Abstract

We performed141 intestinal transplants in 123 children. Survival has significantly improved in recent years with fewer severe rejection episodes mainly due to improved immunosuppression and greater use of multivisceral transplantation. Problems in achieving long-term successful outcomes remain, particularly the increased mortality due to infection in infant recipients.
