Most Meckel's diverticulae are clinically silent and incidentally discovered during autopsy, laparotomy or imaging procedures. This congenital anomaly becomes clinically apparent only in patients with complications. Intestinal obstruction is the most common complication and may be due to different causes: strangulation, intussusception, volvulus, incarceration, tumors and miscellaneous etiologies.
Losing none of the features that made previous editions so popular, the author skillfully integrates new knowledge into the existing text without sacrificing the easily accessible style that makes this book unique. More than just a reference text, this authoritative book clearly delineates the field of ergonomics.
