Title: Reccurent bleeding from Meckel´s diverticulum – surgeon´s challenge
Author: B. Hrbaty, N. Shilova, P. Labas, R. Reis, M. Cambal, V. Kostka

Abstract: The authors of this paper want to share their experience with diagnostic and therapeutic problems in case of chronic small intestinal bleeding from Meckel’s diverticulum, which ended with acute episode of massive gastrointestinal bleeding requiring emergent surgery.
Despite the progress achieved in diagnosing the sources of gastrointestinal bleeding, the diagnosis of small intestinal bleeding is very frequently beyond the ability of making it right, and thus emergent surgery is often the only possibility of saving the patient’s life on the one hand, and allowing stating the correct diagnosis on the other (Fig. 1, Ref. 6).
