The presence of a Meckel's diverticulum in a hernia sac is known as Littré's hernia. We report a case of Littré's hernia in an 18-year old young man because of the uncommon condition. An 18-year old young patient was admitted to the Emergency Surgical Department of Zinder National Hospital, Zinder, Niger with a painful inguinoscrotal swelling of three days duration. The diagnosis of strangulated right inguinoscrotal hernia was made. At surgery, a Meckel's diverticulum was found at the antimesenteric border of the ileum in the hernia sac, the bowel loop was not viable...

Pentalogy of Cantrell is a rare syndrome that is characterized by varying degrees of midline wall defects and congenital cardiac anomalies. A left ventricular diverticulum (LVD) is defined as partial ectopia cordis, can be part of the pentalogy of Cantrell, and can put the patient at risk of severe complications. Early diagnosis and ligation/resection of the LVD is important to prevent complications. We report on a case of pentalogy of Cantrell, in which a LVD was diagnosed only at 2 months of age despite preceding pre- and postnatal echocardiography...

OBJECTIVES: The main objective of this retrospective study was to assess functional results in endoscopic Zenker's diverticulum surgery. The secondary objectives were to assess safety, identify recurrence risk factors, and determine optimal management of recurrence. MATERIAL AND METHODS: From 2000 to 2014, 50 patients underwent endoscopic surgery for marsupialization of Zenker's diverticulum. Regurgitation and dysphagia were assessed on the FOIS scale, pre- and post-operatively...

BACKGROUND: Tumors within a Meckel diverticulum are a rare complication observed in only 0.5%-3.2% of symptomatic cases. The majority of tumors are benign, but some malignant tumors, such as gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) can occur. CASE REPORT: We report the case of a 48-year-old female who presented with severe abdominal pain and nausea and was found to have a GIST arising from a Meckel diverticulum. CONCLUSION: The differential diagnosis of a pelvic mass in a middle-aged female presenting with gastrointestinal symptoms must remain broad...

OBJECTIVE: We describe a case of gastrointestinal duplication cyst with heterotopic gastric mucosa presenting with hematochezia. CASE: The patient was a previously healthy 2-month-old girl presenting with passing fresh blood in the diaper without distress or abdominal discomfort. She was evaluated for colic prior to this episode and discharged home. Meckel scan was positive, and surgeons performed an exploratory laparotomy to identify a jejunal duplication cyst...

Inguinal herniation of a bladder diverticulum is a rare finding. The diagnosis should be suspected if the size of hernia is variable on urination. These patients may also experience obstructive voiding symptoms. Various imaging modalities may clarify the diagnosis. In our patient, intravenous urography precisely showed a bladder diverticulum in the right inguinal area. The patient underwent open simple prostatectomy and herniorrhaphy. He remains symptom-free on follow-up.

Diverticulitis and diverticular abscesses are rare and potentially serious complications of duodenal diverticulum. These conditions often lead to perforation of the diverticulum, necessitating surgical treatment. There have been few reported cases of duodenal diverticulitis with or without perforation treated by endoscopic drainage. Here, we present a case of duodenal diverticulitis accompanied by abscess formation that was treated successfully with an endoscopic nasobiliary drainage catheter. We suggest this treatment could be an acceptable option for selected patients with a localized abscess that is resistant to conservative treatment...

OBJECTIVE: Meckel's diverticulum scintigraphy (MDS) is a common method for diagnosing ectopic gastric mucosa (EGM), but atypical images are difficult to diagnose. This study aimed to improve the understanding of the existing diagnostic criteria through a review of confirmed cases. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: A total of 352 patients underwent MDS. Among 120 patients with a positive diagnosis, 106 underwent surgery. This study analyzed the imaging presentation, surgical records, and pathological results...

Non-malignant oesophageal diseases are critical to recognize, but can be easily overlooked or misdiagnosed radiologically. In this paper, we cover the salient clinical features and imaging findings of non-malignant pathology of the oesophagus. We organize the many non-malignant diseases of the oesophagus into two major categories: luminal disorders and wall disorders. Luminal disorders include dilatation/narrowing (e.g. achalasia, scleroderma, and stricture) and foreign body impaction. Wall disorders include wall thickening (e...

Urolithiasis is a significant worldwide source of morbidity, constituting a common urological disease that affects between 10 and 15% of the world population. Recent technological and surgical advances have replaced the need for open surgery with less invasive procedures. The factors which determine the indications for percutaneous nephrolithotomy include stone factors (stone size, stone composition, and stone location), patient factors (habitus and renal anomalies), and failure of other treatment modalities (ESWL and flexible ureteroscopy)...

Mei Diao, Long Li, Kao-Ping Guan, Zhen Zhang, Wei Cheng
BACKGROUND: The repair of anorectal malformation (ARM) with low recto-bulbar fistula (bowel-to-skin distance: 1-1.5 cm) is contraindicated for laparoscopy due to the difficulty in exposing the fistulae. Posterior or anterior sagittal anorectoplasty is thus conventionally carried out for low recto-bulbar fistula repair. However, these procedures carry the potential risk of wound infection/dehiscence and incontinence. We have developed a single-incision laparoscopic-assisted perineal anorectoplasty (SILPARP) technique...

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. Uncomplicated heterotopic pancreas is typically asymptomatic, with the lesion being discovered incidentally during an unrelated surgery, during an imaging examination, or at autopsy...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the surgical outcomes of female urethral diverticulectomy. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the medical records of 68 patients with symptomatic urethral diverticula (UD) with at least 1 year of follow-up data following transvaginal urethral diverticulectomy conducted by single surgeon. The presence of UD was confirmed by a preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). According to MRI findings, the UDs were classified as simple, U-shaped, or circumferential...

INTRODUCTION:  Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is a congenital true diverticulum that is residual yolk duct tissue, and some cases with complications require surgery. It has been reported that laparoscopic surgery is effective for patients with an MD. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 79-year-old man with melena visited our hospital. Upper gastrointestinal series and colonoscopy showed no bleeding lesion. Double-balloon endoscopy was then performed to examine the small intestine...

Meckel's diverticulum is a congenital anomaly present in about 3% of the population and usually asymptomatic. Rarely, a mesodiverticular band extends from the tip of a Meckel's diverticulum to the mesentery, thought to be due to lack of involution of the left vitelline artery. The presence of this band creates a closed loop through which loops of bowel can become entrapped. Rare case reports have described incarceration of bowel and sudden death in children. We present such a case and discuss this entity.

Dysphagia affects the most cardinal of human functions: the ability to eat and drink. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate swallowing dysfunction in patients diagnosed with Zenker's diverticulum using the Swallowing Quality of Life (SWAL-QOL) questionnaire preoperatively. In addition, SWAL-QOL was used to assess changes in the outcome of swallowing function after endoscopic treatment of Zenker's diverticulum compared to baseline. Pre- and postoperative SWAL-QOL data were analyzed in 25 patients who underwent endoscopic treatment of Zenker's diverticulum between January 2011 and December 2013...

INTRODUCTION: The Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is the most common congenital anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract present in approximately 1-4% of the population; the MD duplication is exceedingly rare with only a few reports of it. Here we present the firs case of a strangulated Littre's hernia with MD duplication.
