Since its introduction as an alternative intestinal lengthening technique, the serial transverse enteroplasty (STEP) procedure has been used increasingly as the surgical treatment of choice for children with short bowel syndrome (SBS). On the other hand, there are few report of its efficacy in adults with SBS, particularly those who have previously undergone a gastrectomy. This case report describes a 34-year-old woman with a short bowel after an esophagectomy and total gastrectomy due to lye ingestion followed by an extensive intestinal resection due to small bowel strangulation. The STEP procedure was performed successfully and the small intestine was lengthened from 55 to 75 cm. The patient tolerated the procedure well and was weaned off total parenteral nutrition. The frequency and characteristics of diarrhea improved, and her weight remained acceptable via management with intermittent parenteral nutritional support for 6 months postoperatively. This case suggests that the STEP procedure should be considered for gastrectomized patients with SBS.
