The surgical management of perforated sigmoid diverticulitis and generalised peritonitis is challenging. Surgical resection is the established standard of care. However, there is debate as to whether a primary anastomosis (PA) or a Hartmann's procedure (HP) should be performed. The aim of the present study was to perform a review of the literature comparing HP to PA for the treatment of perforated sigmoid diverticulitis with generalised peritonitis.

No consensus has been reached in the management of perforated diverticulitis. Many surgeons opt for a Hartmann's procedure to avoid the risk of an anastomotic leak. We hypothesize that resection with ...
It is still controversial whether the optimal operation for perforated diverticulitis with peritonitis is primary anastomosis (PRA) or nonrestorative resection (NRR). The aim of this systematic review...
Several studies have documented the feasibility of a laparoscopic Hartmann's procedure for complicated diverticulitis not amenable to an anastomosis with proximal diversion (1). Others have also shown...
The study aimed to evaluate the QoL in patients who underwent elective surgery for uncomplicated diverticulitis using a recently developed diverticulitis quality of life questionnaire (DV-QoL).
The Low Anterior Resection Syndrome (LARS) severely affects quality of life (QoL) after rectal cancer surgery. There are no data about functional complaints after sigmoid cancer surgery. We investigat...
The aim of the study is to compare patient outcome following standard of care (Hartmann's or resection with anastomosis and defunctioning stoma) and a 'new therapy' (laparoscopic lavage al...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether laparoscopic lavage changes the rate of severe complications in patients with acute perforated diverticulitis who traditionally are treate...
The aim of this study is to evaluate clinical results and effect on health and well-being in patients operated for perforated diverticulitis with purulent peritonitis by laparoscopic lavag...
The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy (by assessing the clinical success of treatment) of intravenous antibiotic therapy with ertapenem in patients with acute attacks of sig...
Half of all Americans over 60 years of age have diverticulitis of the colon. Over the last decade, the use of elective colon resection has increased by more than 50%, and diverticulitis is...
Tumors or cancer of the SIGMOID COLON.
Pathological processes in the SIGMOID COLON region of the large intestine (INTESTINE, LARGE).
Inflammation of a DIVERTICULUM or diverticula.
Complete or partial surgical removal of the prostate. Three primary approaches are commonly employed: suprapubic - removal through an incision above the pubis and through the urinary bladder; retropubic - as for suprapubic but without entering the urinary bladder; and transurethral (TRANSURETHRAL RESECTION OF PROSTATE).
Diseases of the DIVERTICULUM often due to infection and/or inflammation (DIVERTICULITIS).
