Meckel’s diverticulum (MD) is the most common congenital anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract. The majority of MD cases are asymptomatic although they can, occasionally, cause complications such as bleeding, intestinal obstruction and inflammatory process. The diagnosis is difficult and it usually made at surgery. The treatment in symptomatic MD is surgical resection while there are arguments about the
treatment of asymptomatic MD. The study concerns 9 cases of MD. 7 patients were males and 2 patients were females. The ages of the patients range from 21 to 59. The most common complication was diverticulitis in 7 patients. The diverticulectomy was made in all patients. There was not operative mortality and morbidity. We believe that diverticular complications are important; on account of this low postoperative mortality and morbidity, in the absence of containdications, we recommend surgical resection in the cases of asymptomatic MD also.
