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...

MEDICAL HISTORY AND CLINICAL FINDINGS:  A 43-year old male patient was admitted because of diffuse abdominal discomfort for two days, which had started in the upper abdomen; medical history, no previous surgical interventions at the abdomen. INVESTIGATIONS:  Gastroscopy and abdominal ultrasound revealed only a mild gastritis. Laboratory parameters: showed only a slight leucocytosis (10 610/µL). On the 1st day of the hospital stay, the patient developed a worsening of the abdominal symptoms with distended abdomen, sounding bowel movements and recurrent vomiting, which were interpreted as acute abdomen by the surgeon on call leading to the indication of a surgical intervention...

INTRODUCTION: Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (GISTs) are a rare slow growing malignancy, accounting for less than 1% of all gastrointestinal (GI) tract tumors. These tumors are usually discovered incidentally by endoscopy, surgery or radiology. However on occasions they may present with significant symptoms including GI blood loss. This case report discusses an atypical presentation of a GIST in a 57-year-old female. CASE PRESENTATION: A 57-year-old woman presented to the emergency department following one episode of melena...

We report a case of a vesicoenteric fistula arising from an adenocarcinoma of ectopic pancreatic tissue in a Meckel diverticulum in a 58-year-old man. The patient suffered from refractory micturition pain and increased urinary frequency. Computerized tomography with a contrast agent showed a ring-shaped enhanced mass near the dome of the urinary bladder. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a cystic mass close to the urinary bladder with partly irregular wall and fistula formation to the urinary bladder. Surgical findings showed a Meckel diverticulum in the ileum, which formed a fistula with the urinary bladder, and Meckel diverticulectomy and partial cystectomy were performed...

The association between omphalomesenteric duct remnants and other digestive tract malformations is not rare. Most associated anomalies are reported with Meckel's diverticulum. We report two associated anomalies which were never reported: an ileal stenosis and an ileal duplication. Surgeons must be aware of associated anomalies to prevent post-operative complications.

PURPOSE: It is unclear whether simple diverticulectomy, rather than segmental bowel resection (SBR), is adequate treatment for gastrointestinal bleeding (GIB) secondary to Meckel diverticulum (MD). There is concern that ulcers in the adjacent bowel may continue to bleed if only the diverticulum is removed. This study seeks to determine if diverticulectomy is satisfactory treatment for bleeding MD. METHODS: A multi-institution, retrospective review was performed for patients with a diagnosis of MD and GIB who underwent simple diverticulectomy or small bowel resection...

A 47-year-old man with progressive anemia possibly due to digestive tract bleeding was referred to our hospital. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography of the abdomen showed a 2-cm tumor lesion arising near the small intestine. Enteroscopy revealed a 3-cm submucosal tumor at the ileum. A gastrointestinal stromal tumor of the small intestine was suspected, and the patient underwent surgery. During the operation, a diverticulum approximately 60 cm orad to the terminal ileum and a tumor at the top of the diverticulum were observed...

Enterobius vermicularis is an intestinal nematode commonly affecting children worldwide. Its transmission is by feco-oral route. Meckel's diverticulitis due to E. vermicularis infestation is an extremely rare presentation. An 11-year-old boy presented with acute abdomen. During surgery inflamed Meckel's diverticulum (M.D) was seen. Histopathology examination of specimen revealed E. vermicularis. Till date, only one case of E. vermicularis infestation of M.D is reported around five decades ago. This histopathological confirmation is extremely important as the required treatment (Mebendazole) of the infected case along with household contacts can prevent the spread of infection and may avoid surgery in known contacts...

Professor Zofia Umiastowska Sawicka laid the foundations for modern pediatric surgery in Poland, first in Bialystok, and subsequently in Kielce. She was a student of Prof. Jan Kossakowski from Warsaw Medical University to be counted among his most talented and skilled disciples. Professor Umiastowska became the head of the first Department of Pediatric Surgery in Bialystok, which was later incorporated into the Medical Academy of Bialystok. In 1977 she moved to Kielce to run the Department of Pediatric Surgery until her retirement in 1991...

RATIONALE: Meckel diverticulum (MD) is the most common congenital abnormality of the gastrointestinal tract. It is asymptomatic in the majority of patients. Perforation is a rare complication of MD and can be life-threatening. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 20-year-old male patient denying previous systemic disease and complaining of epigastric pain for 5 days came to our emergency department for help. Physical examination showed right lower quadrant tenderness without muscle guarding and rebounding pain...

Meckel's diverticulum is present in 2% of the general population and its inverted presentation is rare. The most frequent complications are gastrointestinal hemorrhage, obstruction, intussusception and perforation. In general, these complications occur in the first two decades of life, and mostly before the fourth decade. We present a case of inverted MD that started as a digestive hemorrhage of obscure origin in a 77-year-old man who was diagnosed by endoscopic capsule.
