    Small bowel transplantation is acknowledged as auto- and allotransplantation. In both instances, there is up to a 4%-10% risk of postoperative ischemia, and as the small bowel is extremely susceptible to ischemia, the timely diagnosis of ischemia is important. The location of the transplant,...
