This is an observational study evaluating a catheter salvage strategy in relation to catheter-related bloodstream infections in patients with chronic intestinal failure dependent on home p...
Randomized, double-blind, controlled clinical trial to evaluate the effect of parenteral nutrition (PN) supplemented with lipid emulsions containing 0.1-0.2 g omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty...
Many patients with intestinal failure require intestinal transplantation for survival. Currently, the gold standard for diagnosing acute cellular rejection (ACR) is histological examinatio...
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and immune response of the rotavirus vaccine in infants who have undergone abdominal surgery.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the theory that the plasma level of Glucagon like peptide 2 (GLP-2) in patients with intestinal failure can predict their clinical recovery.
Intestinal failure (IF) is defined as "the reduction of gut function below the minimum necessary for the absorption of macronutrients and/or water and electrolytes, such that intravenous supplementati...
Intravenous lipid emulsions are an integral part of nutrition therapy in the intestinal failure patient. In addition to being a concentrated source of non-protein calories, they provide the essential ...
Multidisciplinary intestinal failure programs have played a leading role in the improved outcomes observed in children with intestinal failure over the past two decades. These teams evolved from the w...
Pediatric intestinal failure is a complex and devastating condition defined as the inability of the intestine to absorb an adequate amount of fluid and nutrients to sustain life. The primary goal of i...
Treatment results of pediatric intestinal failure have improved markedly during the last decades. With improved survival the attention is turning to other essential outcomes including quality of life ...
A condition caused by the lack of intestinal PERISTALSIS or INTESTINAL MOTILITY without any mechanical obstruction. This interference of the flow of INTESTINAL CONTENTS often leads to INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION. Ileus may be classified into postoperative, inflammatory, metabolic, neurogenic, and drug-induced.
General term for a group of MALNUTRITION syndromes caused by failure of normal INTESTINAL ABSORPTION of nutrients.
Dilatation of the intestinal lymphatic system usually caused by an obstruction in the intestinal wall. It may be congenital or acquired and is characterized by DIARRHEA; HYPOPROTEINEMIA; peripheral and/or abdominal EDEMA; and PROTEIN-LOSING ENTEROPATHIES.
A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.
A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
