Short bowel syndrome (SBS) is a pathologic condition which is characterized by reduced intestinal length and diminished intestinal absorptive capacity mainly due to extensive surgical resection, congenital defect, or pathological process affecting the small bowel. In recent decades, a better understanding of the underlying pathophysiology, new and modified surgical techniques and improvements in enteral and parenteral nutritional support improved the results of therapy of patients with SBS. This book provides research on the etiology, symptoms, surgical options and outcomes, and complications of SBS. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
