This video demonstrate Laparoscopic meckel's diverticulectomy performed by Dr R K Mishra at World Laparoscopy Hospital. Meckel's diverticulum was first described about 400 years ago and continues to be a rare congenital disorder of small intestine. Laparoscopic surgery for Meckel's diverticulum has been described as a safe and effective procedure. We present our this video of patient with symptomatic Meckel's diverticulum. The incidence of Meckel's diverticulum at our institution is 0.3%. The majority of patients were male children. There were no staple-line leaks in any case. Laparoscopy is useful in both diagnosis and treatment. Laparoscopic resection of Meckel's diverticulum is feasible and ideal, especially when performed in specialized centers.
