Bleeding Meckel Diverticulum: A Retrospective Analysis of Computed Tomography Enterography Findings.

J Comput Assist Tomogr 2019 Mar/Apr;43(2):220-227

Department of Radiology, Suzhou Hospital, Nanjing Medical University, Suzhou.

Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the computed tomography enterography (CTE) characteristics of bleeding Meckel diverticulum.

Methods: The CTE images of 35 patients with Meckel diverticulum and gastrointestinal bleeding were retrospectively evaluated.

Results: Meckel diverticulum was visualized in 33 of 35 patients and located in the right lower abdomen (20/33), midline lower abdomen (8/33), left lower abdomen (3/33), or paramedially near the umbilicus (2/33). Read More

[Meckel's diverticulum : state of the art].

Rev Med Liege 2018 Sep;73(9):474-479

Service de Pédiatrie, CHA Libramont, Belgique.

The persistence of the embryonic vitelline duct can lead to omphalomesenteric duct anomalies. A wide variety of anomalies, depending on the remnant segment and its degree of involution, may occur as a result of the omphalomesenteric duct failing to obliterate completely. The most frequent omphalomesenteric duct anomaly is Meckel's diverticulum, which is present in approximately 2-3 % of the population. Read More

The Coexistence of a Horseshoe Kidney and Meckel Diverticulum With Dramatic Mobility Revealed Through 99mTc Pertechnetate Imaging.

Clin Nucl Med 2018 Nov;43(11):825-827

From the Department of Nuclear Medicine, The First Affiliated Hospital, College of Medicine, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, People's Republic of China.

A previously healthy 11-year-old boy with intermittent abdominal pain and bloody stool underwent Meckel scintigraphy. On the initial images, there was a faint U-shaped activity in the mid-abdominal region, which gradually faded and evolved into distinct foci of radiotracer accumulation in the later images. One of the foci changed its location during the study, suspected as moving Meckel diverticulum. Read More

Department of Surgery, Hitachi General Hospital, 2-1-1 Jonan-cho, Hitachi, Ibaraki, 317-0077, Japan.

While there have been numerous reports about colovesical fistulas and ruptured intestinal diverticula, there have been far fewer reports about vesicointestinal fistulas caused by Meckel's diverticula. Most Meckel's diverticula are asymptomatic. Furthermore, they seldom cause vesicointestinal fistulas, and the associated complications are non-specific. Read More

Meckel's diverticulum is a remnant of the proximal part of the vitellointestinal duct and is the most common congenital anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract. It may either remain asymptomatic or present with myriad of clinical presentations. Gastrointestinal bleeding is the most common presentation in children whereas it is intestinal obstruction in the case of adults. Read More

Bleeding meckel's diverticulum: A study of the accuracy of pertechnetate scintigraphy as a diagnostic tool.

Eur J Radiol 2017 Nov 14;96:27-30. Epub 2017 Sep 14.

Department of Radiology, Our Lady's Hospital for Sick Children, Crumlin, Dublin 12, Ireland. Electronic address:

Background: The reported accuracy of pertechnetate scintigraphy (Meckel scan) in investigating children with a bleeding Meckel's diverticulum has increased steadily since it was first introduced into clinical practice in 1970. Recent studies have indicated that the examination has a sensitivity of up to 94% and a specificity of up to 97% in this scenario. There have also been several misleading reviews from Departments of Surgery, suggesting that the Meckel scan has a poor predictive value, and should not be relied upon to exclude a bleeding Meckel's Diverticulum (MD).

Meckel scintigraphy with Tc-pertechnetate was performed in a 5-year-old boy to determine whether a Meckel diverticulum containing ectopic gastric mucosa caused bleeding. The images did not reveal focal activity characteristic of a Meckel diverticulum. Unexpectedly, activity in the tracheobronchial tree was visualized, consistent with aspiration of the radioactive saliva. Read More

J Radiol Case Rep 2017 Mar 31;11(3):22-29. Epub 2017 Mar 31.

Department of Radiology, Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, Santa Barbara, CA, USA.

A Meckel's diverticulum was diagnosed by mesenteric angiography in a 34 year-old patient who presented with hematochezia and dropping hemoglobin. The case demonstrates the challenges often encountered in workup of occult gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding, and shows that angiographic diagnosis of Meckel's diverticulum is possible, even in the absence of angiographic evidence of active extravasation. Our patient had a previous non-diagnostic workup including upper and lower endoscopy, videocapsulography, and Technetium-99m pertechnetate (Tc-99m) scintigraphy. Read More

Background: Meckel's diverticulum is the most common congenital malformation of the gastrointestinal tract, and it represents a persistent remnant of the omphalomesenteric duct. Although it mostly remains silent, its infrequent occurrence is mirrored by the paucity of large series of data on it in the literature. Hemorrhage, obstruction and inflammation are most common complications of Meckel's diverticulum. Read More

A 28-year-old man diagnosed with Charge syndrome and no history of NSAIDs ingestion was referred due to the presentation in the previous 24 h of melenic stools with a negative upper endoscopy. Physical examination was unremarkable, although laboratory tests showed anemia. On the second day, significant painless rectal bleeding and the decrease of hematocrit levels responding to blood transfusion were observed, so colonoscopy was recommended but completely rejected by the patient.

Heterotopic Pancreas: Histopathologic Features, Imaging Findings, and Complications.

Radiographics 2017 Mar-Apr;37(2):484-499

From the Department of Radiology, University of Utah, 30 North 1900 East, #1A71, Salt Lake City, UT 84132 (M.R., J.D.O., A.M.S.); Department of Radiology, Mayo Clinic, Scottsdale, Ariz (C.M.); Department of Radiology, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Ind (K.S.); and Department of Radiology, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Tex (K.M.E.).

Heterotopic pancreas is a congenital anomaly in which pancreatic tissue is anatomically separate from the main gland. The most common locations of this displacement include the upper gastrointestinal tract-specifically, the stomach, duodenum, and proximal jejunum. Less common sites are the esophagus, ileum, Meckel diverticulum, biliary tree, mesentery, and spleen. Read More

Laparoscopic treatment of hemorrhagic Meckel diverticulum after diagnosis with wireless capsule endoscopy and double-balloon enteroscopy.

Rev Esp Enferm Dig 2017 Apr;109(4):315

Wenzhou Central Hospital.

Meckel diverticulum (MD) is a common small intestinal malformation. The difficulty of MD with hemorrhage treatment lies in preoperative diagnosis. Wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE) and double-balloon enteroscopy (DBE) have been widely used to diagnose and treat diseases of the small intestine, but only rarely have they been used in combination to diagnose and treat bleeding MD.

Diagnosis of Bleeding Meckel's Diverticulum in Adults.

PLoS One 2016 14;11(9):e0162615. Epub 2016 Sep 14.

Department of Internal Medicine, Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Background And Aims: Various modalities have been used to diagnose Meckel's diverticulum (MD) in practice, but with their diagnostic accuracy deemed to be unsatisfactory for clinical practice. Moreover, the usefulness of these modalities has not been evaluated for the diagnosis of bleeding MD in adults, due to the relative rarity of this condition. Therefore, the aim of our multicenter study was to determine the most accurate modality for the preoperative diagnosis of bleeding MD in adults. Read More
