Abstract

Small bowel transplantation is becoming the treatment of choice for short-gut syndrome. Improvements in surgical techniques, immunosuppressants, and anesthetic management of patients have allowed this procedure to become the standard of treatment for patients who are unable to continue total parenteral nutrition (TPN) therapy due to TPN-associated complications. We experienced small bowel transplantation in a 10-month-old male infant who had small bowel resection for small bowel volvulus and has suffered from complications such as recurrent sepsis, disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) due to long-term TPN. We report our experience with a brief review of the relevant literature.
