Diverticulitis: Is Surgery Always Necessary?

Associated with over 200,000 US hospitalizations a year, diverticulitis is the most common consequence of diverticular disease. It occurs when pouches that form in the wall of the colon or intestine become inflamed and may cause intense pain. Dr. James Yoo, Chief of the Division of Colon and Rectal Surgery at Tufts Medical Center, provides an overview of surgical and nonsurgical treatments for diverticulitis along with two case studies that illustrate the clinical application of these treatments.

"When would you plan elective sigmoid colon resection for a localized perforation, after CT guided drainage is done.

Is there a role of laparoscopic irrigation and drainage of a localized diverticulitis with perforation."

"I noticed that this was not the patient's initial episode of diverticulitis, hence this new admission would be a recurrence. I mention this because you stated that following an initial bout of diverticulitis a recurrent episode of diverticulitis occurs in 20-30% of patients. Thus Indicating that following occurrence #1 his chance would be 20-30% for another event of diverticulitis down the road, since this is his second episode, does his chance of developing chronic diverticulitis increase substantially?"
