Overview

Common risk factors in the development of Meckel's diverticulum include histologic and anatomic features such as length of diverticulum >2cm, presence of ectopic tissue, broad based diverticulum, and attachment of fibrous bands to the diverticulum. Patient age of less than 50 years and the male gender are more susceptible to the development of Meckel's diverticulum.

  • Common risk factors in the development of Meckel's diverticulum include age <50 years, male sex, presence of ectopic tissue, and length of diverticulum >2cm.

Common Risk Factors

  • Common risk factors in the development of Meckel's diverticulum include:
    • Age <50 years
    • Male sex
  • Some histologic and anatomic features present in predisposed individuals include:
