Results: in this period 3 223 patients (50.6% men) and a total of 3 272 episodes of HEN were registered in 33 Spanish hospitals. The rate of prevalence was of 67,11 patients/million habitants/ year 2013. A high percentage of patients (98,24%) were older than 14 years. Adult's mean age was 69,14 years (sd 17,64) and men were younger than women p-value <0,001. Children mean age was 2,38 years (sd 4,35). The most frequent indication for HEN was neurological disease for children (49,1%).and for adults (60,6%). Gastrostomy was the most used administration route for children (51%) while younger ones were fed with NGT (p-value 0,003) also older adults (48%) were fed with this type of tube (p-value <0,001). The most frequent reasons for cessation of treatment was death, 44,4% were children and 54,7% were adults.Conclusions: The number of patients and hospitals registered increased in the last years while the other variables maintain steady.
