Abstract

Diverticular disease is a common finding in Western countries with an increasing prevalence with age. Many patients with the disorder remain asymptomatic. However, up to 30% of those affected may show clinical signs including pain, bleeding, obstruction, abscess, fistulae and perforation. The purpose of this chapter is to review the epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, diagnostic regimens and treatment options for this disorder.
