Marginal artery of drummond

(Sir David Drummond, 1852 - 1932, English physician), the vessel which is closest to and which parallels the wall of the large intestine from which the vasa recta arise. It is made up by the main trunks of, and the arcades arising from, the ileocolic artery, right colic artery, middle colic artery and left colic artery. It may be absent or tenuous at the splenic flexure.
