How do medications treat a Littre's hernia?

A Answers (1)

  • Medications cannot be used to treat a Littre's hernia. Surgery is needed to remove the Meckel's diverticulum and repair the hernia. In some cases, emergency surgery is needed to treat symptoms of incarceration or strangulation hernia. It is during hernia surgery that a diagnosis of Littre's hernia is often confirmed.
