Instrumental diagnosis and laparoscopic treatment of the giant sigmoid diverticulum: technical notes. Internal hernia and abdominal abscess after one month

2020 Journal of Clinical Review & Case Reports  
The giant colon diverticulum is a rare disease. Symptomatology is non-specific but can cause acute abdomen in 30% of cases. Diagnosis is often accidental and is mainly based on CT. The treatment is surgical but there are still few cases treated laparoscopically. We present the case of a patient treated laparoscopically who returns to the ward after a month with intra-abdominal abscess and internal hernia without intestinal occlusion.
