Bowel transplant talk at UA

Until now, there was scant hope for children who suffer from irreversible small-bowel failure in Arizona.

But soon, University of Arizona Medical Center will offer the lifesaving treatment of full intestine and liver transplant, and the surgeon heading the team will speak on the topic from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday.

Khalid Khan, associate professor of surgery and pediatrics in UA’s Department of Surgery and director of the Pediatric Liver and Intestinal Transplantation Program, will speak on “Innovations in Liver and Intestine Transplantation in Infants” in the DuVal Auditorium, 1501 N. Campbell Ave.

Small-bowel transplantation is performed to restore intestinal function when the organ fails due to illness or trauma and intravenous feeding no longer is successful or the patient’s quality of life is extremely poor.

For more information, call 626-7219.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
