A condition in which pouches form on the wall of the colon.
a very common condition of the lower colon of older people, characterised by a thickened muscle coating round the bowel, and multiple small out-pouchings (diverticula) which may become infected (diverticulitis) .
presence of small sacs or outpouchings (diverticula) of the inner lining of the intestine that protrude through the intestinal wall. These sacs form in weakened areas of the bowel.
Outpouches of the colon wall. Diverticula may bleed, or become blocked and inflamed resulting in diverticulosis.
The presence of diverticula, circumscribed sacs on the lining membrane of tubular organs such as colon, produced by defect in the muscular coat.
The formation of diverticula in the wall of an organ.
The presence of one or more diverticula.
pockets located in the colon that are not infected.
presence of diverticula in the walls of the colon
A condition in which small sacs (diverticula) form in the wall of the colon. This condition is common among older people.
A condition that occurs in organs like the stomach or colon when small pouches or sacs (diverticula) in the organ walls become inflamed. Diverticulitis may be a risk factor of certain cancers.
Diverticulosis is the condition of having diverticula, small outpouchings from the large intestine, the colon. (One outpouching is a diverticulum; two or more are diverticula). See the entire definition of Diverticulosis
A condition in which a person has small sacs or pouch in the walls of a canal or organ, such as the stomach or intestine. These sacs can become inflamed to cause diverticulitis and can be a risk factor for certain types of cancer.
Pouch-like bulges in the wall of the intestine.
A condition of the large intestines characterized by the development of weakness in the intestinal wall that permits herniation or outpouching of the intestinal lining. Diverticulosis usually develops as a result of inadequate dietary fiber.
When the pouches (diverticula) push outward through weak spots in the colon. It usually occurs in adults. It is most likely caused by not enough fiber in the diet. Most patients with diverticulosis will not have symptoms. Some patients can develop diverticulitis or bleeding.
The abnormal presence of small protruding sacs of the inner lining of the intestine. These may (occur in any part of the intestine but are most common in the colon. More Information
A condition marked by small sacs or pouches (diverticula) in the walls of an organ such as the stomach or colon. These sacs can become inflamed and cause a condition called diverticulitis, which may be a risk factor for certain types of cancer.
An intestinal disorder where hollow or fluid filled outpockets form on the colon wall.
condition that occurs when small pouches (diverticula) push outward through weak spots in the colon.
Diverticulosis, otherwise known as "diverticular disease", is the condition of having diverticula in the colon which are outpocketings of the colonic mucosa and submucosa through weaknesses of muscle layers in the colon wall. These are more common in the sigmoid colon, which is a common place for increased pressure. This is uncommon before the age of 40 and increases in incidence after that age.
