Post-operative Management for Visceral (Intestine, Intestine/Liver, and Multi-Visceral) Transplantation
Patients who require intestine-containing grafts may be categorized into three groups: (1) patients who need an isolated intestinal transplant for intestinal failure; (2) those who need both an intestine and liver transplant for intestinal failure with total parenteral nutrition and liver disease; and (3) those with liver cirrhosis/complete mesoportal thrombosis who need either an intestine/liver or a full multivisceral transplant.
