Caption: Healthy ileocaecal valve, endoscope view. This valve marks the boundary between the ileum of the small intestine and the caecum, the pouch that connects the ileum to the colon (large intestine). The small intestine is mainly responsible for absorbing nutrients from food, whereas the colon absorbs water and passes the resulting waste to the rectum for excretion. This valve acts as a sphincter, preventing reflux from the colon into the ileum.
