Abstract

Duplications of the alimentary tract are one of the rare anomalies of the gastrointestinal system. Because of the wide spectrum of the signs and symptoms, preoperative diagnosis frequently cannot be made. A close familiarity with clinical and surgical characteristics provides appropriate management and treatment of duplications. A retrospective clinical study was conducted to evaluate clinical and surgical characteristics and the treatment of duplications of the alimentary tract.
