Small bowel transplantation is associated with a patient survival at one and five years, of 80% and 63%, respectively.

Immunosuppression was achieved by means of alemtuzumab, tacrolimus, sirolimus, micofenolate mofetil and steroids. Serial endoscopies and biopsies were performed during seven months after transplantation. The most important late complications were a drug induced renal failure, infections caused by opportunistic agents and a gastrointestinal bleeding probably induced by drugs. After 29 months ...
