Please refer to The Insides® System Instructions for Use and Patient Management sections in the training hub.

Rehabilitating an atrophied distal gut and initiating chyme reinfusion stretches the luminal walls of the intestine. This stretch can generate a diffuse abdominal discomfort, nausea, and bloated feeling for the patient. The longer they have been defunctioned, the increased level of atrophy and subsequent symptoms the patient will experience. Following the provided guideline on increasing tolerance will reduce the symptoms for the patient, ensure patient compliance, and rehabilitate the patient’s gut within one to three weeks. Once the gut has been rehabilitated, these symptoms should resolve.
