Abstract

Children with short bowel syndrome have significant changes to their intestinal microbiota after intestinal loss. The purpose of this article is to understand the potential implications of these changes on gut function, hepatic cholestasis and overall nutrition. Possible therapies to restore the commensal bacterial community in these patients will also be reviewed.
