BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Without prompt superior mesenteric artery (SMA) revascularization, acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI) frequently leads to death or short bowel syndrome (SBS). In SBS patients, persistent or chronic intestinal ischemia (PII) of the remnant bowel can lead to recurrences of AMI. Since SMA revascularization is sometimes unfeasible, celiac artery (CA) revascularization may improve blood supply to the remnant bowel. The aim of this study was to describe and to assess our experience of the CA revascularization in case of SMA occlusion unsuitable for revascularization in the setting of PII in SBS patients...

OBJECTIVE: The primary goal in intestinal failure (IF) is adaptation and enteral autonomy (EA). Our goals were to determine the proportion of patients treated for IF by an established intestinal rehabilitation program who achieved EA and to assess the predictors of EA. BACKGROUND: There have been considerable advancements in the management of IF over the last 15 years, children with short bowel syndrome with a reduction in mortality. Several studies have discussed variables that may influence the ability to attain EA; however, majority were written when mortality rates were considerably higher compared with the current contemporary experience...

BACKGROUND: Spinal cord injury (SCI) is characterized by a total or partial deficit of sensory and motor pathways. Impairments of this injury compromise muscle recruitment and motor planning, thus reducing functional capacity. SCI patients commonly present psychological, intestinal, urinary, osteomioarticular, tegumentary, cardiorespiratory and neural alterations that aggravate in chronic phase. One of the neurorehabilitation goals is the restoration of these abilities by favoring improvement in the quality of life and functional independence...

A systematic bibliographic research concerning patients operated on for SBS was performed: inclusion criteria were adult age, reconnection surgery and SBS < 100 cm. Autologous gastrointestinal reconstruction represented an exclusion criteria. The outcomes of interest were the rate of total parenteral nutrition (TPN) independence and the length of follow-up (minimum 1 year) after surgery. We reviewed our experience from 2003 to 2013 with minimum 1-year follow-up, dealing with reconnection surgery in 13 adults affected by < 100 cm SBS after massive small bowel resection: autologous gastrointestinal reconstruction was not feasible...

Number and size of aggregated lymphoid nodules in the small intestine of mice exposed to radiation using a γ-irradiation unit GOBO-60 with 137Cs source were measured using the methods of visual microscopy and morphometry. Morphological status of the nodules was estimated on days 4, 28, 60, and 90 after the exposure. Significant changes were observed in the lymphoid system of the small intestine after exposure to low-intensity radiation. The size of aggregated lymphoid nodules decreased and the relative number of cells with degenerative changes increased...

Long-term parenteral nutrition (PN) may be complicated by PN-associated liver disease (PNALD), and some studies suggest an association between the use of soy-based fat emulsions and PNALD development. Patients' liver function typically improves and PNALD resolves after reducing or stopping a soy-based fat emulsion, and thus lipid minimization has been the primary strategy for managing PNALD in many intestinal rehabilitation programs. However, fat emulsions often cannot be stopped entirely, leading some patients to develop PNALD even after lipid reduction strategies have been implemented...

Patients with short bowel syndrome suffer from fluid and electrolyte imbalance and malabsorption due to poor nutrient processing capability of the residual intestine. Nutritional support therapy has been considered as one of the important treatments for short bowel syndrome. For patients with short bowel syndrome, a deep understanding of metabolic changes, and then rational application of nutritional support therapy and intestinal rehabilitation program can save many patients' lives, improve quality of life, and even achieve independence from parenteral nutrition, and return to a normal life...

INTRODUCTION: After the diagnosis of transsexualism is confirmed therapy commences with psychotherapeutic preparation for the conversion, and after conversion, long-term patient rehabilitation is maintained for at least two years. The indication for surgery is chronic discomfort caused by discord with the patient's natural gender, intense dislike of developing secondary sex characteristics and the onset of puberty. The surgical conversion of transsexuals is the main step in the complex care of these problematic patients (1)...

PURPOSE: Small bowel length is the most reliable predictor of enteral independence in pediatric short bowel syndrome. Retrospectively measured bowel lengths on upper GI with small bowel follow-through (UGI/SBFT) were compared to operative measurements. METHODS: A pediatric radiologist and surgical trainees blinded to operative measurements retrospectively analyzed UGI/SBFT studies using the digital radiography curved measurement tool. Children with SBS and severe intestinal failure (parenteral nutrition >90days) at a multidisciplinary intestinal failure program 2002-2015 were included...

The field of intestinal transplantation has experienced dramatic growth since the first reported cases 3 decades ago. Improvements in operative technique, donor assessment and immunosuppressive protocols have afforded children who suffer from life-threatening complications of intestinal failure a chance at long-term survival. As experience has grown, newer diseases, with more systemic manifestations have arisen as potential indications for transplant. After discussing the historical developments of intestinal transplant as a backdrop, this review focuses on the specific pre-operative indications for transplant as well as the great success that intestinal rehabilitation has witnessed over the past decade...

BACKGROUND: The advent of regional multidisciplinary intestinal rehabilitation programs has been associated with improved survival in pediatric intestinal failure. Yet, the optimal timing of referral for intestinal rehabilitation remains unknown. We hypothesized that the degree of intestinal failure-associated liver disease (IFALD) at initiation of intestinal rehabilitation would be associated with overall outcome. METHODS: The multicenter, retrospective Pediatric Intestinal Failure Consortium (PIFCon) database was used to identify all subjects with baseline bilirubin data...

Pre-emptive transplantation is a well-established practice for certain types of end-organ failure such as in the use of kidney transplantation. For irreversible intestinal failure, total parenteral nutrition (TPN) remains the gold standard, due to the suboptimal long-term results of intestinal transplantation. As such, the only role for pre-emptive transplantation, if at all, will be for patients identified to be at high risk of complications and mortality while on definitive long-term TPN. In these patients, the timing of early listing and transplantation could become life-saving, taking into account that mortality on the waiting list is still the highest for intestinal candidates...

Ultrashort bowel syndrome (USBS) is a group of heterogeneous disorders where the length of small bowel is less than 10 cm or 10% of expected for the age. It is caused by massive loss of the gut which in the neonatal period can be a result of vanishing gastroschisis or surgical resection following mid-gut volvulus, jejunoileal atresia and/or extensive necrotising enterocolitis. The exact prevalence of USBS is not known although there is a clear trend towards increasing numbers because of increased incidence and improved survival...

Intestinal failure is a rare, debilitating condition that presents both acute and chronic medical management challenges. The condition is incompatible with life in the absence of the safe application of specialized and individualized medical therapy that includes surgery, medical equipment, nutritional products, and standard nursing care. Intestinal rehabilitation programs are best suited to provide such complex care with the goal of achieving enteral autonomy and oral feeding with or without intestinal transplantation...

The present study included 60 patients presenting with chronic non-calculous cholecystitis and intestinal dysbiosis. It has been demonstrated that the application of the 'Nor Narine' probiotic in the combination with 'Djermuk' hydrocarbon sodium sulfate mineral water and the pre-formed physical factors, in the first place the magnetic laser radiation, increases the effectiveness of the rehabilitative treatment of the patients. Such treatment resulted not only in the positive dynamics of the clinical picture of disease but also in the well apparent marked tendency toward normalization of the intestinal biocenosis, the lipid blood spectrum, the antioxidant system, and the energetic exchange...

Here, we report a new species of Sarcocystis with red-tailed hawk (RTH, Buteo jamaicensis) as the natural definitive host and IFN-γ gene knockout (KO) mice as an experimental intermediate host in which sarcocysts form in muscle. Two RTHs submitted to the Carolina Raptor Center, Huntersville, North Carolina, were euthanized because they could not be rehabilitated and released. Fully sporulated 12.5 × 9.9-μm sized sporocysts were found in intestinal scrapings of both hawks. Sporocysts were orally fed to laboratory-reared outbred Swiss Webster mice (SW, Mus musculus) and also to KO mice...
