Abstract

We present a pictorial essay on pediatric intestinal transplantation that describes the indications for pediatric intestinal transplantation, surgical technique, and the role of imaging in the pre-transplant work-up and detection of post-transplant complications. We illustrate the normal post-transplant imaging appearance and common complications, including rejection, infection, post-transplant lymphoproliferative disease (PTLD), mechanical dysfunction and vascular complications. We conclude with an imaging algorithm for suspected post-transplant complications based on clinical scenarios.
