- InterventionsMeasurement of small and large intestinal length during laparotomy. Small and large intestines will be measured in situ along the antimesenteric border using a 3-0 suture. Then a ruler will be used to measure the small intestinal and large intestinal lengths. Also measurement of weight and height at time of surgery.
- Primary outcomeValidation of norms for small intestinal and colon length in children from birth to five years of age.
- Secondary outcome1. Evaluation of height and the corresponding formula as the best predictor for small and large intestinal length in children;
2. Evaluation of the role of co-variables, such as gender and prematurity.
- TimepointsIntestinal length will be measured once during surgery.

- Brief summaryQuantifying intestinal length is amongst other factors important in the prognosis of short bowel syndrome. Until recently, existing data on pediatric intestinal length are limited because they report postmortem values. Therefore we evaluated small intestinal and colon length in children from birth to five years of age during laparotomy. We used age, height and weight as predictors. Norms for intestinal length were developed and analysis showed that height was the best predictor for small intestinal and colon length. These data will be validated in this new prospective cohort study.
