Abstract

The past decade has seen major organ transplantation become routine. Although the small intestine can now be successfully transplanted alone or with other organs, the operation presents unique challenges which are reflected in lower survival rates compared with transplantation of other organs. This review presents the development of clinical small intestinal transplantation and its current status.
