How is a duodenal diverticulum treated?
If treatment is necessary, extramural diverticula can be
surgically removed from the outside of the duodenum. The diverticula also may be
inverted into the lumen of the duodenum and removed through an incision in the wall of the
duodenum. (Sometimes, the diverticulum is inverted but left attached to the wall
of the duodenum and protruding into the duodenum.)
