BACKGROUND In necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), (sub)mucosal edema, hemorrhage, ulceration, or necrosis will disturb intestinal integrity, as reflected by an increased intestinal permeability. Enteral substrate is therefore withheld for a variable period up to 3 weeks (in many clinics). The authors used the sugar absorption test to measure intestinal permeability changes in surgically treated necrotizing enterocolitis patients and surgical controls to evaluate the usefulness of this test in… CONTINUE READING
