Abstract

75% of duodenal diverticula occur in the second or descending portion in which in 60% of the cases a juxta-Oddian site is involved. In about 10% of the cases, juxta-Oddian forms may be responsible for symptoms due to their own effects or those induced in the biliary and pancreatic area. 2 cases in female patients are presented and the subject is examined from all aspects in the light of 85 cases from the literature. Exact preoperative diagnosis is difficult. Radiologic examination of the digestive tract and bile ducts, though by no means conclusive, is the only effective instrumental aid. When the symptoms are clear or indicative, surgery is necessary to prevent complications. In the 2 reported cases an uneventful course and complete recovery were observed after diverticulectomy combined with papillosphincteroplasty.
