  • Overview

    Multivisceral transplant entails the transplant of nearly all the abdominal organs, with the exception of the kidneys. It is a highly unusual procedure, with only about 30-40 such surgeries occurring per year in the United States, compared to thousands of liver transplants performed annually, in only about seven transplant centers in the United States. Host Dr. Aaron Carroll welcomes Dr. Rodrigo Vianna, director of intestinal and multivisceral transplant at Indiana University Health, to discuss when multivisceral transplant can be used to treat patients with rare tumors, such as neuroendorcrine or desmoid tumors.
