Laparoscopic diverticulectomy or laparoscopic-assisted resection of symptomatic Meckel diverticulum in children? A systematic review.

Pediatr Surg Int 2020 Aug 20;36(8):869-874. Epub 2020 May 20.

Department of Paediatric Surgery, Level 3 CSB, Wellington Children's Hospital, Riddiford St, Newtown, Wellington, 6021, New Zealand.

Recent reports have recommended laparoscopic diverticulectomy for symptomatic Meckel diverticulum (MD) rather than laparoscopic-assisted extracorporeal resection. This technique may risk leaving residual ectopic mucosa leading to complications. This systematic review attempts to quantify the relative risks of both approaches. Read More

Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point, 14000 Fivay Road, Hudson, FL 34667, USA.

Meckel's diverticulum is a remnant of the omphalomesenteric duct, found only in approximately 2% of the population. Although Meckel's diverticulum is often diagnosed in nonsymptomatic patients as incidental radiologic findings, complications of Meckel's diverticulum can also be seen on radiologic evaluation. We present a rare care of perforated Meckel's diverticulum in a geriatric patient demonstrated on contrast computed tomography. Read More

Breast and General Surgery, Civil Hospital, Dow University of Health Sciences, Karachi, PAK.

Meckel's diverticulum (MD), a congenital abnormality of the gastrointestinal tract, is usually found in the pediatric population younger than two years of age; hence, its incidence in adults is rare. Although MD is mostly clinically silent, in adults, it may present with intestinal obstruction and diverticulitis. The complications of MD include hemorrhage, perforation, enterolith formation, torsion, Littre's hernia, ulceration and neoplasm. Read More

Esophageal Ulcer Due to Ectopic Pancreatic Tissue: A Case Report.

Middle East J Dig Dis 2020 Jan;12(1):45-47

Fellow of Gastroenterology, Ahvaz Jundishapur University of Medical Science Ahvaz, Iran.

Heterotopic pancreatic tissue, known as pancreatic rest, is a pancreatic tissue that lacks anatomic and vascular continuity with the main body of the pancreas. Common locations for this tissue include the stomach, duodenum, jejunum, Meckel diverticulum, and ileum. In this report, we present a case of a patient whose pancreatic rest was diagnosed primarily during the investigation of dysphagia with solid foods and it was located in the mid esophagus as an unusual location.

Department of Radiology, University of Yamanashi, Chuo-shi, Yamanashi, Japan.

Meckel diverticulum is the most common and well-known congenital anomaly of the digestive system. Although most cases are asymptomatic, Meckel diverticulum can have a variety of complications, including gastrointestinal bleeding as a result of peptic ulceration, diverticulitis, and small bowel obstruction. Although the radiologic findings of these complications have been reported, they are difficult to diagnose preoperatively because Meckel diverticulum is a small entity. Read More

Meckel diverticulum: one pathology, different clinical presentations. A report of two cases.

G Chir 2019 Sep-Oct;40(5):437-440

Meckel diverticulum is the most prevalent congenital malformation of gastrointestinal tract and usually it remains asymptomaRomatic. Approximately in 25% of cases Meckel diverticulum comes to be symptomatic with various clinical presentations where lower gastrointestinal hemorrhage or intestinal obstruction represent the most frequent clinical outcome. In present paper two cases of complicated Meckel diverticulum in young patients are described; in both cases diagnosis was difficult and initially mistaken with other pathologies. Read More

We present the case of a 13-year-old boy with bleeding complications from a Meckel diverticulum (MD), which was scintigraphically confirmed. A first exploratory laparoscopy was unsuccessful in identifying the diverticulum. A new Tc-pertechnetate scintigraphy (including SPECT/CT), 3 years later, suggested the anatomical location and was helpful during the surgical exploration for the MD by radioguided surgery.

Meckel's diverticulum is the most common congenital malformation of the gastrointestinal tract, with its incidence estimated at 1-4% in the general population. In most cases Meckel's diverticulum is a latent, asymptomatic anomaly, but in some cases, it may lead to complications such as intestinal obstruction, bleeding and inflammation. The literature provides no precise recommendations for the management of accidentally diagnosed, unaffected Meckel's diverticulum. Read More

Division of Hematology and Oncology, George Washington University Cancer Center, Washington DC, USA.

Background: Meckel's diverticulum is the most common congenital anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract, resulting from incomplete obliteration of the omphalomesenteric duct in early fetal development. The diverticulum frequently contains ectopic gastrointestinal epithelial tissue, most commonly gastric or pancreatic. Adenocarcinoma can arise from either of these epithelia but is extremely rare, with less than 50 cases reported in the world literature. Read More
