Abstract

We report our experience with home enteral nutrition in children. Over the past 2 years 18 children were fed enterally at home after hospital training provided to their parents. These patients had mainly gastrointestinal diseases, short bowel syndrome, gastroesophageal reflux, and severe protracted diarrhea. In 16 patients a nasogastric tube was used while in the other 2 patients we performed gastrostomy. In all cases a hydrolysate formula (semi-elemental) and/or an elemental diet was employed. Home enteral nutrition up till now lasted 3480 days with a mean total period per patient of 193 days. Metabolic, infectious or mechanical side effects have not been observed. Generally a good familiar compliance has been observed. It appears that home enteral nutrition in children is a well accepted technique, which guarantees an improvement in quality of life and also a remarkable reduction of the economic burden to the community and the family.
