MEDINA-FERNANDEZ, Francisco Javier et al. New trends in the management of diverticulitis and colonic diverticular disease. Rev. esp. enferm. dig. [online]. 2015, vol.107, n.3, pp.162-170. ISSN 1130-0108.

Colonic diverticular disease is a chronic disorder presenting with a variety of abdominal symptoms and recurrent episodes of acute diverticulitis. It is close linked to age so its prevalence has risen notably during the last decades in western countries, increasing costs related to medical attention. Recently, several works have provided evidence to a series of measures that could improve the outcomes as well as reduce expenses associated to this process. The aim of the present review is to expose a view of the new trends in the management of diverticulitis and colonic diverticular disease, based on the highest clinical evidence available.

Keywords : Primary anastomosis; Colonic diverticular disease; Acute diverticulitis; Laparoscopic peritoneal lavage; Routine colonic evaluation.
