We encountered two cases of perforated duodenal diverticulum successfully treated with conservative therapy. The first case involved a 72-year-old man who presented with abdominal pain and fever. An abdominal computed tomography revealed pneumoretroperitoneum. The second case involved a 90-year-old woman who presented with abdominal pain, vomiting, and fever. An abdominal computed tomography also revealed pneumoretroperitoneum and fluid collection. In both the cases, we initiated conservative therapy with parenteral nutrition and intravenous antibiotic therapy because the patients' general condition was good and the pneumoretroperitoneum was localized...

Retroperitoneal perforation of duodenal diverticula around the papilla of Vater is relatively rare. In this report, we describe retroperitoneal abscess, which was successfully treated by endoscopic drainage. Thus, endoscopic approach for retroperitoneal perforation caused by diverticulum is one of the treatment options in addition to surgery.

Lemmel syndrome occurs when a duodenal diverticulum causes obstructive jaundice due to a mechanical obstruction of the common bile duct. Additional pathophysiologic processes may also contribute to the development of Lemmel syndrome. These include duodenal diverticula causing dysfunction of the sphincter of Oddi as well as compression of the common bile duct by duodenal diverticula. It is uncommon for duodenal diverticulum to become inflamed. We report the case of a 25-year-old female presenting with unintentional weight loss and fatigue...

The duodenum is an uncommon location of diverticula in the digestive tract, and they are often asymptomatic. Formation of an enterolith inside diverticula has been previously described, although it is a rare condition. In this context, intestinal obstruction due to distal migration of foreign bodies is extremely rare. We report a case of an 86-year-old woman with obstructive symptoms due to a jejunal foreign body that had migrated from a duodenal diverticulum. An emergency laparotomy was performed to extract a phytobezoar...

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...

OBJECTIVES: We have previously shown that at least 50% of patients with asymptomatic chronic pancreatic hyperenzymemia (ACPH) may develop morphological pancreatic alterations. Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) may detect small lesions, and its sensitivity seems to be higher than other imaging techniques. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether EUS may modify the management of patients having ACPH. METHODS: In 2 referral centers for pancreatic disease, a retrospective analysis of prospectively enrolled patients with ACPH was conducted...

The reported prevalence of periampullary duodenal diverticula varies between 9 and 32.8%. The aim of the study was to evaluate the prevalence of periampullary diverticula in the studied population and establish whether their presence influence the risk of choledocholithiasis and the risk of Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio Pancreatography (ERCP) related complications. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study group of 3788 patients who underwent ERCP between 1996 and 2016 at the 2nd Department of General Surgery Jagiellonian University Medical College in Kraków were analyzed...

Periampullary duodenal diverticula are associated with the presence of common bile duct stones, being encountered more frequently with the increase of age. We present the case of a 76 years old female patient, who underwents emergency surgery for a perforated lithiasic gangrenous acute cholecystitis and for whom we perform a cholecystectomy and an external biliary drainage using a transcystic tube. Both preoperative and postoperative imaging and endoscopic examinations certify the presence of a periampullary duodenal diverticulum...

BACKGROUND: Diagnostic upper gastrointestinal (UGI) endoscopy has been regarded as a safe procedure. CASE REPORT: We report of a 67-year-old woman who developed epigastric pain and dyspeptic complaints following an uneventful upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. The diagnosis of an acute reversible duodenitis was made on the basis of imaging studies. A duodenal diverticulum was also found on CT images, which raised the suspicion that duodenal diverticulum could be a predisposing factor for duodenitis...

OBJECTIVE: Recurrent acute pancreatitis is an uncommon diagnosis in teenagers. Excluded alcohol and biliary stones, more prevalent aetiologies in these group of patients are genetic pancreatitis, pancreatic duct system abnormalities, neoplasia, traumas and congenital abnormalities of the duodenum such as duodenal duplication or diverticulum. Two reported cases of recurrent pancreatitis associated to midgut malrotation were described in English literature. Bowel malrotation is a difficult diagnosis in a teenager or a young adult and a common delay is documented...

INTRODUCTION: The duodenum is the second most common location of intestinal diverticula following the colon (Juler et al., 1969) [1]. Only 1-5% of patients with duodenal diverticula become symptomatic (Oukachbi, 2013) [2]. The least common but most serious complication of duodenal diverticula is perforation, which has a mortality rate of 20% (Oukachbi, 2013; Yin et al., 2001; Song, 2015; Schnueriger et al., 2008) [2-5].

An intraluminal duodenal diverticulum (IDD) is a rare congenital anomaly that is the result of incomplete recanalization of the embryologic foregut leaving a fenestrated membrane within the lumen of the duodenum. Years of peristalsis acting on the membrane result in the formation of a diverticulum. Most patients are asymptomatic, while some may have abdominal pain, bloating, or fullness. Rare complications include gastrointestinal bleeding, obstruction, pancreatitis, and cholangitis. We present 2 cases with endoscopic findings consistent with partially obstructing symptomatic IDD...

BACKGROUND: Duodenum diverticulum is the most common site for diverticular disease of small intestine. Most of duodenal diverticulum are asymptomatic, but complicated or perforated duodenal diverticulum is rare. Nonoperative management is attractive in selected patients, because of higher surgical complications. We suggest the use of a minimally invasive operative method as an alternative approach for the management of complicated duodenal diverticulum, especially when conservative treatment has failed...

UNLABELLED: Juxtapapillary duodenal diverticula are reported as a potential cause of many pancreatobiliary diseases. However, data concerning this association is inconsistent and the role of the diverticulum is often underestimated or even denied in clinical practice. This case report and literature review is aimed at pointing out this problem.Obstruction of the diverticulum with a food bezoar can be considered as an important clinical clue of the etiological role of the diverticulum in pancreatobiliary disease development...

INTRODUCTION: Duodenal diverticulum (DD) is the second most common diverticulum, yet its incidence varies widely from 1-22% based on the mode of investigation. Computed Tomography (CT) of abdomen is the preferred modality to diagnose acute abdomen including those of complications of DD. Moreover, the prevalence of DD in Indian population is not yet been studied using CT. AIM: The current study aim to look for the prevalence of DD in Indian population using Contrast Enhanced Computed Tomography (CECT) abdomen...

Capsule endoscopy is being increasingly recognized as a gold standard for diagnosing small bowel disease, but along with the increased usage, capsule retention is being reported more frequently. We report a case of capsule endoscopy retention in a diverticulum of the duodenal proximal third portion, which we treated by esophagogastroduodenoscopy. A 69-year-old male visited hospital with hematochezia. He had hypertension and dyslipidemia for several years, and was taking aspirin to prevent heart disease. CT and colonoscopy revealed a diverticulum in the third portion of the duodenum, rectal polyps, and internal hemorrhoids...
