Diverticulitis Slideshow

1. DIVERTICULAR DISEASE Dr Doha Rasheedy Ali Assistant Professor of Geriatrics and Gerontology Faculty of Medicine-Ain Shams University

2. Diverticulosis • Diverticula are procured herniations of the colonic mucosa and submucosa through the muscularis propria.(psuedo/bogus diverticulae) • Uninflamed and non-draining diverticula are asymptomatic. • They happen most ordinarily in the sigmoid colon and can change in size and number, albeit normally they are somewhere in the range of 5 and 10 mm in measurement. • Diverticulosis alludes to the presence of diverticula in a person who is asymptomatic, while diverticular sickness alludes to the presence of diverticula related with side effects, which happens in 20% of people with diverticula.

3. The study of disease transmission • Affects 5% to 10% of the populace more established than 45 years, and 80% of those more seasoned than 85 years. • Approximately 20% of patients with diverticula have a scene of suggestive diverticulitis. • Diverticular discharge is the second most basic reason for colonic seeping after vascular sores. • Acute diverticulitis: There is a male transcendence in patients more youthful than 50 years old, with equivalent sex conveyance after age 60 years

4. Holy person’s set of three • Cholelithiasis, diverticulitis, and hiatal hernia often happen together.

5. Pathophysiology 1. Site: basically the sigmoid colon yet may include the whole colon yet never the rectum. • Pathogenesis A. Colonic Motility 1. Expanded intraluminal pressure by division development, push mucosa through week point were vasa recta infiltrate muscularis propria between the taeniae coli 2. The interstitial cells of Cajal are believed to be liable for the age of moderate waves myoelectrical action expands division development.

6. B. Colonic Wall Changes – As people age, the elasticity of the collagen and muscle filaments of the colonic divider diminishes because of expanded cross-connecting of strange collagen strands and testimony of elastin in all layers of the colonic divider. – Extracellular grid corruption and redesigning is interceded to some degree by network metalloproteinases. Initiation of lattice metalloproteinases brings about the debasement of the extracellular grid, including collagens, noncollagenous glycoproteins, and proteoglycans – Patients with diverticular illness have been appeared to have an expansion in collagen combination, an expansion in tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases, and an abatement in the statement of a network metalloproteinase subtype that is liable for the corruption of collagen

7. C. Instinctive Hypersensitivity – there is a summed up condition of instinctive excessive touchiness in suggestive diverticular sickness that is like that seen in peevish entrail disorder. isn’t restricted to zones of the sigmoid with diverticula D. Aggravation – may show second rate colonic irritation that may take after fiery gut infection histologically. – vague mucosal aggravation, grave abscesses, a mononuclear cell invade in the lamina propria, and infrequent submucosal irritation or granulomas. At the point when these discoveries are available, the term segmental colitis is applied. Potential causes incorporate ischemia, changes in bacterial verdure, mucosal prolapse, and the presence of intraluminal antigens.

8. E. Fiber • Higher fiber in the eating routine prompts expanded stool mass and diminished colonic travel times. People from nations with high-fiber eats less will in general have bigger width colons, contrasted and those from nations with low fiber consumption. Having a bigger colonic measurement may weaken the segmental compressions of the colon that lead to higher intraluminal pressures

9. Instinctive extreme touchiness Colonic divider changes Inflammation, low fiber Colonic motility: expanded division Slow wave myoelectrica l action

10. Etiology  fiber diet  stool volume  intraluminal pressure  colonic divider strain strong hypertrophy, pulsion diverticula  rigidity  versatility  age

11. Test Explain: • Diverticula are not found in the rectum while so regular in the sigmoid colon • the early development of diverticula in patients with connective tissue issues, for example, Marfan disorder, Ehlers-Danlos condition, and polycystic kidney infection

12. Pathogenesis of confusions 1. On the off chance that the neck of a diverticulum is deterred, it might extend and prompt bacterial abundance and intrusion, frequently with hole, which is commonly walled off by the adjoining mesocolon or addendums epiploicae. 2. Variables that favor expanded colonic weights are adjusted autonomic action (seen with diminished exercise and neostigmine), initiation of narcotic receptors, and diminished mechanical extending of the colon because of a low-fiber diet. 3. Modified microbial structure inside the gut, bringing about persistent poor quality aggravation. 4. Nonsteroidal mitigating drugs (NSAIDs) have been related with diverticulitis and hole. The relationship of NSAIDs with diverticulitis is proposed to be identified with diminished prostaglandin union and direct effective mucosal harm. prostaglandins help in keeping up the colonic mucosal boundary by invigorating mucin and bicarbonate discharge and expanding mucosal blood stream, what’s more, NSAIDs are feeble acids that may bare epithelial cells, bringing about expanded mucosal porousness, ulceration, and the movement of microbes and poisons 5. an eating routine low in fiber; strands insurance by expanding stool weight and water content, fiber decreases colonic division pressures, which may ensure against hole 6. Red meat: incline to hole as related with apoptosis of colonic epithelial cells 7. Nut, corn and popcorn utilization didn’t expand the danger of diverticulosis or diverticular intricacies

13. Riskofperforation block Increased weight Low fiber Red meat NSAIDs Altered greenery

14. The clinical introduction of diverticulosis Depends on: 1. the area of the influenced diverticulum, 2. The seriousness of the incendiary cycle 3. the presence of difficulties incorporates • Left lower quadrant torment (70% of patients), • Change in entrail habits(typically looseness of the bowels) • Nausea and heaving • Constipation • Diarrhea • Flatulence • Bloating • The stool may contain follow blood, yet abundant draining is extremely unprecedented

15. The clinical introduction of Acute diverticulitis • Left lower quadrant torment (70% of patients), fever, leucocytosis= diverticulitis • can be either confounded or simple. • results from the miniature or macroperforation of a diverticulum, bringing about anything from subclinical irritation to feculent peritonitis • Patients may likewise whine of sickness and spewing (20–62%), obstruction (half), loose bowels (25–35%), and urinary side effects (10–15%).

16. Actual discoveries 1. In straightforward diverticulitis, restricted stomach delicacy in the region of the influenced diverticula and fever 2. Left lower quadrant delicacy is generally normal, as most diverticula happen in the sigmoid colon 3. Right lower quadrant delicacy, mirroring intense a ruptured appendix, can happen in right sided diverticulitis 4. In confounded diverticulitis with ulcer arrangement, a delicate discernible mass 5. Old patients and a few patients taking corticosteroids may have mediocre discoveries, even within the sight of serious diverticulitis. 6. Diffuse delicacy recommends free hole and peritonitis. Stomach extension and hypoactive inside sounds might be available if an ileus has created. In instances of free hole, hemodynamic unsteadiness may create, alongside an unbending midsection.

17. Muddled intense diverticulitis 1. Haemorrhage:which happens when the arteriole related with the diverticulum dissolves 2. Hole: – Generalized delicacy with bounce back and guarding on stomach assessment – The mid-region might be enlarged and tympanic to percussion – Bowel sounds can be reduced or missing 3. Fistula: Colovesical and, less regularly, colovaginal and colocutaneous fistulas may happen – colovaginal fistulas may give a purulent vaginal release – Colovesicular fistulas may present as urinary plot indications (eg, suprapubic, flank, or costovertebral point tenderness)(urosepsis) – Coloenteric (malabsorption bacterial excess)

18. • 3. Rehashed scenes of intense diverticulitis may prompt colonic deterrent • 4. Jaundice or hepatic abscesses propose pylephlebitis.

19. Entanglements Hemorrage Perforation. peritonitis fistula Repeated assaults Colonic block Hepatic ulcer

20. • Dysuria, urinary recurrence, and direness reflect bladder aggravation, while pneumaturia, fecaluria, or repetitive urinary parcel contamination recommends a colovesical fistula.

21. Clinical organizing of intense diverticulitis by Hinchey’s grouping • Stage I: Diverticulitis with phlegmon or restricted pericolic or mesenteric sore • Stage II: Diverticulitis with walled off pelvic, intraabdominal, or retroperitoneal canker • Stage III: Perforated diverticulitis causing summed up purulent peritonitis • Stage IV: Rupture of diverticula into the peritoneal pit with fecal tainting causing summed up fecal peritonitis

22. Hinchey’s characterization • Stage I diverticulitis is portrayed by little bound pericolonic abscesses, • stage II diseaseincludes bigger limited pericolonic assortments. • Stage III includes summed up suppurative peritonitis (perforateddiverticulitis); in light of the fact that the diverticular neck isgenerally deterred by a fecolith, peritoneal contaminationby defecation may not happen. • Stage IV demonstrates fecal peritonitis.

23. Analysis • history and actual assessment • research center tests • Computed tomography (CT) checking of the midsection • Contrast purification, utilizing water-solvent medium • Plain stomach radiograph arrangement with recumbent and upstanding movies

What Are a Diverticulum and Diverticula?

A diverticulum is a swelling pocket or sac that can frame on inside organs. In this slide show we will examine colonic diverticula, which are protruding sacs that push outward on the colon divider. Diverticula can happen anyplace in the colon, yet most regularly structure close to the furthest limit of the colon on the left side (sigmoid colon).

At the point when a diverticulum cracks and becomes contaminated, the condition is alluded to as diverticulitis.

What Is Diverticulitis?

In the event that a diverticulum becomes excited or tainted or the region around the diverticulum is swollen, it is called diverticulitis. On the off chance that the aggravation or contamination becomes sufficiently extreme, the diverticulum can burst, spreading microscopic organisms from the colon to the encompassing tissues, causing a disease called peritonitis, or shaping a pocket of contamination called a canker.

The state of having diverticula in the colon is called diverticulosis.

What Is Diverticulosis?

At the point when a patient has diverticula (protruding sacs) in the colon this is called diverticulosis, or diverticular illness.

Diverticular illness is normal in the Western world yet very uncommon in different territories.

How Common Is Diverticular Disease?

Diverticular illness is generally normal in industrialized nations where diets are lower in fiber and higher in handled starches. The U.S., England, and Australia, see a larger number of instances of diverticular illness than spots, for example, Asia or Africa, where diets are more extravagant in fiber.

Diverticular illness hazard increments with age.

Who Gets Diverticular Disease?

In the U.S., diverticular illness is found in over half of individuals beyond 60 years old. About 10%-25% of individuals with diverticular illness will encounter an irritation of a diverticulum, bringing about disease (diverticulitis).

The strong mass of the colon becomes thicker with age, and this may mirror the expanding constrains needed by the colon to take out defecation.

What Causes Diverticula?

It is accepted diverticula structure when there is expanded weight in the colon. This expanded weight has a few potential causes. Diets low in fiber cause hard stool and more slow “travel time” (the time it takes for stool to pass) through the colon, expanding pressure. Moreover, continued stressing during defecations likewise builds pressure. A few prescriptions, for example, pulse medications, “water pills” (diuretics), and opiate torment relievers, can expand stoppage and increment pressure in the colon. Any of these reasons for expanded weight can prompt the development of diverticula.

Diverticular sickness in created nations is accused generally for a low fiber diet.

How Does Diet Contribute To Diverticulosis?

Diets low in fiber cause stool to be more enthusiastically, and can prompt stoppage. Clogging can cause continued stressing during defecations, and can expand the weight in the colon, which can prompt the development of diverticula. Diets higher in fiber can forestall obstruction and stressing and may diminish the danger for diverticula development.

An eating routine high in fiber forestalls stoppage and in this way decline the danger for diverticular illness.

What Foods Are High In Fiber?

There are two sorts of dietary fiber expected to keep stool delicate and to forestall clogging. Solvent fiber breaks up in water and structures a delicate gel-like substance in the stomach related parcel. Insoluble fiber goes through the stomach related lot almost unaltered and can have a purgative impact, assisting stool with passing. Great wellsprings of fiber incorporate foods grown from the ground, entire grains, and vegetables, for example, beans or lentils.

Most patients with diverticular sickness have not many or no manifestations.

What Are the Most Common Symptoms of Diverticular Disease?

Numerous patients with diverticular sickness experience no manifestations. About 20% of patients will encounter a few indications that may incorporate stomach squeezing, swelling, stomach growing, rectal torment, and loose bowels.

A few patients with diverticular infection experience more genuine side effects and entanglements.

What Are the Serious Symptoms and Complications of Diverticulitis?

Now and again, patients may encounter extreme intricacies of diverticular infection, including:

Serious diverticulitis (disease of the diverticulum)

An assortment of discharge in the pelvis (a canker) because of crack of the diverticulum

Summed up contamination of the stomach depression (bacterial peritonitis)

Colonic obstacle

Seeping into the colon

Draining can happen with diverticulosis or diverticulitis, which might be discontinuous or ceaseless.

What Causes Bleeding With Diverticular Disease?

At the point when the irritation of the diverticulum dissolves into a vein at the base of the diverticulum (sac) this can prompt diverticular draining which can cause red, dull, or maroon-shaded blood and clumps to be passed when the patient has a defecation. The patient could possibly encounter stomach torment. The draining may occur on and off, or keep going for a few days consistently. In the event that there is dynamic dying, the patient is normally hospitalized. On the off chance that the draining is extreme it might expect treatment to stop the draining or medical procedure to eliminate the diverticula.

A few side effects are more genuine and the patient should be seen by a specialist.

When Should I Call the Doctor?

See your PCP on the off chance that you have any of the accompanying side effects and have been determined already to have diverticular infection:

Stomach torment Fever Diarrhea Vomiting Rectal dying (regardless of whether it stops all alone) – this might be an indication of diverticulosis, diverticulitis, or other genuine conditions.

A few side effects propose a confusion, and an outing to the crisis office might be justified.

When Should I Go to the Emergency Department?

Go to a crisis office promptly in the event that you have known diverticula or past episodes of diverticulitis and you experience any of the accompanying manifestations:

Extreme stomach torment

Persevering fever going with stomach torment

Extreme retching

Persevering stoppage with stomach expanding or swelling

Extreme torment or different side effects you recently experienced during a session with diverticulitis

When suspected, the determination of diverticular sickness can be affirmed by an assortment of tests.

How Is Diverticulitis Diagnosed?

Diverticula are analyzed by sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy, which are extensions with cameras used to peer inside the colon. Diverticula can likewise be determined to have a CT sweep of the midsection and pelvis or a barium X-beam (barium purification). During an intense erupt of diverticulitis a CT sweep might be utilized to analyze the degree of the disease.

Numerous patients don’t need any unique treatment as they have insignificant or no indications of diverticular illness.

What Is the Treatment For a Patient With Diverticular Disease With Minimum or No Symptoms?

While numerous patients with diverticular illness have not many to no indications, a high fiber diet and fiber supplements are prescribed to forestall stoppage and the arrangement of extra diverticula.

A few patients with diverticular illness experience stomach torment because of strong fit.

What Is the Medical Treatment For Mild Abdominal Pain Due To Diverticular Disease?

There are a few prescriptions that can treat gentle manifestations, for example, stomach torment because of muscle fit. Antispasmodic drugs include:

chlordiazepoxide (Librax)

dicyclomine (Bentyl)

hyoscyamine (Levsin)

atropine, scopolamine, phenobarbital, hyoscyamine (Donnatal)

diphenoxylate and atropine (Lomotil)

In the past specialists encouraged patients to evade corn, nuts, and seeds they thought may get stopped in one of the diverticula and cause complexities, in any case, there is no proof these nourishments bring on a specific issues. Counsel your PCP in the event that you have concerns.

Anti-infection agents are generally required when diverticulitis happens.

Are Antibiotics Used In the Treatment Of Diverticulitis?

On the off chance that you create diverticulitis (disease) because of an aggravated diverticula, anti-infection agents might be recommended for mellow indications, including:

ciprofloxacin (Cipro)

levofloxacin (Levaquin)

amoxicillin/clavulanic corrosive (Augmentin)

metronidazole (Flagyl)

doxycycline (Vibramycin)

On the off chance that you are encountering an intense assault of diverticulitis you might be encouraged to burn-through a fluid eating regimen and low fiber nourishments.

At the point when diverticulitis doesn’t react to clinical treatment, careful intercession is important.

When Is Surgery Necessary For a Patient With Diverticulitis?

In the event that diverticulitis doesn’t react to clinical treatment, medical procedure might be required. This typically comprises of depleting any assortments of discharge and precisely eliminating the section of the colon where the diverticula are found (normally the sigmoid colon). Tenacious draining diverticula require careful evacuation. Medical procedure is additionally essential in situations where the diverticula disintegrate into different organs, for example, the contiguous bladder (colovesical fistula), causing serious intermittent pee contaminations and entry of gas during pee.

Eating a high-fiber diet is the pillar of diverticular illness avoidance.

Could Diverticular Disease Be Prevented?

Diverticula are lasting once shaped and must be taken out precisely. There is right now no treatment to forestall diverticular infection. Nonetheless, eats less high in fiber are prescribed to expand stool mass and forestall clogging, which lessens pressure in the colon and may help keep more diverticula from shaping, or compounding of the condition.

Diverticula can be seen by means of barium x-beam (barium purification). The diverticula are viewed as barium filled pockets projecting from the colon divider. Direct representation of the colon can be accomplished through adaptable sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy. In patients associated with having a diverticular sore causing relentless agony and fever, ultrasound and CT output of the mid-region and pelvis should be possible to identify assortments of discharge.

A regularly harmed territory of the body is the foot, all the more explicitly, the toes (phalanxes). This frequently causes at least one of the toe issues that remains to be worked out (crack).

Injury or injury, for example, nailing the toe (stuck toe) or dropping a weighty item on the toe may cause a wrecked toe. The area of the toes (in the forward portion of the feet) make them the most probable piece of the foot to be harmed.

Delayed redundant developments, as in specific games exercises, can cause a kind of broken sort of broken toe called a pressure or hairline crack.

Torment, growing, or firmness will happen in a wrecked toe following injury. It could be hard to stroll because of the torment, particularly with a wrecked large toe. This is on the grounds that the enormous toe bears a large part of the heaviness of the body when strolling or rotating. A messed up little toe might be difficult yet typically doesn’t restrict the capacity to walk. Different side effects incorporate wounding of the skin around the toe and a bowed or distorted appearance of the toe if the wrecked bone is strange.

Image of Low Blood Pressure (Hypotension)Picture of Low Blood Pressure (Hypotension)

Low pulse (hypotension) is pressure so low it causes manifestations or signs because of the low progression of blood through the courses and veins. At the point when the progression of blood is too low to even think about delivering enough oxygen and supplements to crucial organs, for example, the cerebrum, heart, and kidney, the organs don’t work typically and might be briefly or forever harmed.

A person’s pulse is communicated as systolic/diastolic circulatory strain, for instance, 120/80.The systolic circulatory strain (the top number) speaks to the weight in the veins as the muscle of the heart agreements and siphons blood into them. The diastolic pulse (the base number) speaks to the weight in the corridors as the muscle of the heart loosens up after its withdrawal.

The scope of systolic pulse for most sound grown-ups falls somewhere in the range of 90 and 120 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). Typical diastolic pulse ranges somewhere in the range of 60 and 80 mm Hg. Current rules characterize typical pulse range as lower than 120/80.

Both are normal and habitually upset patients significantly, both as an unattractive scar just as a token of past injury or medical procedure. Skin break out scars result from the deficiency of basic collagen and versatile tissue from dermal aggravation related with skin inflammation, especially cystic skin inflammation.

Diverticulosis and diverticulitis are two conditions that happen in your internal organ (likewise called your colon). Together they are known as diverticular illness. Both offer the regular component of diverticula. Diverticula are at least one pockets or lumps that structure in the mass of your colon.

Diverticula resemble extended regions or air pockets that structure when you fill the inward container of a bicycle tire with an excessive amount of air. The expansion in weight from an excess of air being siphoned into the internal cylinder makes the air pocket structure where the elastic is the most fragile. Additionally, an expansion in weight inside the colon causes pockets or lumps (diverticula) to frame in debilitated regions of your colon’s dividers.

Diverticula can go from pea-size to a lot bigger. In spite of the fact that they can frame anyplace in the internal covering of your colon, they are most regularly found in your lower left-side, in the S-molded fragment of your colon called the sigmoid colon.

What’s the contrast among diverticulosis and diverticulitis?

Diverticulosis is basically the presence of these little lumps or pockets (diverticula) in your colon. They for the most part don’t make any side effects or need be dealt with. In any case, diverticulosis can prompt diverticulitis.

Diverticulitis is irritation (growing) and disease in at least one diverticula. You may feel torment, queasiness, fever and have different side effects. This is a significantly more genuine and possibly risky condition.

How normal is diverticulosis?

Diverticulosis is extremely normal in Western populaces and happens in 10% of individuals over age 40 and in half of individuals over age 60. The pace of diverticulosis increments with age, and it influences nearly everybody over age 80.

Who is well on the way to get diverticulosis and diverticulitis?

You are at expanded danger of diverticular infection (diverticulosis or diverticulitis) on the off chance that you:

Are more than 40 years old.

Are male.

Are overweight.

Eat a low-fiber diet. You don’t eat a great deal of natural products, vegetables, beans and vegetables, breads and grains or nuts.

Eat an eating routine high in fat and red meat.

Try not to work out.

Consume nonsteroidal mitigating medications (NSAIDs), like anti-inflamatory medicine, ibuprofen (Advil®, Motrin®) and naproxen (Aleve®); steroids; or narcotics.


What causes diverticulosis and diverticulitis?

Researchers aren’t generally certain what causes diverticulosis, yet they believe it’s brought about by not eating enough fiber. Not eating enough fiber causes a development of waste (stoppage) in your colon. Stoppage puts additional strain on the dividers of the colon. This expanded weight causes the little pockets — the diverticula — to frame in feeble regions in your colon.

Once more, researchers aren’t sure what causes diverticulitis, however they think the contamination begins because of the microbes in stool that gets driven into the diverticula. Another hypothesis is that the dividers of the diverticula itself disintegrate from the expanded tension on the colon dividers.

What are the side effects of diverticulosis?

Typically diverticulosis doesn’t bring about any problematic manifestations. In any case, a few people report:

Delicacy over the influenced zone.

Gentle stomach cramps.

Expanding or swelling.


Remember that having at least one of these side effects doesn’t mean you have diverticulosis. These side effects are normal indications of other gastrointestinal issues, for example, touchy gut condition, celiac illness, fiery inside sickness, an infected appendix, gallstones and stomach ulcers.

What are the indications of diverticulitis?

The manifestations of diverticulitis include:

Torment, delicacy or affectability in the left lower side of your midsection. Torment can begin mellow and increment more than a few days or please unexpectedly. (Agony is the most widely recognized indication.)


Sickness and additionally retching.


Spasms in the lower mid-region.

Blockage or the runs (more uncommon).

Rectal dying.
