Talk on liver, intestine transplants in kids at UA

Citizen Staff Writer

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.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
