This report describes a new innovative pull-through technique of hindgut reconstruction with en bloc small bowel and colon transplantation in a Crohn's disease patient with irreversible intestinal failure. The approach was intersphincteric and the anastomosis was established between the allograft colon and the recipient anal verge with achievement of full nutritional autonomy and anal continence.
