Hospitalization or Ambulatory Treatment of Acute Diverticulitis

2014-07-23 21:09:55 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of 01DIVER is to evaluate efficacy and safety of a home treatment protocol for non complicated diverticulitis compared with management in the hospital. The hypothesis is that a ambulatory treatment with oral antibiotic and progressive introduction of diet is not inferior to the conservative management in hospital in patients with acute not complicated sigmoid diverticulitis, shown by contrast enhanced CT scan. Patients are prospectively randomized to conservative antibiotic treatment either to ambulatory or to hospital treatment.

Rifaximin Delayed Release for the Prevention of Recurrent Acute Diverticulitis and Diverticular Complications.

Colonic microbiota changes may play a key role in the pathogenesis of acute diverticulitis. A previous proof-of-concept study suggests that rifaximin, a low-absorbable oral antibiotic, may...

Evaluation of Efficacy of Mesalamine in the Long-term Prevention of Diverticulitis Flares

The purpose of this study is to determine whether mesalamine is effective vs. placebo in the prevention of diverticulitis flares in a 24-months follow-up. The primary end-point of the stu...

Diagnostic Accuracy of Bedside Ultrasound in Suspected Acute Diverticulitis

Colonic diverticulitis is a common clinical condition in patients presenting to the Emergency Department (ED) with abdominal pain. The diagnosis and staging of patients with suspected acut...

Derivation and external validation of risk algorithms for cerebrovascular (re)hospitalisation in patients with type 2 diabetes: two cohorts study.

Cerebrovascular disease is one of more typical reasons for hospitalisation and re-hospitalisation in people with type 2 diabetes. We aimed to derive and externally validate two risk prediction algorit...

Antibiotics versus No Antibiotics for the Treatment of Acute Uncomplicated Diverticulitis: Review of the Evidence and Future Directions.

Acute diverticulitis occurs in 25% of individuals with diverticular disease and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality rates. Disease severity is classified as uncomplicated or complic...

Changing theories on the pathogenesis and risk factors for diverticulitis.

Diverticulitis was thought to be a simple complication of an even simpler disease (diverticulosis), but may in fact result from an entirely new set of complex pathologies. Considering diverticulitis i...

Management of acute uncomplicated diverticulitis without antibiotics: a systematic review, meta-analysis, and meta-regression of predictors of treatment failure.

Diverticulitis is a common complication of diverticular disease of the colon. While complicated diverticulitis often warrants intervention, acute uncomplicated diverticulitis (AUD) is usually managed ...

Association Between Obesity and Weight Change and Risk of Diverticulitis in Women.

There is little evidence that adiposity associates with diverticulitis-especially among women. We conducted a comprehensive evaluation of obesity, weight change, and incidence of diverticulitis in a l...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Information systems, usually computer-assisted, designed to store, manipulate, and retrieve information for planning, organizing, directing, and controlling administrative activities associated with the provision and utilization of ambulatory care services and facilities.

Inflammation of a DIVERTICULUM or diverticula.

Health care services provided to patients on an ambulatory basis, rather than by admission to a hospital or other health care facility. The services may be a part of a hospital, augmenting its inpatient services, or may be provided at a free-standing facility.

Diseases of the DIVERTICULUM often due to infection and/or inflammation (DIVERTICULITIS).

Inflammation of the COLONIC DIVERTICULA, generally with abscess formation and subsequent perforation.
