[Surgical therapy in diverticular disease of the large bowel].Schweiz Med Wochenschr 1977; 107(15):498-505SM
Operative proceeding, postoperative complications and postoperative mortality in 97 selective and 44 emergency operations for different states in diverticular disease are reported. In states of uncomplicated, chronically recurrent inflammation, one-stage resection is indicated. General condition of the patient and severe complicated diverticulitis may require two- or three-stage therapy. Our experience of 141 operations prompts us to propose early resection in states of chronically recurrent inflammation.
