We were struck by Ceresoli et al’s1 article published in Journal of Inflammation Research in May 2018. The aim of the review was to investigate the role of inflammation in diverticular disease and in mild and complicated acute diverticulitis with particular attention to the current research and treatment perspectives.1 Based on the solid collaboration of the authors with the World Society of Emergency Surgery (WSES), a worldwide reference in the management of emergency surgical diseases, our attention was focused on the Damage Control Surgery (DCS) paragraph.
