PDF  


An unusual complication of Meckel's diverticulum, a strangulated Littré's crural hernia is described. The incidence and complications of Meckel's diverticulum are also discussed. The technique of exploration of the inguinal and crural channels, and of diverticulectomy, performed with a mechanical stappler under local anesthesia in consideration of the clinical conditions of the patient, is described. Signs and symptoms of a strangulated Littré's hernia are more subtle and evolve more slowly than those of a strangulated loop of the small intestine.
