EAST Town Hall Debate: Laparascopic Lavage for Perforated Diverticulitis - Useful Tool or Full of Stool? - Podcast #72
01/06/2017

Listen to the audio from our latest live EAST Town Hall Debate on a current “hot topic” in emergency general surgery, the use of laparoscopic lavage as a minimally invasive and non-resectional intervention for patients who require emergency surgery for perforated diverticulitis. Listen to our experts, Christian Jones and Tejal Brahmbhatt on the “Pro” side and Kevin Schuster and Andrew Bernard on the “Con” side, discuss a recently published meta-analysis and then all of the clinical and technique-related issues surrounding this contentious topic. Moderated by Dave Morris and Matt Martin.
