Glucose Absorption After Heterotopic Small-Bowel Transplantation
In heterotopic transplantation, the grafted intestine is temporarily excluded from normal passage of the ingesta. Therefore, it seemed logical to examine the response of the organ during the period of functional inactivation, before the graft is brought into orthotopic position. The aim of this study was to show changes in graft function by measuring glucose and water absorption and by correlating these results to morphometric findings.
