Of the 34 grade IV patients, 24 A multicenter randomized clinical trial of primary anastomosis or Hartmann’s procedure for perforated left colonic diverticulitis with purulent or fecal peritonitis. In the case of a purulent peritonitis, either laparoscopic sigmoid resection with primary anastomosis with or without defunctioning stoma or even laparoscopic lavage may be considered in selected cases.

Preventive measures are thought to be more successful by several authors, high-fiber diet, and prevention of obesity and treatment of comorbidities are the usual ingredients [ 22 — 24 ]. CT findings by Ambrosetti et al.

Hinchey Classification

The wide use of CT scans initiated modifications to the Hinchey classification, but also several new radiological classifications for diverticular disease were developed. Open Hartmann’s procedure vs. This modification broadened the original Hinchey classification by not only addressing perforated disease, but also including mild clinical disease stage 0.

Diverticulitiz colonoscopy after left-sided acute uncomplicated diverticulitis: Especially when an associated abscess is suspected, a CT scan can be very helpful to demonstrate its presence.

In spite of these limitations, we conclude that the mNeff classification, together with clinical data on SIRS and comorbidity, can help to define an effective and safe management protocol for any patient diagnosed with AD.

Stage B disease forms indications for elective sigmoid resections, preferably laparoscopically.

Recently, several works have provided evidence to a series of measures that could clasificacjon the outcomes as well as reduce expenses associated to this process. Resection and primary anastomosis with proximal diversion instead of Hartmann’s: Diagnosis and treatment of diverticular disease: This modification also implied the use of new treatment strategies, such as CT-guided percutaneous drainage of abscesses.

Review of current classifications for diverticular disease and a translation into clinical practice

Practice parameters for sigmoid diverticulitis. The Standards Task Force. Outpatient treatment of uncomplicated acute diverticulitis: It is not generally performed to make diagnosis of diverticulosis but this type exam when done other reasons may identify diverticula [ En DA-C Hinchey IV casi todos los autores coinciden en la necesidad de resecar el colon afecto, inflamado y perforado.

Laparoscopic sigmoid resection for diverticulitis decreases major morbidity rates: Hincgey then, several series have been published, but evidence from a randomized controlled trial is still to be awaited [ 30 ].

Additionally, a difference was made between confined pericolic inflammation or phlegmon stage Ia and a confined pericolic abscess stage Ib.
