[Laparoscopic management of Meckel's diverticulum].


We present our observations on two young patients with repeated digestive bleeding from hemorrhagic Meckel's diverticulum. In one patient examined by Tc99 scintigraphy, the hemorrhagic area was shown in the lower abdomen. The laparoscopic exploration showed the Meckel's diverticulum at 1 m distance from ileocecal angle. Both cases were treated by resection with a vascular stapler postoperative evolution was favorable.
