Marilia Carabotti, Bruno Annibale, Carola Severi, Edith Lahner
Symptomatic uncomplicated diverticular disease (SUDD) is a syndrome characterized by recurrent abdominal symptoms in patients with colonic diverticula. There is some evidence that a high-fiber diet or supplemental fibers may reduce symptoms in SUDD patients and a high-fiber diet is commonly suggested for these patients. This systematic review aims to update the evidence on the efficacy of fiber treatment in SUDD, in terms of a reduction in symptoms and the prevention of acute diverticulitis. According to PRISMA, we identified studies on SUDD patients treated with fibers (PubMed and Scopus)...

Management of diverticular disease has significantly improved in the last decade. Antibiotic treatment is used for symptom relief and prevention of complications. In Italy, the non-absorbable antibiotic rifaximin is one of the most frequently used drugs, and it is perceived as the reference drug to treat symptomatic diverticular disease. Its non-systemic absorption and high faecal concentrations have oriented rifaximin use to the gastrointestinal tract, where rifaximin exerts eubiotic effects representing an additional value to its antibiotic activity...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Diverticular disease is a first-class health care problem and one of the most common gastrointestinal disorders in western industrialized countries, causing significant morbidity and mortality. In this review of the literature, we aim to assess the feasibility and effectiveness of the laparoscopic approach in both elective and emergency setting of diverticular disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A bibliographic search of articles was performed using the electronic database Medline from PubMed...

Appendiceal diverticulosis is a rare condition with a frequency of 0.004% to 2.1%, and is sometimes an occasional finding during anatomopathologic study of the surgical specimen. It may be presented acutely as a right lower quadrant pain, similar to acute appendicitis for which differential diagnosis must be carried out, and it is associated with appendicular tumors. We report a case of diverticulitis of the appendix as debut of appendicular cystadenoma and carcinoid tumor with representative iconography, being unusual the association of both diseases and even more its preoperative diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: In the past diverticulitis was believed to be uncommon in the young population. However, there is growing concern suggesting that these patients develop more severe clinical symptoms and may require more frequent intervention. METHOD: We performed a retrospective chart review of patients with diverticulitis in individuals with age less than 40 years over an 8 year period (2007-2015). Diagnosis was confirmed with a CT scan. In addition to age we took into consideration race, gender, anemia (hematocrit< 41), leukocytosis (WBC > 12), BMI and whether it was an initial episode or recurrence...

INTRODUCTION: There is an ongoing debate whether prophylactic drainage or incidental appendectomy should be performed in patients undergoing colorectal surgery. On the other hand, it has been shown that the placement of drains through former trocar sites as well as the use of large (≥10mm) trocars, incomplete fascial closure or closed laparoscopy technique all predispose for the occurrence of trocar site hernias. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We report the case of a 59-year-old male patient who underwent laparoscopic sigmoid colectomy with primary anastomosis for recurrent sigmoid diverticulitis...

This systematic review and meta-analysis investigates current evidence on the therapeutic role of laparoscopic lavage in the management of diverticular peritonitis. A systematic review of the literature was performed on PubMed until June 2016, according to preferred reporting items for systematic reviews and meta-analyses guidelines. All randomised controlled trials comparing laparoscopic lavage with surgical resection, irrespective of anastomosis or stoma formation, were analysed. After assessment of titles and full text, 3 randomised trials fulfilled the inclusion criteria...

Diverticulitis primarily affects the sigmoid colon and is often complicated by intra-abdominal abscesses and fistulas. Rarely, however, mesenteric venous thrombosis has been known to occur. Optimal management is still unclear. We report the first case of polymicrobial sepsis resulting from diverticular pylephlebitis, managed successfully with bowel rest, antibiotics, and anticoagulation.

BACKGROUND: Diverticulosis is a very common condition. Around 20% of the carriers of diverticula are believed to suffer from diverticular disease during their lifetime. This makes diverticular disease one of the clinically and economically most significant diseases in gastroenterology. The etiopathogenesis of diverticulosis and diverticular disease is not well understood. Epidemiological studies allow to define risk factors for the development of diverticulitis and its complications. METHODS: A comprehensive literature search was performed and the current knowledge about risk factors for diverticulitis and associated conditions reviewed...

During treatment for sigmoid colon diverticulitis, a 72-year-old man underwent abdominal computed tomography, which revealed a gastric tumor that was approximately 40mm in diameter. He then underwent a detailed examination after the remission of diverticulitis. The gastric mucosa was found to be unremarkable on gastrointestinal endoscopy. On ultrasonic endoscopy, however, a hypoechoic mass of approximately 40mm in diameter was detected in the fourth layer of the gastric fornix and was believed to be a gastric submucosal tumor(SMT)...

Epiploic appendagitis (EA) is a rare cause of acute abdominal pain caused by inflammation of an epiploic appendage. It has a nonspecific clinical presentation that may mimic other acute abdominal pathologies on physical exam, such as appendicitis, diverticulitis, or cholecystitis. However, EA is usually benign and self-limiting and can be treated conservatively. We present the case of a patient with two episodes of EA, the first mimicking acute appendicitis and the second mimicking acute cholecystitis. Although recurrence of EA is rare, it should be part of the differential diagnosis of acute, localized abdominal pain...

PURPOSE: This study assessed optimal management of colonic diverticulitis as functions of disease location and severity and factors associated with complicated diverticulitis. METHODS: This retrospective review analyzed 202 patients diagnosed between 2007 and 2014 at Chonbuk National University Hospital, South Korea, with colonic diverticulitis by using abdominopelvic computed tomography. Diverticulitis location was determined, and disease severity was categorized using the modified Hinchey classification...

OBJECTIVE: Pelvic phleboliths are commonly encountered on plain and CT imaging and remain a source of frustration when attempting to differentiate them from ureteral calculi. Given their frequency, surprising little is known about their significance. We review the literature on pelvic phleboliths, specifically in relation to their history, demography, clinical significance, and methods to distinguish them from ureteral calculi. METHODS: A comprehensive literature search was performed for all articles concerning pelvic phleboliths...

PURPOSE: Several factors may influence the risk of recurrence after an episode of acute colonic diverticulitis. Until now, a comprehensive systematic overview and evaluation of relevant risk factors have not been presented. This review aimed at assembling and evaluating current evidence on risk factors for recurrence after conservatively treated acute colonic diverticulitis. METHODS: PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane databases were searched for studies evaluating risk factors for recurrence after acute diverticulitis treated non-surgically defined as antibiotic treatment, percutaneous abscess drainage, or by observation...
