This article provides an overview of the pathophysiology, causes, investigations, and management of high-output enterostomy and enterocutaneous fistula. High-output stoma and enterocutaneous fistula can result in intestinal failure and this is often fatal if not managed properly. The management involves reducing fluid losses, providing nutrients with(More)
INTRODUCTION Patients who have a bowel resection for mesenteric infarction may require parenteral nutrition (PN). This study primarily aimed to determine the aetiological factors for a mesenteric infarction and the effects of restoring bowel continuity on the long-term PN requirements. METHODS A retrospective review of data on patients treated for(More)
Background/Objectives:Patients with a short bowel and receiving parenteral nutrition (PN) have an increased risk of chronic cholestasis (CC). Restoration of bowel continuity after a mesenteric infarction results in PN requirements being reduced or stopped. This study aimed to determine the prevalence of CC and whether restoring bowel continuity reduced the(More)
