This modification also implied the use of new treatment strategies, such as CT-guided percutaneous drainage of abscesses. The original Hinchey classification for perforated diverticulitis and its modifications are mainly represented in stage C. Yet, new insights in the natural history of the disease, the emergence of the computed tomography scan, and new treatment modalities plead for evolving classifications. Diverticulitis in the United States: Moreover, these baseline findings are crucial if the patient deteriorates during conservative treatment.

It is the combination of specific symptoms that still form the basis for a differential diagnosis and the indication for additional examinations. These new diverticklitis resulted in a more individualized and conservative approach to mild diverticular disease, making the extent of subjective complaints even more important [ 212 ]. In Januarythese beneficial effects were confirmed by a randomized controlled trial; the short-term results showed that a laparoscopic approach delivered a hnichey In most classifications, post-inflammatory changes like stenosis or fistulas are not included.

Table 5 CT findings by Ambrosetti et al. Mortality after acute surgery for complications of diverticular disease of the sigmoid colon is almost exclusively due to patient related factors.

Yet, this does not discount the initial subjective complaints. The current classifications of diverticular disease are based on clinical, radiological, or operative findings, yet most lack a translation into daily clinical practice. Cost structure of laparoscopic and open sigmoid colectomy for diverticular disease: Is there a need for another classification? CT scan is of superior diagnostic value in case of stenosis or fistula. These recommendations drawn up by the American Society of Colorectal Surgeons in have recently been challenged.

Acute left colonic diverticulitis—compared performance of computed tomography and water-soluble contrast enema: British Journal of Surgery 1January In one modification, the Stage I has been divided into Ia — Phlegmon and Ib — Confined to pericolic or mesenteric abscess. The wide spectrum of diverticular disease warrants a differentiated approach to the different manifestations. Therefore, laparoscopic sigmoid resection may well be the procedure of choice for patients requiring elective resection for diverticular disease.

To current date, the availability of the MRI and experienced radiologists are often limited and therefore not suitable for routine use. Early elective surgery of acute diverticulitis of the colon. Additional advantages of MRI over CT scan are its better visualization of fistulae and the possibility of virtual colonoscopy, thereby making invasive colonoscopy divertuculitis.

Hughes classification Hughes et al.

Hinchey classification for diverticulitis

Same hospitalization resection for acute diverticulitis. Routine colonoscopy divulges the majority finds of asymptomatic diverticular disease. Unlike diverticulosis the condition of having out-pouchingsdiverticulitis is not typically associated with active bleeding. Colorectal Disease 12 9: The much more detailed information provided by CT scans led earlier to modifications of the original Hinchey classification.

Hinchey Classification is used to describe perforations of the colon due to diverticulitis. However, if it is not contained it leads to faecal contamination of the peritoneal cavity faecal peritonitis which is often fatal. CT scan images resembling the four Hughes stages.

In recent years, magnetic resonance imaging MRI has gained popularity, because it lacks the ionizing radiation of a CT scan, yet matches its sensitivity and specificity [ 19 ]. There are several complications diveritculitis can arise from diverticulitis, and one of the more serious complications of this is perforation of the bowel. In addition, high-risk patients, divertiuclitis as those immune compromised, using of NSAIDs and other immune suppressants or experiencing chronic renal failure, might be good candidates for early elective sigmoid resection.

InWasvary et al. The proposed three-stage model provides a renewed and comprehensive classification system for diverticular disease, incorporating up-to-date imaging and future treatment modalities. Stage Viverticulitis includes non-acute complications of diverticular disease, such as symptomatic stenosis, fistulas to hollow organ, recurrent self-limiting diverticular bleeding, and incapacitating complaints.

A second analysis using manual cross reference search of the bibliographies of relevant articles located studies not found in the first search.

Its presentation may hincjey greatly per individual patient, from symptomatic diverticulosis to perforated diverticulitis. Large abscesses C1 and perforated disease C4 are severe complications, but also massive diverticular C3 bleeding and total bowel obstruction C2 are entitled to acute interventions. Indications for elective sigmoid resection in diverticular disease.

Despite modifications proposed by multiple authors, the traditional classification is still widely used. The surgical management hknchey acute diverticulitis. A three-stage model is advanced for a renewed and comprehensive classification system for diverticular disease, incorporating up-to-date imaging and treatment modalities.
