Colonic diverticula is observed in over 60% of the western population aged over 80 where up to 30% will eventually be symptomatic and may develop complications. The natural history and etiology of colonic diverticula have been well described. However, predictive indicators of complicated diverticular disease are not known thus preventing the prophylactic treatment of this subset of patients,. The aim of this study was to observe patients with complicated diverticular disease in order to identify common factors associated with recurrent complications.
