Diverticula of Meckel's diverticulum

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Diverticula, or multiple sacculations, of a Meekel's diverticulum are a relatively unknown and undocumented pathologic entity. A case is reported, and another case recalled. In both cases, the sacculations were in the fundus. There was partial or complete absence of muscular layers in the saccular wall. A congenital origin of these muscular defects is more likely than is an origin from acquired hydrostatic pressure.
