PUIGGROS, C.  and  GRUPO NADYA-SENPE et al. Spanish registry of Home-based Parenteral Nutrition during 2006 (NADYA-SENPE Group). Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2008, vol.23, n.1, pp.6-11. ISSN 1699-5198.

Objective: To report the data of the Home Parenteral Nutrition (HPN) registry of the NADYA-SENPE working group for the year 2006. Methodology: We compiled the data from the on-line registry introduced by the responsible Units for the monitoring of HPN from January 1st to December 31st 2006. Results: 103 patients with HPN were registered (47 males and 56 females), belonging to 19 hospitals. Average age for the 91 patients older than 14 years old was 53.3 ± 14.9 years old, and that for the 12 patients under 14 years old was 2 ± 0 years old. Most frequent pathology was neoplasm (29%), followed by intestinal motility disorders (13%). The reason for HPN provision was short bowel syndrome (40%), intestinal obstruction (22%), and malabsorption (21%). Tunneled catheters were mostly used (45%), followed by implanted port-catheters (32%). Catheter related infections were the most frequent complications, with a rate of 0.85 episodes / 103 days. HPD was provided for more than two years in 50% of the cases. By the end of 2006, 70.9% of the patients remained active; exitus was the most frequent reason to end HPN (53%). Complementary oral or enteral nutrition was provided to 52% of the patients. 48% of the patients had a normal activity level, and a 55% were autonomous. PN formula was supplied by the hospital in 82% of the cases, while this number was 78% for fungible materials. 27% of the patients were eligible for intestinal transplant. Conclusions: We observe an increase in registered patients with respect to previous years, with a very different prevalence among regions. Neoplasia remains as the main pathology since 2003. We observe a decrease in catheter-related infections with respect to the 2004-2005 period.
