- •44% of patients achieved enteral autonomy (EA) following autologous gastrointestinal reconstructive (AGIR) surgery.
- •Percentage of expected of small bowel length (≥15%) before AGIR is a strong predictor of achievement of EA.
- •The AGIR technique employed did not influence weaning from parenteral nutrition.
- •Aetiology of short bowel syndrome (gastroschisis) can affect outcomes and a tailored, multi-disciplinary approach is recommended.
