Abstract

Background and study aims : Although several factors are thought to be responsible for the development of colonic diverticulosis the underlying pathogenesis is still obscure and needs clarification. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence, location and clinical features of CD and especially to detect whether there is an association between CD and postures during defecation.
