In this episode of Bowel Sounds, hosts Dr. Temara Hajjat and Dr. Peter Lu talk to Dr. Sam Kocoshis about caring for children with intestinal failure and intestinal rehabilitation. Dr. Kocoshis is a Professor of Pediatrics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center and the Medical Director of the Intestinal Care Center and the Small Bowel Transplantation Program. We talk to him about the management of children with short bowel syndrome, including recent advances in promotion of intestinal adaptation, prevention of central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs), detection and treatment of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), and prevention of intestinal failure-associated liver disease. We also discuss the indications for small bowel transplantation and a brief history of this procedure. Finally Dr. Kocoshis gives advice for trainees and junior faculty.
As always, the discussion, views, and recommendations in this podcast are the sole responsibility of the hosts and guests and are subject to change over time with advances in the field.
