Abstract

It is essential that children on prolonged parenteral nutrition for anatomical or functional loss of small bowel should enjoy a quality of life which is as normal as possible. Their return home is a major factor in this. Over the past 8 years, 112 children were able to remain at home on cyclic parenteral nutrition. Forty-nine of them are no longer on home parenteral nutrition (HPN), 45 are still on HPN, and 18 have died. Growth and quality of life were good in most cases. Most of the complications were from infection, 1 septicaemia per 594 days on HPN. In the light of these results, HPN seems to be the best option for children requiring prolonged parenteral nutrition, although it can only be considered within the framework of a specialized centre, which ensures patient follow-up, and provides the logistical support required for this high-technology treatment.
