CLASSIFICATION OF DIVERTICULAR DISEASE OF THE COLON

Diverticular disease of the colon has a long history dating back to the first half of the XVIII century. The first attempt to classify it belongs to N. S. Painter (1968). Since then to date, many variants and modifications have been proposed. There is no single classification among them that could combine clinical manifestations, data from instrumental and laboratory diagnostic methods and become comprehensive and convenient for use in everyday clinical practice.
