Abstract

Background Guideline-concordant delay in elective laparoscopic colectomy for diverticulitis may result in repeated bouts of inflammation. We aimed to determine whether conversion rates from elective laparoscopic colectomy are higher after multiple episodes of diverticulitis. Methods Prospective cohort study evaluating laparoscopic colectomy conversion rates for diverticulitis from 42 hospitals was conducted. Results Between 2010 and 2013, 1,790 laparoscopic colectomies for diverticulitis (mean age 57.8 ± 13; 47% male) resulted in 295 (16.5%) conversions. Conversion occurred more frequently in nonelective operations (P
