Abstract

Background & aims: Indications and timing for referral for intestinal transplantation (ITx) were investigated through a review of the literature on home parenteral nutrition (HPN) for benign intestinal failure and a benchmarking to the results of a prospective European survey which evaluated the appropriateness of the current indications for ITx. Methods: Manuscripts reporting outcomes of adults and children on HPN were retrieved through a PubMed search. Data from the European survey were compared with those on HPN reported in the literature, and with those on ITx reported by the USA registry and by the Pittsburgh center. Results: HPN is a safe treatment with a high probability of survival. The risk of death during HPN is increased by the absence of a specialist team, and appears greater during the early period of treatment. Survival probability is decreased in patients with: age >40 or
