Abstract

The short bowel syndrome in the pediatric population most commonly results from neonatal necrotizing enterocolitis. Multiple remedial surgical procedures have been developed to manage the rapid intestinal transit, decreased mucosal surface area, ineffective peristalsis, and short intestinal length in these patients. Despite significant morbidity, the overall outcome is favorable and warrants aggressive nutritional support, medical management, and surgical intervention in selected patients.
