Meckel's diverticulum is a congenital diverticulum, which contains intestinal mucosa and ectopic tissue (gastric or pancreatic). The diagnostic accuracy of monoballon enterosocopy has been reported between 58 - 74% compared to 67% of the endoscopic capsule in the evaluation of evident small bowel bleeding. Meckel's diverticulum is rarely diagnosed in adults and is usually associated with complications such as gastrointestinal bleeding, obstruction and diverticulitis (30%). The treatment for symptomatic Meckel's diverticulum is surgical resection, with or without an adjacent bowel segment.
