The Blind Gut, so called from its being open at one end only. That portion of the intestinal canal which is seated between the termination of the ileum and commencement of the colon; and which fills, almost wholly, the right iliac fossa; where the peritoneum retains it immovably. Its length is about three or four fingers' breadth. The Ileo-caecal valve or Valve of Bauhin shuts off all communication between it and the ileum; and the Appendix vermiformis coeci is attached to it.
