Small bowel transplantation: Who, when, where, and what organs?


Journal Article (Review)

In some patients the small intestine may be transplanted alone. Combined liver and small bowel transplantation is performed for patients with both liver and intestinal failure. As immunosuppressive medications improve, the results of intestinal transplantation are also improving.
