See How It Works

What is Intestine Transplant?

Intestine transplantation (also known as intestinal transplantation or small bowel transplantation) is a surgical procedure that replaces the small intestine in patients with chronic or acute intestinal failure.

The human body requires nutrition to function properly. If they can't be consumed owing to intestinal failure, they're given intravenously by complete parenteral nutrition, which involves placing a catheter in the patient's neck, arm, chest, or groyne. Because using a catheter for an extended period of time increases the risk of infections, bone dislocation, and liver illness, an intestinal transplant becomes the only long-term treatment for intestinal failure.

Intestinal failure can occur at any time after birth or later in life. In the following situations, an intestinal transplant may be required:

  • Short gut syndrome
  • TPN (Total Parenteral Nutrition) complications are a common occurrence. These include the failure to locate additional intact veins into which the catheter can be inserted, bone movement caused by prolonged insertion, and infection.
  • Complications of the liver

Intestinal failure can be caused by a variety of factors, including nutritional, viral, traumatic, and metabolic problems that impair normal anatomy and physiology.

The inability to absorb nutrients, fluids, and electrolytes from food, which happens in case of small intestine failure can be life-threatening. Homeostasis cannot be maintained without these vital substances and so would be the ability to maintain energy balances without the small intestine working.

Types of Intestinal transplant

Small bowel transplant: Only the small intestine is transplanted

Combined intestine and liver transplant: In addition to a small bowel transplant, you may have a liver transplant also.

Multivisceral transplant: A multivisceral transplant often includes a pancreas transplant. Some people also receive a stomach or colon transplant.

Modified multivisceral transplant: You receive transplantation of stomach, pancreas and intestine.

In the most basic and common graft, an isolated intestinal graft, only sections of the jejunum and ileum are transplanted.

When is Intestine Transplant required?

If your medical condition falls into one of the following categories, you may be a candidate for an intestinal transplant:

  • TPN related complications:
    • Parenteral nutrition-induced liver disease
    • Central venous catheter (CVC) related thrombosis of two or more central veins
    • Frequent episodes of central line sepsis
  • Intestinal failure with intolerance to parenteral nutrition
    • Intestinal failure with high morbidity (frequent hospitalization, narcotic dependency) or inability to function
      Patient's unwillingness to accept long-term home parenteral nutrition
  • Short Bowel Syndrome (SBS). This is a malabsorption disorder caused by the surgical removal (resection) of large sections of intestine.
  • Chronic Intestinal Pseudo-obstruction (CIPO)
  • Intra-abdominal non-metastasizing tumors

How is Intestine Transplant done?

Before the intestinal transplant, the patient is assessed thoroughly and made to undergo a battery of tests to ensure that the donor is healthy enough to survive the surgery. The test includes blood testing and various other investigations, physical assessment by physician, surgeon, anesthetist, gastroenterologists, dietitians and other psychological tests.

The Intestine Transplant Selection Committee will present and discuss your results once your transplant evaluation is completed in order to provide the best possible recommendations about your ongoing medical treatment, surgical intervention, and suitability for intestinal transplant surgery.

You will begin the waiting period once you have been listed, and you may be called for transplant surgery at any time. The length of the wait is determined on the availability of the organ. You will be seen in the transplant clinic throughout this time and will need to have follow-up testing at regular intervals.

The length of surgery varies depending on what type of intestinal transplant you're having. On an average, the intestine transplant takes about 8-12 hours.

Step 1

Your blood vessels will be linked to the blood vessels of the transplanted intestine once the diseased bowel is removed. The latter will subsequently be linked to your intestines or whatever remains of them.

Step 2

Your surgeon will divert a small portion of your small bowel through a hole in your abdomen called the stoma, according to the rules of an ileostomy.

Step 3

Following the procedure, your body's digestive waste will travel through the stoma and into an external pouch. Your transplant team will be able to examine the health of your transplanted intestine as a result of this.

What is the Recovery after Intestine Transplant like?

You will be shifted to the transplant intensive care unit (ICU) after the transplant surgery, where you will stay for a few days depending on how fast you recover. To ensure that the transplanted intestine survives in your body, you will need to take anti-rejection medications for the rest of your life.

The recovery procedure following an intestinal transplant is a long and sluggish one that tries to gradually improve the patient's health and fitness. Resuming normal daily activities could take up to six months.

What Results Can I Expect from Intestine Transplant ?

Because of advances in medical research, the number of people who have survived has increased throughout time. The survival rate of intestinal transplants is currently 70%, and in some cases much higher.

Patient Testimonials

  • My dad was advised cardiac bypass surgery in CA, USA, but because of being uninsured, such high costs of cardiac surgery in the US, we were really not able to afford it. IndiCure has actually helped in saving my dad's life and we are really grateful for the same.
    I am falling short of words, to express my gratitude to the surgeon who was very helpful and courteous.
    Will recommend IndiCure to everyone!

    John Smith ( California, United States of America )

    Procedure : CABG surgery

  • My son 4 years old was born with a heart defect which the doctors said needed a highly specialized surgery. Our cardiologist highly spoke of Indian surgeons and suggested us to go to India and in hindsight now I realize how right he was!
    My son was successfully operated and I must thank Indicure for the excellent arrangements they made.

    Patricia Munene ( Ethiopia )

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, Intestine transplant is very much possible in India. Short bowel transplants, often known as intestinal transplants, are procedures that replace damaged intestines with healthy ones. Other organs can be transplanted at the same time if necessary.

The Intestinal Transplant Registry reported 1-year actuarial patient survival rates of 69 percent for isolated small bowel transplants, 66 percent for small bowel-liver transplants, and 63 percent for multivisceral transplants, as well as graft survival rates of 55 percent for ISB and 63 percent for SB-L and MV, according to the registry.

source - https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/23074441/

Although a living donor can contribute a portion of the intestine, most intestinal transplants require an entire organ from a deceased donor. Furthermore, the majority of intestinal transplants are done in conjunction with a liver transplant.

Most people can live without a stomach or large intestine, but living without a small intestine is more difficult. Nutrients must be injected directly into the bloodstream (intravenous or IV) in liquid form when all or part of the small intestine is removed or stops working.
