Role of protective stoma after primary anastomosis for generalized peritonitis due to perforated diverticulitis-DIVERTI 2 (a prospective multicenter randomized trial): rationale and design (nct04604730).

BMC Surg 2022 May 16;22(1):191. Epub 2022 May 16.

Department of Digestive Surgery, Rouen University Hospital, Rouen, France.

Background: Traditionally, patients with peritonitis Hinchey III and IV due to perforated diverticulitis were treated with Hartmann's procedure. In the past decade, resection and primary anastomosis have gained popularity over Hartmann's procedure and recent guidelines recommend Hartmann's procedure in two situations only: critically ill patients and in selected patients with multiple comorbidity (at high risk of complications). The protective stoma (PS) is recommended after resection with primary anastomosis, however its interest has never been studied. Read More

A Rare Presentation of Recurrent Diverticulitis in a Patient with Ulcerative Colitis.

Eur J Case Rep Intern Med 2022 5;9(4):003271. Epub 2022 Apr 5.

RWJ Barnabas Health/Trinitas Regional Medical Center, Elizabeth, NJ, USA.

Diverticulitis and ulcerative colitis (UC) are two separate colonic pathologies with different underlying mechanisms. Diverticulosis involves herniation of mucosal and submucosal tissue through muscular tissue in response to increased intraluminal pressure. In contrast, it is believed that the muscular tone in patients with UC is reduced due to chronic inflammatory changes. Read More

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Several conditions, including cancer, major trauma, surgery, prolonged immobilization, are well-established risk factors for VTE. Read More

Analysis of the Relationship Between Periampullary Diverticulum and Recurrent Bile Duct Stones After Endoscopy on Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Magnetic Nanoparticles.

J Biomed Nanotechnol 2022 Feb;18(2):607-615

Department of Hepatobiliary Pancreatic Surgery and Liver Transplantation Center, The First Hospital of Shanxi Medical University, Taiyuan, 030000, China.

The objective of this work was to investigate the effect of magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) based on super-paramagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) on the recurrence diagnosis of periampullary diverticulum (PAD) and bile duct stone (BDS), so as to provide a scientific research basis for the recidivation factors of bile duct stones in clinic. Patients with PAD diagnosed in hospital from July 2019 to March 2021 (who had undergone endoscopic gallstone surgery) were selected for study in this work. They were rolled into two groups, the parapapillary group (123 cases) and the cholangiopancreatic duct directly opening in the diverticulum group (97 cases), according to the clinical classification.
