First Department of Surgery, Laikon General Hospital, School of Medicine, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens , Athens , Greece.

The transverse colon is a particularly rare site for a diverticulum to develop, with only few reports of solitary diverticula described in the literature. Among the reported complications, colocutaneous fistulas appear relatively infrequently. We describe the case of an 80-year-old woman with a solitary diverticulum of the transverse colon presenting as acute diverticulitis with abscess formation in the epigastric region. 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

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.

What radiologists should know about tomographic evaluation of acute diverticulitis of the colon.

Radiol Bras 2017 Mar-Apr;50(2):126-131

Specialist in Coloproctology, Preceptor at the Universidade Federal do Triângulo Mineiro (UFTM), Uberaba, MG, Brazil.

Acute diverticulitis of the colon is a common indication for computed tomography, and its diagnosis and complications are essential to determining the proper treatment and establishing the prognosis. The adaptation of the surgical classification for computed tomography has allowed the extent of intestinal inflammation to be established, the computed tomography findings correlating with the indication for treatment. In addition, computed tomography has proven able to distinguish among the main differential diagnoses of diverticulitis. Read More

J Med Case Rep 2017 Apr 13;11(1):106. Epub 2017 Apr 13.

Division of Critical Care, Department of Medicine, London Health Sciences Centre, Western University, London, ON, Canada.

Background: Patients with diverticulitis are predisposed to hepatic abscesses via seeding through the portal circulation. Hepatic abscesses are well-documented sequelae of diverticulitis, however instances of progression to hepato-bronchial fistulization are rare. We present a case of diverticulitis associated with hepatic abscess leading to hepato-bronchial fistulization, which represents a novel disease course not yet reported in the literature. Read More

Surgery for diverticulitis in the 21st century: recent evidence.

Minerva Gastroenterol Dietol 2017 Jun 24;63(2):158-162. Epub 2017 Feb 24.

Department of Surgery, S-SPIRE Center, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA, USA.

Sigmoid diverticulitis is an increasingly common disease in Western countries. As technology has led to increased knowledge about the disease and options for treatment, management strategies have become less certain. In previous years, the rationale for early elective surgery was largely preventive, due to concern that diverticulitis recurrence would result in increased risk of sepsis or the need for a colostomy.

Colonoscopy after Hinchey I and II left-sided diverticulitis: utility or futility?

Am J Surg 2016 Nov 7;212(5):837-843. Epub 2016 May 7.

Department of Surgery, Madigan Army Medical Center, 9040 Jackson Ave, Tacoma, WA 98431, USA.

Background: Modern 64- to 128-slice computed tomography (CT) scanners have questioned the need for routine colonoscopy after hospital admission for presumed uncomplicated diverticulitis.

Methods: This is a retrospective review of all patients (>18 years) who underwent planned colonoscopy after admission for Hinchey I or II acute diverticulitis (January 2009 to January 2014). The findings on the final radiologist report were then correlated with the colonoscopy results. Read More

Management of Diverticular Disease in Scandinavia.

J Clin Gastroenterol 2016 10;50 Suppl 1:S50-2

*Department of Gastrointestinal Surgery, Akershus University Hospital, Lørenskog †Faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo ‡Department of Gastrointestinal Surgery, Oslo University Hospital, Oslo, Norway.

Throughout the last century, the incidence of diverticular disease of the colon has increased tremendously in industrialized countries; nevertheless, the management of this condition is still controversial. Although several international guidelines for the management of diverticular disease are based on the same evidence, the recommendations differ greatly, emphasizing the lack of high-quality prospective studies. In Scandinavia, official guidelines for the management of diverticular disease exist only in Denmark. Read More
