Figure 1: Principle of mucosa-coring salvage appendicectomy. (a) Sloughed-out appendicular stump is inseparably adherent to the friable cecal wall. Visible portion of the appendicular serosa is longitudinally incised (dotted line). (b) The mucosal tube is stripped out at the submucosal plane to complete appendicectomy, and the bivalve seromuscular cuff is left undisturbed
