Abstract

The authors report their experience of the treatment of 43 cases of perforated colonic diverticula. The operations were: 12 primary resections-anastomoses; 7 resections-anastomoses with protective colostomy; 2 operations of suture and drainage; 22 Hartmann's resections. The authors believe that Hartmann's resection is the operation of first choice in cases of diffuse or stercoraceous peritonitis. This operation another the removal of the sick part of intestines without exposing the patient to the possible complications of an operation "at risk", and allows a late recanalization destitute of risk: in our experience 13 cases of 22 (59%).
