Meckel’s diverticulum (MD) is the most common congenital malformation of the gastrointestinal tract4. In adults, it is usually clinically silent, but can be found incidentally, or may present with a variety of clinical manifestations including gastrointestinal bleeding, intussusception, intestinal obstruction or perforation3,4. By other hand, videocapsule endoscopy (VCE) is a powerful diagnostic tool that is especially useful in imaging the small intestine and management of patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding5.
The authors conducted a retrospective analysis of patients with MD diagnosed by VCE, between 2006 and 2015, in a tertiary referral center. All cases were followed for at least 18 months after the diagnosis.
