Littre hernia is defined as the herniation of a Meckel's diverticulum, while Richter's hernia is the herniation of a portion of the bowel wall. An extremely rare case of a combined Littre and Richter's femoral hernia is reported. An 82-year-old male presented at the emergency department with a painful golf ball-like mass at the right inguinofemoral region. With the diagnosis of incarcerated femoral hernia, he was urgently taken to the operating room. Intraoperatively, an incarcerated Littre, as well as a Richter's hernia were revealed...

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. Thus, their preoperative diagnosis is difficult. We experienced a case in which a vesicointestinal fistula was caused by a Meckel's diverticulum and was treated with laparoscopic surgery...

We conducted a retrospective study of 15 patients with complicated Meckel diverticula treated in the emergency surgery at the Aristide Le Dantec Hospital, Dakar, over a period of 13 years (January 2003-June 2016). The study included 10 men and 5 women, whose average age was 27.8 years, ranging between 1 months and 73 years. The two main circumstances of detection were occlusive syndrome and peritoneal irritation. Emergency laparotomy allowed clinicians to affirm the involvement of Meckel diverticulum in the clinical picture...

AIM: To evaluate the effectiveness of complex preoperative diagnostics and medication of intussusception followed by intestinal obstruction in adults with the choice of surgical repair and analysis of the outcomes depending on the causes of intussusception. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 15 intussusception patients aged 19 - 86 years were enrolled. Mean age was 52.7 years. Patients were hospitalized within 12 hours - 1-2 weeks after onset of the disease. Diagnosis was established on the basis of complaints, anamnesis, objective and additional survey...

Ectopic pancreas also known as heterotopic pancreas (HP) is a rare congenital anomaly, mainly found as incidental finding during autopsy or abdominal exploration for an other condition. Incidence rate is probably underestimated as patients are mostly asymptomatic; otherwise, it is capable of producing symptoms depending on its location, size, often appearing in the 4th-to-6th decades. Complications such as inflammation, obstruction, bleeding, and malignancy degeneration must be considered. Pediatrics cases are very rare, generally concerning HP within Meckel's diverticulum, manifesting by gastrointestinal bleeding and intussusception...

BACKGROUND: The presence of gastric ectopic mucosa in Meckel's diverticulum is associated with a higher risk of development of complications. The aim of the present study was to investigate which demographic/clinical parameters predict the presence of gastric heterotopia in Meckel's diverticulum. METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study conducted in a single institution (University Hospital Ostrava, Czech republic). All children who underwent laparoscopic/open resection of Meckel's diverticulum within a 20-year study period were included in the study...

A Meckel's scintigraphy using TcO4 was performed in a 9-year-old boy. The images revealed an elongated abnormal radiotracer accumulation in the right abdomen, which was confirmed as Meckel diverticulum combined with an omphalomesenteric cyst.

Meckel's diverticulum is a congenital anomaly which can become complicated or remain asymptomatic throughout life. During pregnancy, however, diverticulum infection could become a serious complication. Diverticulum necrosis and perforation are complications that increase morbidity in pregnancy, both maternal and fetal. The rarity of the condition and the maternal physiological changes in pregnancy make the diagnosis difficult. We present the case of a Meckel's diverticulum gangrene in third trimester pregnancy, atypical case due to advanced pregnancy where the risk-benefit balance was carefully evaluated on one hand because of the risk of infection associated with expectant management and on the other hand the risk and complications of iatrogenic preterm premature birth...

We report a case of a patient presenting with small bowel obstruction secondary to an enteric ileal duplication cyst. Although common in infancy, they are rarely seen in adults. Radiologically they may be difficult to distinguish from a Meckel diverticulum and often the diagnosis is made retrospectively. Optimal management of the asymptomatic adult is unclear.

RATIONALE: Annular pancreas (AP) is recognized as a cause of duodenal obstruction in children, while children with Meckel's diverticulum (MD) are usually asymptomatic. Here we present a rare case with both AP and MD, which was identified by abdominal exploration during diamond-shaped duodenoduodenostomy. PATIENT CONCERNS: A "double-bubble" sign was found by ultrasound at 35 week of pregnancy. After 39 weeks of pregnancy, the male patient was transferred to the Department of General Surgery, Children's Hospital of Soochow University because of a suspected duodenal stenosis...

The incidence of Meckel's diverticulum is 2% in the general population. Although most commonly found in children as painless rectal bleeding, in adults, obstruction, inflammation, and perforation are the usual manifestations. We present the case of a 32 year old man who arrived at our institution with hematochezia and symptomatic anemia. A large Meckel's diverticulum was encountered during work-up and treated by segmental small bowel resection. A literature review, including disease presentation, pathology findings, and treatment options is discussed...

PURPOSE: Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is a common congenital anomaly caused by failure of involution of the omphalomesenteric duct. Enthusiasm for minimally invasive surgery (MIS) in children has burgeoned as technologies have advanced, but the outcomes of laparoscopic resection in comparison to open laparotomy for MD remain poorly defined. We queried a large national database to compare current practice patterns and clinical outcomes between surgical approaches for MD in the pediatric population...

The case of an 11-year-old boy with an orange-associated ileus in the setting of a mesodiverticular band from a Meckel's diverticulum is reported herein. Computed tomography showed a small bowel feces sign. He underwent laparoscopic-assisted surgery, and intraoperative findings revealed a Meckel's diverticulum associated with a mesodiverticular band distal to dilated small bowel. After resection of the Meckel's diverticulum and inspection of the intestinal contents proximal to the obstruction, it was apparent that undigested food material was impacted proximal to the obstruction...
