Maladie diverticulaire du côlon droit : quo vadis ?

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2014, vol. 10, no. 435, p. 1325-30
Abstract Symptomatic diverticular disease of the right colon is a rare entity in our latitudes, where it represents only 1.5% of all diverticulitis. In contrary, this disease is endemic in Asian countries. Besides, it has several differences with its left counterpart. Indeed, a right-sided diverticular disease is more often symptomatic, while the risk of complicated episodes seems lower. Right-sided diverticular disease usually manifests as right iliac fossa pain or low gastrointestinal bleeding. First described on 1912, there are no clear guidelines. The approach is usually conservative in Asia; when surgery cannot be avoided, a limited resection is performed. In Western countries, a surgical approach is more often considered. We reviewed the current literature and propose a way to manage right diverticulitis.
