BACKGROUND: Capsule Endoscopy (CE) has become the first-line tool to identify an underlying etiology for Obscure Gastrointestinal Bleeding (OGIB) in the small bowel (SB). This study aims to investigate the long-term outcome of patients with a negative CE. METHODS: Retrospective review of standardized application forms of all patients who underwent CE for OGIB at the Ghent University Hospital between 2002 and 2013. Follow-up data on patients with a negative CE result (n=263) were collected by contacting the referring physician...

Background and study aims Diagnosis of Meckel's diverticulum (MD) before surgery may be challenging; double-balloon endoscopy (DBE) facilitates identification of MD in the setting of a gastrointestinal bleeding; however, MD can be found incidentally without this condition. The purpose of this research was to determine specific characteristic of hemorrhagic MD and incidental MD at DBE. Patients and methods Ectopic gastric mucosa enclosed in the MD and/or ulceration were defined as "major findings"; ring-like scar surrounding the MD was defined as "minor finding"...

A 63-year-old man visited an emergency outpatient unit with the chief complaints of melena and lightheadedness. At the time of the visit, blood tests showed Hb of 4.3 g/dL, suggesting severe anemia, and he exhibited repeated melena, even after hospitalization. Small intestinal bleeding was suspected during endoscopic examination of the lower gastrointestinal tract, and abdominalCT examination suggested a 3.5 cm tumor-like lesion in the jejunum. He was diagnosed as having bleeding of a tumor in the small intestine and consequently underwent laparoscopic surgery...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to profile patients who undergo defecography, by age and gender, as well as to describe the main imaging and diagnostic findings in this population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective, descriptive study of 39 patients, conducted between January 2012 and February 2014. The patients were evaluated in terms of age, gender, and diagnosis. They were stratified by age, and continuous variables are expressed as mean ± standard deviation...

The real cause of intussusception is not fully understood and a variety of conditions have been associated with it (Meckel diverticulum, polyps, duplication cysts, parasites, Henoch-Schönlein purpura, cystic fibrosis, hemolytic-uremic syndrome and infectious gastroenteritis). Furthermore few European countries, following WHO recommendation to monitor baseline incidence of intussusception before implementation of immunization program for rotavirus, used intussusception rate as a baseline value to compare the same figures in the period before and after introduction of vaccination...

Meckel's diverticulum is the most common congenital abnormality of the small intestine that results from incomplete closure of the vitelline (omphalo-mesenteric) duct. This true diverticulum, ~2 ft from the ileocecal valve commonly found on the anti-mesenteric border of the ileum, is benign and majority asymptomatic. Diagnosis challenges arise when it became inflamed or presented in following ways, for example, haemorrhage (caused by ectopic pepsin-and hydrochloric acid-secreting gastric mucosa), intestinal obstruction (secondary to intussusception or volvulus) or the presence of diverticulum in the hernia sac (Littre's hernia)...

BACKGROUND: Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is the one of the most common congenital malformation of gastrointestinal tract and has varied clinical presentations. We are presenting here our 12-year experiences with MD in children at tertiary care hospital in North India. It highlights the fact that isolated gangrene of MD can occur, and it is associated with increased morbidity. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This retrospective study is conducted by analysing the medical records of the patients who were operated for MD in the last 12 years in paediatric surgery department at our hospital...

A 32-year-old man underwent wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE) (OMOM Capsule Endoscopy, Jinshan Science & Technology Company, Chongqing, China) for detecting obscure gastrointestinal bleeding 7.5 years ago. The result of WCE did not reveal any hemorrhagic focus, diverticulum or other abnormal changes of the gastrointestinal tract until its battery exhausted. The man then moved out from the area and lost to follow up without a report of capsule excretion. For confirming the diagnosis of recurrent melena and iron-deficiency anemia, the patient came to our clinical center...

INTRODUCTION: Meckel's diverticulum is the most common anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract, occurring in 1-3% of the general population. The most common complication of Meckel's diverticulum is intestinal obstruction. In this report, we describe a rare cause of intestinal obstruction due to Meckel's; the phytobezoar. After thorough literature review, the authors found about ten individual reports of the same topic. In all these cases, diagnosis was established intra-operatively. CASE PRESENTATION: A forty-seven-year old male presented to the emergency department with a one-day history of abdominal pain associated with vomiting and constipation...

Gastrointestinal bleeding from non-Meckel's small bowel diverticulosis is uncommon. Depending on the diverticulum's location, a patient's presentation can suggest either an upper or lower gastrointestinal source. We present two cases of bleeding from non-Meckel's small bowel diverticula. One patient was managed successfully with endoscopic therapy, and the second required surgical resection after two failed attempts at achieving hemostasis endoscopically.

Background. Malignant neoplasms arising in Meckel's diverticulum, a vitelline duct remnant, are rare yet well-documented. Case Presentation. A 53-year-old previously healthy female presented with an enlarging midline abdominal wall mass. A computed tomography scan revealed a mass involving the linea alba, bilateral rectus abdominis, and subcutaneous fat. Extensive clinical workup failed to demonstrate other lesions, except local and paratracheal/hilar lymphadenopathy. Histopathologic examination of the resected tumor demonstrated a spectrum of serous neoplasia including serous cystadenoma, papillary serous carcinoma with numerous Psammoma bodies, and a poorly differentiated component...

INTRODUCTION: The omphalomesenteric duct (OMD) or the vitelline duct (VD) is the embryonic structure connecting the vitelline sac to the primitive gut. It undergoes obliteration at 5-9 weeks of gestation. Failure of this duct to close, which occurs in approximately 2% of the population, can lead to various types of VD residual diseases. A persistent OMD remnant is pathological, and it typically presents in the pediatric population. Meckel diverticulum is the most common anomaly that results from failure of resorption of the OMD...

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal tumors of the GI tract, they have a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations, and a small proportion of them present as an acute abdomen due to obstruction, perforation, or hemoperitoneum. We present a case of a perforated GIST of the Meckel's diverticulum and review the current literature on perforated GISTs. We ran a search on Pubmed and Google Scholar with the following terms "perforated GIST," "perforated Meckel's diverticulum," "GIST with peritonitis," and "GIST in Meckel's diverticulum...

Perforation of Meckel's diverticulum is a rare complication in neonatal period. A 3-dayold term male neonate was transferred to our emergency room due to bowel perforation. Surgical exploration was done and perforated Meckel's diverticulum was detected. Pathological report of the tissue showed inflamed diverticulum with heterotopic gastric mucosa. This is the first report of Meckel's diverticulum perforation in a neonate in our country.

Gallstone ileus due to erosion of one or more gallstones into the gastrointestinal tract is an uncommon cause of small bowel obstruction. The site of impaction is usually distal ileum, and less commonly the jejunum, colon, duodenum, or stomach. We report a rare case of gallstone ileus with impaction at the proximal small bowel and at a Meckel's diverticulum (MD) in a 64-year-old woman managed with laparoscopic converted to open small bowel resections. Patient was discharged home in stable condition and remained asymptomatic at 6-mo follow up...
