Поэтому в комплексном лечении БЭ важную роль играет восполнение белково-энергетической не-достаточности, коррекция водно-электролитных нарушений у детей раннего возраста, остеоиндук-тивная терапия (витамин D 3 , препараты кальция), а также хирургическое лечение вторичных стрик-тур желудочно-кишечного тракта [18].…”
