Abstract

Meckel's diverticulum is one of the common causes of gastrointestinal bleeding in the pediatric patient requiring laparotomy. Two children with Meckel's diverticulum have been successfully treated by laparoscopic excision. Both patients recovered without incident and were discharged at 3 and 5 days after surgery. The authors believe that laparoscopic diverticulectomy is a safe, effective, and minimal invasive treatment of Meckel's diverticulum in children.
