In brief: Intestine only

In an isolated small bowel transplant only the small bowel is transplanted.
Other bowel transplants may involve the stomach, duodenum, pancreas or liver.

In brief: SBTx

An isolated intestine is a small bowel allograft usually transplanted for short gut.
If the liver has also failed, it is also included, usually as a multivisceral cluster including liver, pancreas, duodenum and small intestine (+\- the stomach). Less often, a modified mvt without the liver is appropriate.
