age groups (up to 20 year, 21 - 35 years, 36 - 55 years, 56 - 70 years) and in different sex. In the present study, the pelvic position of vermiform appendix was the most common position in all age groups and pelvic positions were found in 47% cases. The retrocaecal position was the second highest position (22%) and pre ileal position was the lowest (10%) in number. In respect to sex, incidences of pelvic variety of vermiform appendix were more in male than female. Key words: Vermiform appendix, anatomy, position J Bangladesh Soc Physiol. 2006 Dec;(1):5-9
