Abstract

The general term “intestinal/multivisceral transplantation” (InMvTx) refers to an heterogeneous class of transplants involving the whole small bowel (jejunum+ ileum), transplanted “en bloc” and simultaneously with or without one or more segments of the upper or lower gastrointestinal tract (“visceral component”: stomach, duodenum, colon) and with or without one or more solid abdominal organs (“solid organ component”: liver, pancreas, sometimes kidney/s).
