Epiphrenic diverticulum is a rare disease associated with esophageal motor disorders that is usually asymptomatic and has a well-established surgical indication. We report a case of giant epiphrenic diverticulum in a 59-year-old symptomatic woman who was diagnosed after underwent complementary exams. Because of her symptoms, the surgical treatment was chosen, and esophageal diverticulectomy was performed along with laparoscopic cardiomyotomy and anterior partial fundoplication.

Transoral stapled diverticulo-esophagostomy (TSDE) has gained increased popularity in surgical treatment of Zenker diverticulum (ZD). One of the advantages of this approach is early rehabilitation with significant decrease in patient morbidity and time to resumption of oral intake as compared with open treatment. The section of the septum between the diverticulum and the esophagus with a flexible endoscopic (ES) approach has also been proposed since mid-90s as an alternative for treatment of ZD. Both these approaches are a minimally invasive approach to treat ZD...

OBJECTIVE: To provide a better surgical method for periampullary diverticulum, its teraninology and typing, and some experience in its diagnosis. METHOD: In 11 cases of recurrent cholangitis or (and) pancreatitis resulting from periampullary diverticula juxta-ampullary diverticula was observed in 9, intra-ampullary diverticulum in 1, and ampullocele in 1. All patients underwent elective operation including combined diverticulo-sphincteroplasty (7 cases), diverticulectomy with sphincteroplasty (2), diverticulectomy (1), and papilloplasty (1)...

After the colon, the duodenum is the most common site of diverticula. Duodenal diverticula can be divided into two types: intraluminal or extraluminal. The latter are more frequent, with a prevalence ranging from 0.6 to 27% in relation to the diagnostic methods utilized. Females are more often affected than males. About 70-75% of extraluminal duodenal diverticula are located in a circular area centred around the ampulla of Vater within a radius of 2-3 cm; these are defined as periampullary or juxtapapillary...
