Abstract:

Gastric diverticula are extremely rare in the surgical pathology and is usually asymptomatic. Their discovery is in most cases incidentally, on radiographic examination or autopsy. The most frequent localization is on the posterior wall of the cardia and on the lesser curvature of the stomach. Symptomatic gastric diverticula are rare, mainly occurring in patients between 20 and 60 years of age. We present a rare case of gastric diverticula on  the  greater curvature in a 46- year- old female from urban area. Intraoperatory, the diverticula was discovered on the greater gastric curvature after endoscopic exploration and gastrotomy, next to splenic root. The diverticul was resected with an linear stapler device. Surgical intervention effectively relieves symptoms. In adults, laparoscopic resection seems to be an attractive alternative to conventional surgery, although some authors experienced problems in identifying the diverticulum intraoperatively.
