[Acute sigmoid diverticulitis: toward a more and more conservative treatment].
Rev Med Suisse. 2015 Sep 16; 11(486):1717-20.RM

Abstract

Acute diverticulitis of the colon is a frequent pathology especially among elderly people and people of Caucasian origin. The prevalence is higher among sedentary people and in people with low-fiber diet. Its diagnosis is mainly based on computed tomography (CT) that allows guiding the therapeutic management. Over the last few years the treatment of acute diverticulitis has passably changed with in particular an evolution toward a restriction of the elective and emergency surgery indications and a reduction of the antiobiotherapy and hospitalization number. This article reviews the epidemiology, the diagnostic tools, and the management of this frequent digestive pathology.
