Surgical management of colovesical fistulas.

Tech Coloproctol 2020 May 27. Epub 2020 May 27.

Department of Colorectal Surgery, Cleveland Clinic Florida, 2950 Cleveland Clinic Blvd., Weston, FL, USA.

Background: The most common etiology of colovesical fistulas is complicated diverticular disease and the treatment of choice is surgical resection. There are very few reports of the application of minimally invasive approaches for these surgeries. The aim of our study was to evaluate the role of laparoscopy in this challenging surgical setting.

Acute diverticulitis: Key features for guiding clinical management.

Eur J Radiol 2020 Apr 30;128:109026. Epub 2020 Apr 30.

Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging, University of California, San Francisco, CA, United States.

Diverticular disease of the colon and small bowel is an important cause of pathology leading to emergency department visits and urgent gastrointestinal surgery. CT is a highly sensitive and specific modality for the diagnosis of acute diverticulitis and its complications as well as for the exclusion of alternate causes of pathology. Ultrasound, MRI and virtual CT colonoscopy have important adjunct roles for screening and workup of complications in specific patient populations. Read More

Colonic Diverticulosis. Is there a Genetic Component?

Maedica (Buchar) 2020 Mar;15(1):105-110

Pitesti Emergency Hospital, Arges, Romania.

Diverticular disease is a common condition among the elderly, with a steady increase in prevalence over time. Also, it has a temporal, geographic, and ethnic variation in incidence and prevalence, the genetic component having only recently been studied. For many years, environmental factors were the main link to the etiology. Read More

High-Resolution Colonic Manometry Pressure Profiles Are Similar in Asymptomatic Diverticulosis and Controls.

Dig Dis Sci 2020 May 12. Epub 2020 May 12.

Department of Surgery, Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, University of Auckland, Private Bag 92019, Auckland, 1142, New Zealand.

Background: Elevated colonic pressures and increased colonic activity have been thought to contribute to the pathophysiology of diverticulosis. However, evidence for this has been limited to low-resolution manometry, which is of limited accuracy.

Aims: This study aimed to evaluate the contraction pressures, counts, and distance of propagation recorded by high-resolution colonic manometry in diverticulosis vs control patients. Read More

Pyogenic Liver Abscess Secondary to Sigmoid Diverticulitis: An Unusual Presentation.

Case Rep Gastroenterol 2020 Jan-Apr;14(1):165-171. Epub 2020 Apr 17.

Southmead Hospital, North Bristol Trust, Bristol, United Kingdom.

Pyogenic liver abscesses, despite being a rare complication of diverticulitis and inflammatory bowel disease, are potentially serious life-threatening pathologies. Diverticular diseases can lead to disruption of the colonic mucosal barrier and can serve as a route for bacterial infection via the portal venous system. This patient had such a delayed presentation due to his atypical symptoms; he developed large abscess formation, detected by computed tomography, eventually requiring an ultrasound-guided drain followed by a colonoscopy.

Operative Surgery Is Rarely Required in the Acute Management of Diverticulitis in the Modern Era.

Am Surg 2020 Apr;86(4):308-312

From the *School of Medicine, Griffith University, Gold Coast, Australia and.

Acute diverticulitis is an emergency surgical condition that is commonly managed an acute surgical unit model. Operative surgery is indicated in selected situations including generalized peritonitis or fistulous disease; however, limited data exist on how borderline patients potentially needing surgery may be salvaged by close clinical management with modern interventional techniques. The aims of the study were to identify the operative surgery rates in acute diverticulitis and predictors for identifying patients with complicated diverticulitis. Read More

Portal venous gas as a radiological sign in a sigmoid diverticular abscess and its non-surgical management: a case report.

Ann R Coll Surg Engl 2020 May 6:e1-e3. Epub 2020 May 6.

Department of General Surgery, University Hospital Monklands, Airdrie, UK.

A 62-year old man who presented unwell with no specific symptoms or signs was found to have portal venous circulation gas complicating a small diverticular abscess. He was successfully managed with a course of antibiotics and had full resolution of symptoms, therefore avoiding the need for surgical intervention. While most commonly associated with bowel ischaemia and therefore often warranting emergency laparotomy, portal venous gas within the context of other underlying pathology often presents opportunities for delayed surgery or more conservative management options.

Preoperative oral antibiotics and surgical-site infections in colon surgery (ORALEV): a multicentre, single-blind, pragmatic, randomised controlled trial.

Lancet Gastroenterol Hepatol 2020 Apr 20. Epub 2020 Apr 20.

Colorectal Surgery Unit, Bellvitge University Hospital, Department of General and DIigestive Surgery-Colorectal Unit, University of Barcelona and Institut d'Investigacio Biomedica de Bellvitge, Barcelona, Spain.

Background: Previous studies have found that mechanical bowel preparation with oral antibiotics can reduce the incidence of surgical-site infections, but no randomised controlled trial has assessed oral antibiotics alone without mechanical bowel preparation. The aim of this study was to determine whether prophylaxis with oral antibiotics the day before elective colon surgery affects the incidence of postoperative surgical-site infections.

Methods: In this multicentre, pragmatic, randomised controlled trial (ORALEV), patients undergoing colon surgery were recruited from five major hospitals in Spain and 47 colorectal surgeons at these hospitals participated. Read More

Pneumoperitoneum, or the accumulation of free air in the peritoneal cavity, is commonly associated with visceral perforation, mandating emergent surgical intervention.

Colonic diverticular disease.

Nat Rev Dis Primers 2020 03 26;6(1):20. Epub 2020 Mar 26.

IBD Unit, Humanitas Clinical Research Hospital, Rozzano, Milan, Italy.

Diverticula are outpouchings of the intestinal wall and are common anatomical alterations detected in the human colon. Colonic diverticulosis (the presence of diverticula in the colon; referred to as diverticulosis) remains asymptomatic in most individuals but ~25% of individuals will develop symptomatic diverticulosis, termed colonic diverticular disease (also known as diverticular disease). Diverticular disease can range in severity from symptomatic uncomplicated diverticular disease (SUDD) to symptomatic disease with complications such as acute diverticulitis or diverticular haemorrhage.
