The underlying mechanism responsible for motility changes in colonic diverticular disease (DD) is still unknown. In the present study, our aim was to investigate the structural and in vitro motor changes in the sigmoid colon of patients with DD. Muscle bath, microelectrodes and immunohistochemical techniques were performed with samples obtained from the… CONTINUE READING
