The virus' capacity for dissemination and its virulence are responsible for significant morbidity and mortality. The initial lack of knowledge of the pathogen and of the pathophysiology underlying the potential severity of the disease, particularly in the respiratory tract, led to numerous therapeutic attem...

Preoperative vs. Postoperative Bowel Function and Quality of Life in Patients Undergoing Elective Sigmoidectomy vs. Conservative Management for Recurrent Uncomplicated Diverticulitis (FRESCO-Trial)

Summary: The decision to perform a surgical intervention or not after recovery from repeated uncomplicated episodes of acute diverticulitis remains controversial and the literature shows different conflicting approaches based on low-quality evidence.The goal of this trial is to achieve a better understanding of the impact of surgery on bowel function and QoL in patients with recurrent uncomplicated sigmoid...

Combination of Curcumin and Berberine Therapy in the Treatment of Post Acute Diverticulitis (AD) Symptomatic Uncomplicated Diverticular Disease (SUDD)

Summary: Curcumin (Cur), an active ingredient of the Indian herb Rhizoma Curcuma Longa, has been extensively studied in the context of inflammatory diseases. Studies have demonstrated its efficacy in reducing chemically induced colitis in animal models and in humans. Berberine is a phytochemical derived from plants such as coptis chinensis, goldenseal and scutellaria. These herbal remedies have been used i...

A Pilot Study to Test Rapid Acquisition of Point of Care Ultrasound for Various Applications

Objective: The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility of rapid acquisition of point of care 3D ultrasound in obtaining abdominal and/or pelvic images. The study will use a newly developed acquisition method and post-processing technique to create three dimensional image models of the abdomen and/or pelvis. Study activities and population group. The study population will be a convenience sample of p...

Development of Machine Learning Models for the Prediction of Complications After Colonic, Colorectal and Small Intestine Anastomosis in Psychiatric and Non-psychiatric Patient Collectives (P-Study)

Summary: Our study aims to lay the basis for a predictive modeling service for postoperative complications and prolonged hospital stay in patients suffering from psychiatric diseases undergoing colorectal surgery. Furthermore, we aim to investigate the impact of preoperative Risk factors, psychiatric and psychosomatic diseases on the outcomes of colorectal surgery and the complications after colorectal sur...

The Damage Control Strategy for the Treatment of Perforated Diverticulitis of the Sigmoid Colon With Diffuse Peritonitis - a Retrospective, Multicenter, Transnational Cohort Study

Summary: The best approach for the treatment of perforated diverticulitis of the sigmoid colon is still under debate. Concurrent techniques are 1) resection with primary colorectal anastomosis with or without additional loop ileostomy; 2) end colostomy (Hartmann´s procedure); 3) Damage control strategy; 4) laparoscopic lavage and placement of a drainage. It is hypothesized, that the use of the damage contr...

Quality of Life and Surgery in Diverticular Disease

Summary: Diverticular disease is one of the most common diseases of the gastrointestinal tract in industrial countries. Prevalence and admission rate due to diverticular disease increases. Symptomatic patients usually present with acute uncomplicated or complicated diverticulitis. Recurrence rates of complicated diverticulitis are estimated to 10-30%. Recurrences, chronic complications or persisting pain, ...

Outcomes of Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) in Uncomplicated Diverticulitis: A Pilot Study

Summary: Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) is an established treatment for Clostridium difficile (C. diff) infection refractory to medical management. As C. diff infection usually arises due to significant disturbances in the gut microbiome, FMT is typically performed to restore a healthy microbiome among affected patients who have failed other treatments. Diverticulitis is a major, and often recurren...

Role of Protective Stoma After Primary Anastomosis for Generalized Peritonitis Due to Perforated Diverticulitis: a Prospective Multicenter Randomized Trial

Summary: This study is designed to be a multicentre, prospective, comparative, randomised trial, evaluating the efficacy of two surgical strategies for the treatment of generalised peritonitis due to perforated diverticulitis. Results will be analysed according to an intention to treat principle (after selection and patient consent). Immediately before surgery, the patient will be randomly assigned to sigm...

Long-term Outcomes of Patients With Diverticulitis and Risk Factors for Recurrence: a Multi-center Cohort Study

Summary: In the Emergency Department (ED), patients with acute diverticulitis usually present with acute abdominal pain. Sometimes, or mostly, it is an exclusive diagnosis, meaning that the diagnosis would be made after other emergent and acute abdomens are excluded. The recurrent diverticulitis cost medical burden. The studies focusing on potential risk factors of recurrent diverticulitis, especially for ...

Light Therapy in Patients Undergoing Appendectomy for Appendicitis, Colon Resection for Diverticulitis, or Treatment of Pneumonia

Summary: Our data suggest that modulating the characteristics of light carries the potential to modify the host response to injury and critical illness and thus, improve outcome. The ability to modify the host response to the stress of major operations and sepsis carries immense potential to improve patient care. This study is an experimental investigation of exposure to blue (480nm) light in the setting o...

Comparison of Surgery and Medicine on the Impact of Diverticulitis (COSMID) Trial

Summary: The COSMID (Comparison of Surgery and Medicine on the Impact of Diverticulitis) trial is a pragmatic, patient-level randomized superiority trial of elective colectomy vs. best medical management for patients with quality of life (QoL) limiting diverticular disease. A parallel observational cohort will include those who are disinclined to have their treatment choice randomized, but are willing to c...
