[Coincidence of sigmoid cancer and sigmoid diverticulitis].Zentralbl Chir. 1991; 116(5):301-9.ZC
From 1985 to 1989 265 patients with a carcinoma of the sigmoid or sigmoid diverticulitis have been operated in our clinic. 23 of the treated patients synchronously had a carcinoma and a diverticulitis. The carcinoma in these cases was found to be significantly more frequent in a stage T1 or T2. We also found a significantly higher rate of perforations in this group of patients.
