Israel’s first small intestine transplant

Surgeons at Israel’s Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Campus in Petah Tikva have performed the first-ever successful transplant in Israel of a small intestine. The patient was a 39-year-old woman who had been fed through a vein since her own intestine was removed two years ago. The donor was an 11-year-old Israeli girl whose other organs saved four children.
