Abstract

We present the first documented case of laparoscopically assisted resection of a jejunal diverticulum. A 53 year old gentleman presented with right sided abdominal pain along with raised inflammatory markers. Computed tomography revealed multiple diverticula in the proximal jejunum, one of which was inflamed. The patient was managed conservatively, and subsequently underwent an elective laparoscopically assisted resection of a jejunal diverticulum with no complications.
