In view of the similar patterns of incidence of diverticular disease of the colon (DD) and ischemic heart disease in different communities, the prevalence of diverticular disease was investigated in male patients after recovery from acute myocardial infarction. A significantly higher prevalence of DD was found among infarct patients (57%) than among male control subjects (25%) matched for age and social class.
