Fig. 5. Colonic smooth muscle cells contractility in symptomatic uncomplicated diverticular disease (SUDD) patients vs controls (control group [CG]). In SUDD patients the resting cell length was higher, even if not statistically different from CG 184.8 ± 12.9 (A). Similarly to muscle strips, the acetylcholine (ACh)-elicited contraction of smooth muscle cells (SMCs) was significantly reduced when compared to CG, being 8.83% ± 1.8 (B). *P < 0.05.
