Abstract—The vermiform appendix is a narrow, worm-like tubular structure, situated in the right iliac fossa. Appendix being a fairly vascular organ is supplied by the branches of superior mesenteric artery, either via ileocolic or right colic branches. The origin of appendicular artery and presence of accessory appendicular arteries is extremely varied. Methodology: 50 formalin fixed specimens of appendix, were studied by dissection method in adult human cadavers. Results: The appendicular artery was derived from ileocolic artery in all specimens. In 33 specimens (64%), the appendicular artery originated from inferior division of ileocolic artery. In 16 specimens (32%) directly from the trunk of ileocolic artery. In only one specimen (2%), the appendicular artery is originated from posterior cecal branch of inferior division of ileocolic artery. 

Index Terms—vermiform appendix, blood supply, accessory appendicular arteries, laparoscopic appendicectomy
