AIM: Abnormal colonic pressure profiles and high intraluminal pressures are postulated to contribute to the formation of sigmoid colon diverticulosis and the pathophysiology of diverticular disease (DD). This study aimed to review evidence for abnormal colonic pressure profiles in diverticulosis. METHOD: All published studies investigating colonic pressure in patients with diverticulosis were searched in three databases (MEDLINE, EMBASE, SCOPUS). No language restrictions were applied...

BACKGROUND: Sigmoid volvulus (SV) is the third leading cause of large bowel obstruction after colonic neoplasms and diverticular disease. SV has traditionally been managed via endoscopic detorsion and decompression followed by non-emergent surgical resection owing to the high risk of recurrence. Most cases of SV occur in elderly debilitated patients with multiple comorbidities and may not be candidates for surgical resection. Endoscopic sigmoidopexy has been described as an alternative to surgical resection...

PURPOSE: We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of prospective studies of the association between body mass index (BMI) and physical activity and diverticular disease risk. METHODS: PubMed and Embase databases were searched up to February 7, 2017. Summary relative risks and 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) were calculated using a random effects model and nonlinear associations were modeled using fractional polynomial models. RESULTS: Six cohort studies of BMI and diverticular disease risk (28,915 cases, 1,636,777 participants) and five cohort studies of physical activity and diverticular disease risk (2080 cases, 147,869 participants) were included...

BACKGROUND: Giant diverticula are rare complications of diverticular disease. Current opinion regards operative therapy as the method of choice for the treatment of symptomatic giant diverticula; however, there is neither consensus about the technique nor about the necessary extent of resection. Based on a non-systematic review of the literature, an overview of giant diverticula in terms of epidemiology, pathology and classification is given. The current case is considered with respect to appropriate diagnostic procedures and possible therapeutic options...

OBJECTIVE: Colovesical fistulas (CVF) constitute the most common type of spontaneously occurring fistulas associated with diverticular disease. One-stage laparoscopic resection has been shown to be feasible, but studies comparing this approach to open surgery are scarce. The aim of this study was to compare the clinical outcomes of open and laparoscopic surgery for CVF of diverticular origin. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From January 2000 to July 2014, 37 colectomies were performed for diverticular disease-related CVF...

Data regarding management of colonic diverticulitis in renal transplant recipients (RTRs) are limited. This study aims to identify prevalence, risk factors, and outcomes in RTRs with colonic diverticulosis and diverticulitis. Between January 2004 and December 2013, all patients who underwent kidney transplantation were analyzed. Among all RTSs, patients who had a pretransplant colonoscopic diagnosis of diverticulosis and patients with a proven attack of diverticulitis were included in our analysis. There were 1578 RTRs with a mean age of 50 ± 14 years at the time of transplantation...

Urolithiasis is a significant worldwide source of morbidity, constituting a common urological disease that affects between 10 and 15% of the world population. Recent technological and surgical advances have replaced the need for open surgery with less invasive procedures. The factors which determine the indications for percutaneous nephrolithotomy include stone factors (stone size, stone composition, and stone location), patient factors (habitus and renal anomalies), and failure of other treatment modalities (ESWL and flexible ureteroscopy)...

BACKGROUND: Colonic diverticular disease is a common disorder with increasing incidence in Western societies. The intestinal microbiome may be among etiological factors. Helicobacter pylori may protect against some intestinal diseases, and incidence of H. pylori is decreasing in Western societies. Thus, we aimed to determine whether H. pylori is associated to decreased prevalence of registered colonic diverticular disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a historical cohort study, patients were enrolled from primary health care centers after urea breath test for H...

BACKGROUND: Diverticular disease (DD) and hepatic and renal cysts have been linked with defects in collagen and dysfunctional matrix metalloproteinases. METHODS: Consecutive abdominal computed tomography scans between January-July 2015 were prospectively studied to determine a correlation between visceral cysts and DD. Patients with a sigmoid colectomy for pathology other than DD and scans in which DD and/or solid organs were not fully visualized were excluded. A subgroup analysis was performed on youthful DD patients (<55 years of age, n = 32) vs...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of diverticulosis is increasing with 5-10% of patients developing diverticulitis and 5-15% developing symptomatic bleeding. Diverticulitis can result in abscess, perforation, fistula, or obstruction. Bleeding has combined morbidity and mortality rates of 10-20%. The purpose of this study was to compare diverticulitis-related complications and transfusion requirements for diverticular bleeding in patients with normal to moderately reduced kidney function (glomerular filtration rate (GFR) ≥ 30 mL/min/1...

Colonic diverticular disease (CDD) and colonic diverticular hemorrhage (CDH) are the most common disorders in hospital admissions and outpatient health clinic visits. However, risk factors of CDD and CDH are complicated and need to be discussed. Diabetes mellitus (DM) has been related with CDD and CDH, but the associations remain ambiguous. Therefore, we performed a literature search for studies involving the associations among DM, morbidity of CDD, and incidence of CDH. Relative risks or odds ratios with their corresponding 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were combined and weighted to produce summary effect size...

BACKGROUND: Indications for colostomy in colorectal diseases are obstruction of the large bowel, such as in cancer, diverticular disease in the acute phase, post-radiotherapy enteritis, complex perirectal fistulas, anorectal trauma and severe anal incontinence. Some critically ill patients cannot tolerate an exploratory laparotomy, and laparoscopic assisted colostomy also requires general anesthesia. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the feasibility, safety and efficacy of performing colostomy assisted by colonoscopy and percutaneous colopexy...

Liver abscesses are an uncommon disease that can present with vague symptoms. Fusobacterium necrophorum causing liver abscesses is a rare condition and only a few cases have been reported. An 88-year-old female presented to her primary care physician with one week of fevers, night sweats, chills, fatigue and vague right upper quadrant abdominal pain. She denied nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea and unintentional weight loss. A computed tomography scan of the abdomen showed two liver abscesses in the right lobe as well as extensive diverticulosis...

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)...
