Epidemiologie, Ursachen und konservative Therapie der Divertikelkrankheit

Conference paper
Part of the Interdisziplinäre Gastroenterologie book series (GASTROENTEROLOG)


Unter Divertikelkrankheit subsumiert man die symptomatische Divertikulose (Stadium 1), die Divertikulitis (Stadium 2) sowie als deren Komplikationen die Peridivertikulitis und Perikolitis (Stadien 3 und 4, s. auch Kap. 42). Hinzu kommt als vorklinisches Stadium die umkomplizierte Divertikulose ohne Beschwerden.
