Parenteral nutrition in short bowel syndrome and in digestive tract fistulas

Belnome N. A., La Malfa G., Bartolo V.


PDF


Two fairly frequent pathologies, short bowel syndrome and digestive fistulas, which involve lengthy periods of nutritional support therapy before achieving intestinal adaptation or cure in the case of digestive fistulas, are described. Nowadays, nutritional programmes can be carried out with excellent guarantees of success and with satisfaction on the part of the patient including when the regime is applied at home. All this leads to healthy savings on health expenditure, at the same time maintaining an excellent quality standard thanks to the programmes adopted by the various Health Service units.
