Small bowel transplant performed on woman with intestinal ischemia

17 Apr, 2023

 

A small bowel transplant using a deceased-donor organ, airlifted from Bengaluru, was performed on a 46-year-old woman at MGM Healthcare in the city.

The patient from Kerala was diagnosed with intestinal ischemia. She had developed partial gangrene in the largest intestine and a complete small intestine gangrene. The infected portions were removed by doctors there. She was further treated for short gut syndrome, a rare malabsorption disorder caused by a lack of functional small intestine. She then came to the city.
