Gangrenous intestine lost to gangrape, victim gets hope from pvt hospital


Intestinal failure is normally treated by giving parenteral nutrition.

However intravenous feeding has to be given through a central venous line (an intravenous catheter placed into one of the large veins of the body) and complications develop over a period of time, Dr Mehta said.

"The central venous catheter tends to get infected over a period of time. These infections can be life-threatening. Over a period of time parenteral nutrition damages the liver. Too long a delay at this point will result in liver failure.

Intestinal transplant is recommended before the liver is permanently damaged," he added.
