Abstract

Background: The primary goal of surgical therapy for short bowel syndrome is to increase intestinal absorptive capacity. Many surgical procedures have been described for this purpose. One of these is ileal reverse-segment procedure. This procedure after massive small-bowel resection is an alternative way to treat short bowel syndrome. but how it affects intestinal morphology in short bowel syndrome has not been investigated. The aim of this study is to investigate macroscopic and microscopic effects of reverse-segment procedure on the short bowel.
