Brief Summary:

The purpose of this study is to collect a multi-institutional database including all relevant data regarding the surgical and clinical features of patients underwent to laparoscopic lavage for complicated colic diverticulitis. The main objectives are:

  • To determine the surgical and clinical outcomes, in the short and long term.
  • To compare results according to the different type of techniques, device used and manner of execution of the different surgical steps.
  • To relate results of different surgeries with baseline characteristics of patients and stage of disease.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Patients with colonic diverticulitis submitted to laparoscopic lavage
Procedure: laparoscopic-lavage

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. success rate [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    the success rate of laparoscopic peritoneal lavage, defined as the rate of patients alive with no need of further surgical treatment for recurrent attacks of diverticulitis

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. conversion to any form of laparoscopy [ Time Frame: intraoperative ]
    conversion to any form of laparoscopy different from peritoneal lavage (with or without bowel resection)

  2. conversion to laparotomy [ Time Frame: intraoperative ]
    conversion to laparotomy (with or without bowel resection)

  3. 30 days post-operative mortality [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
  4. 30 days post-operative surgical re-interventions rate [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
  5. 30 days post-operative percutaneous drainage rate [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
  6. hospital readmission rate for recurrence of diverticulitis [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
  7. visualisation of colonic perforation [ Time Frame: intraoperative ]
    rate of visualisation of colonic perforation during laparoscopic peritoneal lavage

  8. visceral adhesiolysis [ Time Frame: intraoperative ]
    consistency, if any, of visceral adhesiolysis performed during the procedure

  9. duration of follow-up [ Time Frame: 12 ]
  10. post-lavage elective resection rate (lavage "bridge" to resection) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
