Bilateral Epiploic Appendagitis: A Rather Benign but Diagnostically Challenging Cause of Acute Abdominal Pain.

Cureus 2020 Apr 30;12(4):e7897. Epub 2020 Apr 30.

General Surgery, Hamad Medical Corporation, Doha, QAT.

Epiploic appendagitis (EA) is a rare and often misdiagnosed cause of acute abdominal pain. It is a benign and self-limited condition but mimics other underlying causes of acute abdominal pain like acute diverticulitis, acute appendicitis, acute cholecystitis, etc. Inaccurate diagnosis can lead to iatrogenic adverse outcomes.

Acute diverticulitis: Key features for guiding clinical management.

Eur J Radiol 2020 Jul 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 diverticular disease.

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

IBD Center, Department of Gastroenterology, Humanitas Clinical and Research Center - IRCCS -, Rozzano, 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.

Critical Issues on Diverticular Disease.

J Gastrointestin Liver Dis 2019 Dec 19;28(suppl. 4):35-38. Epub 2019 Dec 19.

University of Newcastle, Faculty of Health and Medicine, School of Medicine and Public Health, Australian Gastrointestinal Research Alliance, Callaghan NSW 2308, Australia.

In this session diverse critical issues in diverticular disease were considered, including "In or outpatient management of uncomplicated diverticulitis?", "Segmental colitis associated with diverticulosis: what is it?"and "Diverticular inflammation is a risk factor for colorectal cancer?". The conclusions drawn are outlined in the statements but in summary, outpatient management is safe in selected patients, as long as correct diagnosis and stage are assured, and this can allow a cost effective treatment. Non-antibiotic management is also safe but should be confined as an outpatient treatment in carefully selected patients. Read More

Authors:
D Macía-Suárez

Radiologia 2019 Nov - Dec;61(6):506-509. Epub 2019 Jul 1.

Complexo Hospitalario Universitario de Santiago de Compostela, Santiago de Compostela, A Coruña, España. Electronic address:

The growing demand for computed tomography studies clashes with the restrictions on the use of ionizing radiation that are being reflected more and more clearly in good practice guidelines and legislation. One paradigmatic example is the diagnosis of acute diverticulitis, for which a increasing amount of computed tomography studies are being demanded with the justification that they are clinically necessary and more reliable than ultrasound studies. The present paper reviews the scientific evidence about the diagnostic validity of ultrasonography and computed tomography in the diagnosis of acute diverticulitis of the colon. Read More

Long-term quality of life after conservative treatment versus surgery for different stages of acute sigmoid diverticulitis.

Int J Colorectal Dis 2018 Mar 3;33(3):317-326. Epub 2018 Feb 3.

Department of General-, Visceral- and Vascular Surgery, Charité University Medicine Berlin, Campus Benjamin Franklin, Hindenburgdamm 30, 12200, Berlin, Germany.

Purpose: It is controversial whether patients fare better with conservative or surgical treatment in certain stages of acute diverticulitis (AD), in particular when phlegmonous inflammation or covered micro- or macro-perforation are present. The aim of this study was to determine long-term quality of life (QoL) for AD patients who received either surgery or conservative treatment in different stages.

Methods: We included patients treated for AD at the University Hospital Grosshadern, Munich, Germany, between January 1, 2000, and December 31, 2010. Read More

Gamma-glutamyltransferase, possible novel biomarker in colon diverticulosis: a case-control study.

J Enzyme Inhib Med Chem 2018 Dec;33(1):428-432

c Faculty of Medecine , Titu Maiorescu University , Bucharest , Romania.

The gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) is recognized in medical practice as a useful indicator for the detection of liver lesions, especially those induced by the excessive consumption of alcoholic or cholesterol-associated drinks. The present study, although it includes a very small number of cases diagnosed with colon diverticulosis-diverticulitis associated with polyposis at the same intestinal level, identifies the presence of increased circulating concentrations of this enzyme in the serum. Its serum levels are tracked "dynamically" throughout a year after the diagnosis and start of the therapy. Read More

Acute diverticulitis and surgical treatment.

Minerva Chir 2018 Apr 23;73(2):163-178. Epub 2018 Jan 23.

Unit of Coloproctology, Hospital Vithas-Nisa 9 de Octubre, Valencia, Spain.

Diverticulitis is a common condition in industrialized countries and an important cause of hospital admissions. Its growing trend is a challenge for the surgeons who perform emergency surgery, because approximately 15-25% of the patients will require surgery, being the surgical management of complicated acute diverticulitis controversial. The past decade has seen a paradigm shift in the treatment of sigmoid diverticulitis based on new epidemiological studies and refinement of surgical techniques that has produced a reassessment of our guidelines.

Is there a role for procalcitonin in differentiating uncomplicated and complicated diverticulitis in order to reduce antibiotic therapy? A prospective diagnostic cohort study.

Swiss Med Wkly 2017 23;147:w14555. Epub 2017 Nov 23.

Department of Internal Medicine, Kantonsspital Olten soH, Switzerland.

Aims Of The Study: While studies show that antibiotic treatment for uncomplicated diverticulitis seems to have no benefit, most experts advocate antimicrobial therapy for complicated diverticulitis. However, even for uncomplicated diverticulitis, most clinicians are very reluctant to withhold antibiotics. Biomarkers could help to guide antibiotic therapy as this approach has been shown to be effective for acute respiratory infections. Read More

Predictive factors on CT imaging for progression of uncomplicated into complicated acute diverticulitis.

Int J Colorectal Dis 2017 Dec 26;32(12):1693-1698. Epub 2017 Oct 26.

Department of Surgery, Academic Medical Center, Meibergdreef 9, 1100 DD, PO Box 22660, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Purpose: Since outpatient treatment and omitting antibiotics for uncomplicated acute colonic diverticulitis have been proven to be safe in the majority of patients, selection of patients that may not be suited for this treatment strategy becomes an important topic. The aim of this study is to identify computed tomography (CT) imaging predictors for a complicated disease course of initially uncomplicated acute diverticulitis.

Methods: CT imaging from a randomized controlled trial (DIABOLO study) of an observational vs. Read More
