Summary

The introduction of parenteral nutrition support has given patients with short bowel syndrome the time they need to achieve maximal intestinal rehabilitation and has allowed these patients to survive. The pioneering work of Drs. Byrnes and Wilmore in the 1990s focused on novel techniques to enhance intestinal adaptation and absorption, including modification of diet, special nutrients, oral rehydration solutions, growth factors, and surgical techniques. Intestinal Failure and Rehabilitation: A Clinical Guide brings together an expert group of clinicians to help us understand current information regarding the prevention, diagnosis, care, and management of patients with intestinal failure.
