BACKGROUND AND AIMS Diverticulosis is a common disease of not completely defined pathogenesis. Motor abnormalities of the intestinal wall have been frequently described but very little is known about their mechanisms. We investigated in vitro the neural response of colonic longitudinal muscle strips from patients undergoing surgery for complicated diverticular disease (diverticulitis). METHODS The neural contractile response to electrical field stimulation of longitudinal muscle strips from… CONTINUE READING
