Resumen

MORENO B., Natalia et al. Prevalence of asymptomatic colonic diverticula in Chilean population as an imaging finding in abdominal and pelvic tomography. Rev. cir. [online]. 2019, vol.71, n.3, pp.230-237. ISSN 2452-4557.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/s2452-45492019000300230.

Introduction:

Asymptomatic colonic diverticular prevalence varies in the general population between 20 and 60% in international references, however, we couldn't find statistics about it in national reports. A method for detection of this nosological entity is the abdomen and pelvis computed tomography.

Aim:

Determine the prevalence of asymptomatic colonic diverticulosis in the general population as a find in abdomen and pelvis computed tomography (TCAP).

Materials and Method:

Cross-sectional study with descriptive statistics, selecting patients with no history of diverticulosis, who underwent TCAP in our Hospital. 1,449 cases are reviewed and 1,177 are included.

Results:

The general prevalence of colonic diverticula was 28.3%. Their presence increases with age, being close to 60% in > 80 years. Almost 90% are located in the left colon, being more frequent the right side diverticulosis in population under 60 years.

Conclusions

B The overall prevalence of asymptomatic colonic diverticulosis, detected as a finding in TCAP, corresponds to about one third of patients.

Palabras clave : colonic diverticulum; asymptomatic; prevalence.
