WANDEN-BERGHE, Carmina  and  GRUPO NADYA-SENPE et al. Home Parenteral Nutrition in Spain, 2015: home and Ambulatory Artificial Nutrition (NADYA) Group report. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2016, vol.33, n.6, pp.1487-1490. ISSN 1699-5198.

Aim: To communicate the results of the Spanish Home Parenteral Nutrition (HEN) registry of the NADYA-SENPE group for the year 2015. 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 2015. Results: Two hundred and thirty-six patients with 243 episodes of NPD were recorded from 40 hospitals. This represents a rate of 5.08 patients/million habitants for 2015. The most frequent pathology in adults was other (26.3%) followed by palliative oncological (21.6%). The most common complication was catheter-related sepsis which presented a rate of 0.53 infections/1,000 days of HPN. Sixty-four episodes were finished; the main cause was death (43.7%) and resuming to oral via (32.8%). Conclusions: we find increasing centers and professional partners, responding to the progressively more patients with parenteral nutrition support at home. The main indications for the establishment of NPD and causes termination of treatment remain stable.
