General treatment of short bowel syndrome is long-term total parenteral nutrition (TPN). But long-term TPN therapy produces thrombus, infection and obstruction of central veins and results in the life-threatening complications. Recently we experienced first case of small bowel transplantation in a 57-year old female with only 30 cm jejunum and distal part of colon to the splenic flexure who was suffering short bowel syndrome due to previous wide resection of small bowel. We report successful anesthetic management of small bowel transplantation in the patient with short bowel syndrome who has been suffered from life threatening complications due to long-term TPN therapy.
