Abstract

The development of autologous gastrointestinal reconstructive surgery, or intestinal surgery rehabilitation, has markedly changed the prognosis of children with poor intestinal function, especially in short bowel syndrome cases. Potentiating the adaptive capacity of the small intestine via nutritional techniques or surgical rehabilitation has been associated with an improved patient prognosis. Owing to a multidisciplinary approach in specialized centers, these patients are now able to enjoy a good quality of life and can be weaned from parenteral nutrition, even in situations that once seemed hopeless.
