Meckel’s diverticulum (MD) is considered the most prevalent congenital anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract, affecting 2% of the general population. MD results from the persistence of a portion of the omphalomesenteric duct, which connects the primitive gut to the yolk sac in early fetal life. Lack of elimination results in either an MD with or without a fibrous connection to the umbilicus or a fistula from the small bowel to the umbilicus. Only 4% of patients with an MD develop complications that include bleeding, perforation, inflammation, or obstruction. Obstruction related to an MD is most commonly reported secondary to intussusception or a volvulus around an attachment to the abdominal wall. Delay in the diagnosis of a complicated MD can lead to significant morbidity and mortality. Surgical treatment options include simple diverticulectomy or ileal resection.
