The rate of acute diverticulitis is continuously increasing in Western industrialized countries, so the estimated annual number of hospitalizations for acute episodes of diverticulitis will be significantly higher in the next decades. These data will be consequentially associated with an increase of financial resources needed to treat patients affected from acute episodes of AD.
As recent epidemiological studies have identified, an increased rate of hospitalization has been reported for patients less than 70 years old, especially those under 60. Differently, the hospitalization for elderly was higher but remained unchanged.
During this same period, an increase of hospitalization for complicated AD with a higher surgery rate for peritonitis and abscess was reported.
Focus on DD is increasing exponentially, as reflected also in the number of recent publications, guidelines, and position papers devoted to it.
This Special Issue on “New Trends on Acute Colonic Diverticulitis” is devoted to the development of an updated investigation and rationale on epidemiology, pathology, biomarkers, diagnostics, medical therapeutics, and surgical treatment.
