WANDEN-BERGHE, Carmina  and  NADYA-SENPE et al. Home and ambulatory artificial nutrition (NADYA) group report: home parenteral nutrition in Spain, 2014. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2015, vol.32, n.6, pp.2380-2384. ISSN 1699-5198.

Aim: to communicate the results of the Spanish Home Parenteral Nutrition (HEN) registry of the NADYASENPE group for the year 2014. Material and methods: data was recorded online by NADYA group collaborators that were responsible of the HPN follow-up from 1st January to 31st December 2014. Results: a total of 220 patients and 229 episodes of HPN were registered from 37 hospitals that represents a rate of 4.7 patients/million habitants/year 2014. The most frequent disease in adults was other diseases (23.3%), neoplasm (20.4%) followed by radical active neoplasm (11.8%) and mesenteric ischemia (10.9%). The most frequent diagnosis for children were the congenital intestinal disorders (33.3%) followed by traumatic short bowel and other diagnosis. Conclusions: the number of participating centers and registered patients increased progressively respect to preceding years. We consider that the HPN should be regulated by the Sanitary Administration within the framework of the National Health Service Interregional Council. And its inclusion in the portfolio of health services of the different Autonomous Comunities would be beneficial for patients and professionals.
