Intestinal transplantation remains on the cutting edge of solid organ transplantation. Each potential recipient provides a unique case of intestinal failure with individual intricacies requiring the combined efforts of a complex multidisciplinary team in order to achieve success. Contemporary Small Bowel Transplantation covers all aspects of intestinal transplantation in a manner accessible to all providers and provides specific guidance for those that may come in contact with this field and these patients. The text provides an understanding of the critical pre-operative evaluation, thorough descriptions of each surgical procedure and postoperative management. Areas such as infectious disease, nutrition and graft versus host disease will be addressed in detail. Key controversies and administrative issues unique to intestinal transplantation are covered. Contemporary Small Bowel Transplantation provides critical guidance for the new transplant surgeon, gastroenterologist or administrator as they navigate the challenging field of intestinal transplantation
