7. 7 Background What are colonic diverticula?
false diverticulum or pseudodiverticulum
8. 8 Normal Cecum
9. 9 Diverticula
10. 10 Pathophysiology
11. 11 Diverticulitis
12. 12 Uncomplicated Diverticulitis
13. 13 Complicated Diverticulitis
14. 14 Classification of Diverticulitis Hinchey Stage(11)
Stage I: Pericolic or mesenteric abscess Stage II: Walled-off pelvic abscess Stage III: Generalized purulent peritonitis Stage IV: Generalized fecal peritonitis
15. 15 Theories on RS Theories on RS in the East tend to mirror those of LS in the West:
an increase in incidence of RS in Far East(4)
this has correlated with a decrease in fiber intake(5), especially in urban centers(6)
false diverticula just as in LS in the West(8)
16. 16 Epidemiology of RS RS disease is quite common in the Far East.
Estimates of >70% of diverticular disease in Japan, Korea, China, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand(1). Other estimates put it as high as 80%(9).
Incidence quotes for RS diverticulitis range from 1:34(10) to 1:300(7) appendectomies.
