Autologous gastrointestinal reconstructive surgery: Complement or alternative to intestinal transplantation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Purpose of review: Autologous intestinal reconstructive surgery has evolved over the past 3 decades from rescue to main surgical procedure in the multidisciplinary approach to short bowel syndrome (SBS) patients with intestinal failure. The purpose of this review is to clarify the actual place of intestinal reconstructive surgical techniques in the management of intestinal failure related to SBS and their relationship with intestinal transplantation. Recent findings: Recent reports from centers of excellence in intestinal rehabilitation underline the efficacy and safety of autologous intestinal reconstructive surgery in patients with SBS. Outcome parameters as survival, parenteral nutrition weaning, and clinical conditions were improved in SBS patients treated by gastrointestinal reconstructive surgery. Summary: Autologous intestinal reconstructive procedures are pivotal to achieve enteral autonomy in patients with intestinal failure related to SBS. They should be considered mutually supportive and not antagonistic to intestinal transplantation.
