MEDICAL PROBLEMS: BRIEF REVIEWS—DIVERTICULAR DISEASE OF THE INTESTINES
Michael J Katz

To request full article click here.

Diverticula are unnecessary pouches along the intestinal wall. Congenital diverticula are blind pouches of intes-tine, whereas acquired diverticula are places where the inner mucosal layer of intestine has pushed out through weak spots in the outer muscular layer. A person with intestinal diverticula has diverticulosis, and a low-fiber diet increases a person’s risk for developing diverticu-losis. Diverticular disease occurs when diverticula bleed or become infected. Mild diverticular disease can usually be treated with a high-fiber diet, but severe or repeated episodes of diverticular disease require medical treatment and often surgery . . .
