Abstract

Introduction:Despite the high prevalence of acute uncomplicated divertic-ulitis, there has been little original research regarding its dietary manage-ment upon presentation to acute care. Due to the lack of evidence andconflicting clinical guidelines, practice varies widely between physiciansbut frequently involves a combination of bowel rest and liquid diets hypoth-esized to reduce patient symptoms and promote recovery. However, thesedietary restrictions are not well evidenced and may increase patient burdenand length of stay. Therefore, a prospective observational cohort study wasundertaken to investigate the effect of inpatient dietary restriction on lengthof stay and 30-day diverticulitis recurrence in adults with acute uncompli-cated diverticulitis.
