Internal Hemorrhoids Endoscopy

Diverticular disease is exceedingly common, and is seen as focal outpouchings of the colonic lumen projecting beyond the colonic wall on 2D axial and 2D MPR images. Three-dimensional endoluminal images demonstrate the internal orifices projecting from the colonic lumen (Fig. 14.2 and Fig. 14.3). Occasionally, muscular hypertrophy of diverticulosis can cause colonic wall thickening, but in these segments, we usually observe diverticula interposed throughout the regions of colonic wall thickening. Filling defects can be associated with diverticular disease. The most Fig. 14.2.a Diverticulosis in a patient with normal CT Colonography.

Diverticular Disease

Virtual Colonoscopy Diverticula

Diverticular disease is the most common colonic disease in the Western world, affecting 10-30 of people at age 50 years and 30-60 at age 80 years. However, the disease is asymptomatic in the majority of patients. Together with aging, longstanding low dietary fiber is the main predisposing factor for diverticular disease. Other etiological factors have been suggested, including increased consumption of red meat, fat, and salt. An early stage of the disease is the so-called pre-diverticulosis, which is characterized by thickening Table 13.1.

Protein Differences Between Omnivores And Vegetarians Or Vegans

A varied diet based on plant proteins is adequate, yielding growth and body maintenance results equivalent to a diet based on meat protein.39 The lower incidence of obesity, constipation, lung cancer, hypertension, coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes, gallstones, reduced risk of breast cancer, diverticular disease, colon cancer, calcium kidney stones, and osteoporosis appear to be obvious advantages particularly of the well balanced vegan diet for the elderly.3,39,40 Key et al.,40 (Table 11.1) show the protective effect of daily fresh fruit intake in ischemic heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, and lung cancer, and daily raw salad protection for ischemic heart disease. They also presented a higher incidence of breast cancer in the vegetarian women, but the confidence interval was broad. The smokers in their study population demonstrated a higher rate of ischemic heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, and, of course, lung cancer, to emphasize the disease problems associated...

Causes and Solutions to Overcome False Negatives and False Positives

Endoluminal Diverticular Disease 90 Diverticular Disease 110 References 114 Bruzzi et al. (Bruzzi et al. 2003) found that Buscopan should not be used routinely, but is useful in patients with diverticular disease. Taylor et al. (Taylor et al. 2003a) on the other hand found the effect of Buscopan also extends to those without diverticular disease. Diverticular Disease In case of diverticular disease, prominent semicircular folds, luminal narrowing and distortion impede good visualisation of the colonic surface resulting in difficult detection of polypoid lesions. In fact, as optimal detection of polyps is only achieved in well-distended segments of the colon, special care has to be taken when examining the involved segments with shortened haustrations and increased luminal tortuosity. In order not to interpret a polyp as a thickened fold, or vice versa, it is important to examine each semicircular fold by scrolling back and forth through the axial images. Imaging in both abdominal...

Diverticular Disease When diverticular disease progresses, further shortening, thickening and contraction of the muscular layer and taeniae cause an excess of mucosa, prolapsing into the colonic lumen as a redundant fold. This gives rise to a pseudopolypoid or non-neoplastic lesion (Yoshida et al. 1996). These polypoid lesions usually present with a broad base (Kelly 1991). Fig. 8.40a-d.

Diverticulitis is a complication of diverticulosis coli (sac-like mucosal projections through the muscular layers of the colonic wall). The neck of the diverticulum (*), as shown in Figures 52.3b and c, connects the normal colonic lumen (43) and the hypoechoic diverticulum (54). The associated edema of the colonic wall (74) is demonstrated by the CT performed on the same patient (Figs. 52.3a, d). The rectosigmoid junction is still well demarcated from the hypodense fatty tissue (black), while the colonic wall is indistinct in outline in the immediate proximity of the diverticula (54) due to inflammatory obliteration and thickening of the adjacent fatty tissue.

How to Interpret the Data Sets

Vulvar Lesion

Muscular hypertrophy from diverticulosis, sharp hairpin turns, colonic collapse, or marked fluid retention. In these areas, the 3D fly-through may be suspended, with transition to 2D MPR through a given region. In addition, in areas where multiple focal findings are being detected in 3D raising the concern for stool retention, evaluation in 2D MPR may allow a better overall characterization. Thus, given differences in image quality and anatomy which vary within or between patients, complementary use of 2D or 3D can be selectively utilized for improved visualization. In general, 3D endoscopic views can provide improved visualization of these morphological features. One exception would be the visualization of the highly characteristic stalk of a pendunculated lesion in a segment with marked muscular hypertrophy of diverticulosis. In this setting, 2D MPR may offer an advantage, due to the impaired endoscopic visualization within the thickened folds (Fig. 7.6). Fig. 7.6a,b. Pedunculated...

Absolute Contraindications

A patient with an acute abdomen should not be inflated with room air or CO2, and a consultation with a surgeon is most appropriate. Patients with active diverticulitis should not be referred to CT colonography. If an abscess or free air is suspected, a CT of the abdomen and pelvis can be performed with oral and IV contrast. Insufflation of the colon is contraindicated and may cause perforation and widespread peritonitis. Similarly, if a patient has recently undergone pelvic or abdominal surgery,

Intravenous Spasmolytics

The authors postulated that hyoscine butylbromide might relieve diverticulosis related spasm. More recently, data has been presented comparing hyoscine butylbromide and glucagon hydrochloride to no spasmolytic (Rogalla et al. 2004b). These authors found that both spasmolytics conveyed benefit, an effect most marked when using hyoscine butylbromide. In contrast, two previous studies failed to demonstrate any benefit when glu-cagon hydrochloride was administered prior to CT colonography (Yee et al. 1999 Morrin et al. 2002).

Meckel's diverticulum is a congenital small bowel diverticulum that is a remnant of the vitelline duct Colonic diverticulosis is a common condition among the elderly population and features acquired outpouchings of the bowel wall, characterized by herniation of the mucosa and submucosa through the muscularis propna.

The most common congenital anomaly of the GI tract consists of a diverticular sac caused by persistence of the vitelline duct or yolk stalk. The five 2's describe it 2 inches long, 2 feet from the ileocecal valve, 2 of the population, first 2 years of life, 2 types of epithelium. May be asymptomatic or may give rise to intussusception and intestinal obstruction, diverticulitis (indistinguishable from appendicitis), or bleeding. p.95

The answer is e. (Tintinalli, 5 e, pp 539-541.) The patient has a past medical history of appendectomy, which predisposes him to adhesions and small bowel obstruction (SBO). Other etiologies for SBO include incarcerated hernia, stricture, and malignancy. The high-pitched bowel sounds, the peristaltic rushes, and the tympany with percussion are physical findings when air is under pressure in viscera and intestinal fluid is present (i.e., obstruction). The hallmarks of intestinal obstruction are abdominal pain, distension, vomiting, and obstipation. Abdominal radiographs may reveal dilated loops of bowel in a ladderlike pattern and air-fluid levels. Large bowel obstruction (LBO) is due to malignancy, diverticulitis, and volvulus. A mnemonic for abdominal distension is the 6 Fs Fat, Fluid, Food, Fetus, Feces, and Flatus.


Low fiber intake and poor diet can cause constipation. Medications also can lead to constipation (Table 21.1). Constipation is associated with many metabolic and endocrine disorders, including hypocalcemia, renal failure, hy-pothyroidism, hyperparathyroidism, and diabetes.1 Neurological disorders can impede normal GI movement multiple sclerosis, strokes, and spinal cord injury can cause constipation. Malfunction or anatomical abnormalities, including colitis, cancer, diverticular disease, and rectal prolapse, can cause constipation.
