Colonoscopy in the diagnosis and management of diverticular disease.
J Clin Gastroenterol. 2008 Nov-Dec; 42(10):1142-4.JC

Abstract

This review examines the role of colonoscopy in the evaluation of asymptomatic diverticulosis, segmental diverticular disease-associated colitis and acute diverticulitis. Asymptomatic acute diverticulitis, discovered during screening colonoscopy, is also discussed. In addition, the use of colonoscopy, both diagnostic and therapeutic, is compared to standard radiology studies for the management of acute diverticular bleeding.
