Brief Summary:
To identify predictors for postoperative health related quality of life after elective sigmoidectomy for diverticular disease.

Condition or disease
Diverticular Disease of Colon Quality of Life

Detailed Description:
According to current international guidelines, indications for surgical treatment of diverticular disease are inhomogeneous. To date, the measurement of pre- and postoperative quality of life (QoL) is underrepresented. To ensure an individually tailored therapeutical approach, and to avoid unnecessary surgery as well as the risk of a hazardous chronification of the disease, QoL importantly needs to be focused within the decisional process for the best treatment option. The aim of the PREDIC DIV-Study is, to identify predictors for a better postoperative quality of life in patients who undergo elective sigmoidectomy for diverticular disease. PREDIC DIV is a prospective observational study.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Postoperative quality of life (QoL) after a follow up of six month: SF-36 [ Time Frame: six month ]
    Quality of life will be assessed by use of the SF36- questionnaire


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Postoperative quality of life (QoL) after a follow up of six month: GI-Quality of Life Index [ Time Frame: six month ]
    Quality of life will be assessed by use of GI-Quality of Life Index-questionnaire

  2. Postoperative quality of life (QoL) after a follow up of six month: Visual analogue scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: six month ]
    Quality of life will be assessed by use of a visual analogue scale (VAS). The scale ranges from 0 to 100 mm. 0 is the least desirable condition. 100 is the most desirable condition.

  3. Quality of life after a follow up of 24 month: SF-36 [ Time Frame: 24 month ]
    Quality of life will be assessed by use of SF36-questionnaire

  4. Quality of life after a follow up of 24 month: GI-Quality of Life Index [ Time Frame: 24 month ]
    Quality of life will be assessed by use GI-Quality of Life index-questionnaire

  5. Quality of life after a follow up of 24 month: Visual analogue scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: 24 month ]
    Quality of life will be assessed by use of a visual analogue scale (VAS). The scale ranges from 0 to 100 mm. 0 is the least desirable condition. 100 is the most desirable condition.

  6. Peri- und postoperative morbidity [ Time Frame: 30 days, 6 and 24 month ]
    Assessement by use of Clavien-Dindo-Classification

  7. Mortality [ Time Frame: 30 days, 6 and 24 month ]
    Mortality is defined as 30-days postoperative mortality and mortality in association to diverticulitis recurrency

  8. Coexisting characteristics of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) [ Time Frame: 0, 6 and 24 month ]
    IBS-scoring will be performed pre- and postoperatively by use of ROME IV criteria

  9. Subjective assessment of Diverticulitis severity [ Time Frame: 0, 6 and 24 month ]
    Evaluation of the patients subjective estimate on disease severity by use of a visual analogue scale (VAS). The scale ranges from 0 to 100 mm. 0 is the least desirable condition (=most severe imaginable diverticulitis). 100 is the most desirable condition (=no diverticulitis).

  10. Diverticulitis severity: Classification of Diverticular Disease [ Time Frame: 1 day before surgery ]
    CT-scan based grading of diverticulitis in uncomplicated or complicated disease according to Classification of Diverticular Disease

  11. Diverticulitis severity: Ambrossetti Classification [ Time Frame: 1 day before surgery ]
    CT-scan based grading of diverticulitis in uncomplicated or complicated disease according to Ambrossetti Classification

  12. Diverticulitis severity: Modified Hinchey Classification [ Time Frame: 1 day before surgery ]
    CT-scan based grading of diverticulitis in uncomplicated or complicated disease according to Modified Hinchey Classification

  13. Diverticulitis severity according to preoperative CT-scan [ Time Frame: 1 day before surgery ]
    Evaluation for evidence of pericolic gas

  14. Diverticulitis severity according to preoperative CT-scan [ Time Frame: 1 day before surgery ]
    Evaluation for evidence of pericolic or pelvic abscess

  15. Diverticulitis severity [ Time Frame: 2 days after surgery ]
    histological grading of inflammation in the resected bowel (Grade 1-4)

  16. Influence of guideline specific treatment on postoperative quality of life [ Time Frame: 6 and 24 month ]
    Postoperative comparison of indication for surgery with given indications in relevant international Guidelines (German, US, Danish, GB, Italian, Dutch). Review of the association between a guideline-matching treatment and postoperative quality of life. Identification of the guideline, which potentially leads to the best achieved quality of life

  17. Postoperative changes in fecal continence [ Time Frame: 0, 6 and 24 month ]
    Pre- and postoperative results of Wexner-score

  18. Postoperative changes in urinary continence [ Time Frame: 0, 6 and 24 month ]
    Pre- and postoperative results of urinary distress inventory (UDI6)

  19. Postoperative changes in male sexual function [ Time Frame: 0, 6 and 24 month ]
    Assessment of male sexual function by use of International index of erectile function (IIEF)

  20. Postoperative changes in female sexual function [ Time Frame: 0, 6 and 24 month ]

  21. Preoperative fecal calprotectin [ Time Frame: 1 day preoperative ]
    Measurement of fecal calprotectin preoperatively

  22. Postoperative fecal calprotectin [ Time Frame: 6 and 24 month ]
    Measurement of fecal calprotectin postoperatively

    Analysis at the rectosigmoidal junction: overall thickness of the bowel wall

  24. Morphological changes of the bowel wall: thickness of bowel wall [ Time Frame: 1 day after surgery ]
    Analysis at the the rectosigmoidal junction: thickness of the muscular layer

  25. Morphological changes of the bowel wall: Cells of Cajal [ Time Frame: 1 day after surgery ]
    Analysis within the inflamed segment: amount of Cajal-cells in the bowel wall

  26. Morphological changes of the bowel wall: Fibrosis [ Time Frame: 1 day after surgery ]
