In the area of clinical research, Lurie Children’s is one of 15 centers in North America participating in the Pediatric Intestinal Failure Consortium (PIFCON). This study aims to retrospectively and prospectively study the pediatric intestinal failure population, including the medical, surgical, nutritional and therapeutic management of those patients. Another aim of this collaborative effort is to create a multi-center registry of patients with intestinal failure. Riccardo Superina, MD, Co-director of the Siragusa Transplantation Center, is site principal investigator for this study.
