In patients undergoing small bowel transplantation, the current consensus is to avoid transplanting patients with insufficient vascular patency to guarantee easy central venous access for up to 6 months following transplantation. Here we present the case of a patient who received an intestinal transplant despite obstruction of the superior vena cava (SVC). The complicated post-operative outcome supports the view that these patients should be transplanted when easy central venous access is available.
