We here report the case of a 6-month female infant, admitted with painful irreducible medkel swelling. The diagnosis of strangled umbilical hernia was made. Meckel inflammatory diverticulum in the hernial sac was detected intraoperatively.

Doença de Whipple

The patient underwent wedge resection of the diverticulum followed by the closure of the intestinal gap using continuous suture and parietal repair Covered perforation of Meckel’s diverticulum ulcer to transverse colon: Meckel’s diverticulum represents a remnant of the proximal end of the diverticuli duct, which constitutes a connection between the middle intestine and the vitelline vesicle.

It is the most common congenital anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract and is found in approximately 0. Complications such as hemorrhage, bowel obstruction, inflammation, perforation, intussusception, volvulus and malignant transformation develop in only Meckel’s diverticulum diagnosis by video capsule endoscopy: A case report and review of literature. Meckel’s diverticulum MD occurs predominantly in children and adolescents.

It is rarely diagnosed in adults. Preoperative diagnosis is difficult due to diverticlo sensitivity of the radiological imaging studies. The role of video capsule endoscopy VCE in the diagnosis of MD is unknown, and the endoscopic patterns are not defined. We will describe four of our cases of MD evaluated with VCE and make a review of the literature focusing on the endoscopic characteristics.

We present four cases of MD confirmed by surgery A hernia containing Meckel’s diverticulum is called a Littre’s Hernia. It’s a rare entity and its diagnosis is often incidental during routine hernia mecjel surgery. The objective of this study is the evaluation of the current evidence on Littre’s hernias regarding their clinical presentation and optimal treatment approach.

PubMed and Cochrane bibliographical databases were searched from the beginning of time last search: August 1st, for studies reporting on Littre’s hernias in adult population Demographic Study and Management of Colonic Atresia: Single-Center Experience with Review of Literature.

The aim of this study is to highlight the rarity of this disorder and its associated anomalies and our objective was to review our experience in the management of colonic atresia CA with respect to staged surgery versus one-step procedure for a better outcome of the disease.

A randomized, controlled, single-center study conducted over a period of 4 years from October to Nine cases were operated for CA of which three underwent primary anastomosis and six underwent initial colostomy followed by definitive surgery The patient was admitted to the hospital with incomplete small bowel obstruction, abdominal pain and massive rectal bleeding.


Surprisingly, pre-operative abdominal USG revealed inhomogeneous target-like mass in the right lower abdominal quadrant as intussusception with an intraluminal polypoid lesion Meckel’s diverticulum MD is common congenital abnormality of gastrointestinal tract, only about 6. A smaller minority develop potential fatal complications such as hemorrhage, perforation, abscess, and bowel obstruction.

A year-old boy with history of appendicitis was admitted due to worsening abdominal pain and nausea for 1 day. The physical examination showed the abdomen was soft, with the diffuse tenderness to palpation and voluntary guarding Spontaneous perforation of Meckel’s diverticulum in an adult female with literature review. Perforated Meckel’s diverticulum is a rare complication of an already rare disease process, which often mimics a perforated appendix on presentation and diagnosis.

The majority of case reports for perforation involve either a foreign body or fecalith.

We report the case of a year-old female who initially presented at another institution with signs and symptoms of acute appendicitis and underwent appendectomy with a drain left in place A rare complication in a liver transplant patient: Meckel diverticulum perforation due to biliary stent.

Meckel’s diverticulum is the most common congenital lesion of the small intestine. The incidence varies between 0. Intestinal perforation due migrated stents is a very rare and life threatening complication. For this reason, our case has been identified as the first case seen in the literature A year retrospective study of clinical assessment and computed tomography diagnosis.

Intussusception in adults often remains unrecognized. Our aim was to report our experience with this entity to determine the usefulness of CT scan in its preoperative diagnosis. Two case reports and a review of the literature. Gastrointestinal surgeons seldom encounter inverted Meckel’s diverticulum in their clinical practice. We describe two cases of inverted Meckel’s diverticulum. If the patient has a disease-related complication such as intussusception, as with our first case, it can be easily detected.

However, if the patient has subacute or chronic symptoms, as with our second case, the diagnosis might be delayed. Regardless of the disease-related complication, intussusception of inverted Meckel’s diverticulum can be easily managed with laparoscopic single-port surgery A rare cause of acute abdomen: Isolated necrosis of the cecum. We would like to present the case of a year-old female patient with cecal necrosis, which is a rare cause of acute abdomen in elderly women and a variant of ischemic colitis.

The patient was admitted to our hospital with abdominal pain, anorexia, and nausea. Physical examination, laboratory parameters, and abdominal computed tomography revealed acute abdomen.

We operated the patient with an infra-umbilical midline incision. Considering the pain localized to the right lower quadrant, our initial diagnosis was acute appendicitis; however, we kept in mind other differential diagnoses as well This usually occurs with clinical signs and symptoms of acute appendicitis in adults.

The diagnosis requires a high index of suspicion divericulo is based on complementary tests in most cases mainly CT. Presentation modes in adults.

Complicated Meckel’s diverticulum represents a common etiology of acute abdomen in children. However, this condition is less frequent in adults.


diagnosis meckel diverticulum

We reviewed the records divertivulo adult patients who underwent mecekl surgical removal of complicated Meckel’s diverticulum between and at 2 tertiary French medical centers.

We then analyzed the clinical characteristics, mode of presentation, and management for all patients. The Meckel’s diverticulum was resected in 37 patients 24 males and 13 females. The mean patient age was Significant bleeding from Meckel’s diverticulum after blunt abdominal trauma: Its main complications are perforation, obstruction, and bleeding.

A few studies have reported that blunt niod trauma may result in perforation or obstruction to Meckel’s diverticulum. This paper present what we believe to be the first reported case of significant intestinal bleeding from a Meckel’s diverticulum following blunt abdominal trauma 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.

Despite the progress in medical imaging, conventional abdominal computed tomography and endoscopy have limitations for the diagnosis of Meckel’s diverticulum Laparoscopic treatment of intestinal obstruction due to a vitelline diverriculo remnant and simultaneous appendicitis: The presence of a vitelline vascular remnant is rare, and definitive preoperative diagnosis is difficult.

We herein describe a case of intestinal obstruction caused by a vitelline vascular remnant with mild chronic appendicitis successfully diagnosed and treated with laparoscopic surgery.

A year-old male was admitted to our hospital with sudden-onset right lower abdominal pain and vomiting. A blood test on admission revealed slight leukocytosis Meckel’s Diverticulum in Crohn’s Disease Revisited: According diverticuulo anecdotal divertifulo in literature, encountering Meckel’s mmeckel in a patient with Crohn’s disease is not uncommon, but differentiating between the overlapping complications of Mickel’s diverticulum and the natural manifestations of Crohn’s disease can be challenging and may impact lifelong therapy.

In this report, diverticuloo present a case of Meckel’s diverticulitis in a patient with stricturing ileocolonic Crohn’s disease.

A year-old male has been suffering from recurrent bouts of abdominal pain and diarrhea which were initially thought to be due to recurrent flares of Crohn’s disease Heterotopic pancreatic tissue in the gallbladder.

Heterotopic pancreas is defined as aberrantly located pancreatic tissue without anatomical, vascular, or neural connection to the pancreas. Usual sites include the stomach, duodenum, jejunum, and spleen; in rare cases, heterotopic pancreas can be found in the lungs, gallbladder, Meckel’s diverticulum, and the mediastinum.

In most cases, it is an insignificant, incidental finding. Pre-operative diagnosis is not possible, and histopathological examination is mandatory for establishing a definite diagnosis. Less than 40 cases of heterotopic mecekl in the gallbladder have been reported worldwide Sign in or create an account to discover new knowledge that matter to you.
