Abstract

Intestinal transplantation offers hope to children with intestinal failure and life-threatening complications of parenteral nutrition (PN). As more transplant centers are adding intestinal transplantation to their existing programs, new challenges are presented to nursing professionals. This three-part series will provide information for nursing professionals regarding evaluation for intestinal transplantation, donor preparation, the surgical procedure, immediate postoperative care of the transplant recipient, complications of intestinal transplantation, and long-term care of the intestinal transplant patient. Part 1 will discuss the indications for intestinal transplantation, the evaluation of patients for intestinal transplantation, the process of listing patients for intestinal transplantation, and the waiting time for donor organs for intestinal transplantation. The information presented represents the approach taken at University of Nebraska Medical Center.
