CHAVEZ-RIVALDI, Cristhian; SISA-SEGOVIA, Cesar Giuliano  and  DELGADO, Juan Marcelo. Complete intestinal occlusion due to plastered Meckel’s diverticulitis. Cir. parag. [online]. 2022, vol.46, n.3, pp.26-27. ISSN 2307-0420.

The most common congenital GI anomaly is Meckel's diverticulum. These are true diverticula because they contain all the layers of the intestine. It is often asymptomatic. Diagnosis in the remaining 80% of the cases is incidental and achieved through surgical findings. The rate of complications is somewhere between 2% and 40%, the most frequent of which are hemorrhage, bowel obstruction, and diverticulitis. The occlusive form of presentation is rare and requires a high index of suspicion.
