    ABSTRACT: El Voluntariat Parotets se ejecuta durante los años 2008 a 2011, con contribución económica anual de la Obra Social de la Caja Mediterráneo-CAM destinada a los proyectos VOLCAM. A partir de 2010, la institución beneficiaria de las ayudas y responsable del proyecto es la Fundación Entomológica Torres Sala. Posteriormente, en el año 2012, el voluntariado funciona sin aportación alguna de presupuesto y cada uno de los participantes debe costearse los gastos de desplazamiento y dietas de manera individual. No obstante, el número de observaciones y prospecciones sigue avanzando. En la figura 1 se puede observar la evolución del número de voluntarios que se han adherido al proyecto, mientras que en la figura 2 se indica el número de registros aportados por el proyecto al BDBCV. Las cifras de logros obtenidas por esta iniciativa se muestran en la tabla 1. En total, un número de 70 voluntarios ha participado activamente en el proyecto durante estos últimos cinco años y ha aportado 7.813 registros (observaciones / avistamientos en su mayoría) de odonatos en la Comunitat Valenciana. Todos estos registros se encuentran accesibles a la sociedad a través de la plataforma en la web del BDBCV. Merece la pena evaluar el logro de las actividades del Voluntariat Parotets en base al conocimiento que ha transmitido en torno al grupo de los odonatos y que ha quedado reflejado en el BDBCV. El total de registros de libélulas presentes (y consultables) en esta base de datos pública de acceso libre es, hasta el día de la fecha de este informe, de 10.476 registros.

    ABSTRACT: To report the data of the Home Parenteral Nutrition (HPN) registry of the NADYA-SENPE working group for the years 2007, 2008 and 2009. We compiled the data from the on-line registry introduced by the responsible Units for the monitoring of HPN from January 1st 2007 to December 31st 2009. Included fields were: age, sex, diagnosis and reason for HPN, access path, complications, beginning and end dates, complementary oral or enteral nutrition, activity level, autonomy degree, product and fungible material supply, withdrawal reason and intestinal transplant indication. 2007: 133 patients with HPN were registered (61 males and 72 females), belonging to 21 hospitals. Average age for the 119 patients older than 13 years old was 53.7 ± 14.9 years, and 3.6 ± 3.6 y. for the 14 patients under 14 years old. Most frequent pathology was neoplasm (24%), followed by intestinal motility disorders and actinic enteritis (14% both). The reason for HPN provision was short bowel syndrome (43%), malabsorption (27%), and intestinal obstruction (23%). Tunnelled catheters were mostly used (69%), followed by implanted port-catheters (27%). Catheter related infections were the most frequent complications, with a rate of 0.92 episodes/103 HPN days. HPN was provided for more than two years in 50% of the cases. By the end of 2007, 71.4% of the patients remained active; exitus was the most frequent reason to end HPN (57.5%). 26% of the patients were eligible for intestinal transplant. 2008: 143 patients with HPN were registered (62 males and 81 females), belonging to 24 hospitals. Average age for the 133 patients older than 13 years old was 54.7 ± 13.9 years, and 3.7 ± 0.6 y. for the 10 patients under 14 years old. Most frequent pathology was neoplasm (20%), followed by actinic enteritis (14%) and intestinal motility disorders (13% ). The reason for HPN provision was short bowel syndrome (44%), malabsorption (28%), and intestinal obstruction (20%). Tunnelled catheters were mostly used (60%), followed by implanted port-catheters (29%). Catheter related infections were the most frequent complications, with a rate of 0.50 episodes/10³ HPN days. HPN was provided for more than two years in 67% of the cases. By the end of 2008, 71.6% of the patients remained active; exitus was the most frequent reason to end HPN (52.4%). 29% of the patients were eligible for intestinal transplant. 2009: 158 patients with HPN were registered (62 males and 96 females), belonging to 24 hospitals. Average age for the 149 patients older than 13 years old was 55.2 ± 13.0 years. Most frequent pathology was neoplasm (25%), followed by actinic enteritis (12%) and intestinal motility disorders (11%). The reason for HPN provision was short bowel syndrome (42%), malabsorption, and intestinal obstruction (23% both). Tunnelled catheters were mostly used (60%), followed by implanted port-catheters (36%). Catheter related infections were the most frequent complications, with a rate of 0.67 episodes/10³ HPN days. HPN was provided for more than two years in 58% of the cases. By the end of 2009, 79.2% of the patients remained active; full oral nutrition was the most frequent reason to end HPN (48%). 23% of the patients were eligible for intestinal transplant. We observe an increase in registered patients with respect to previous years, with a very different prevalence among regions. Neoplasia remains as the main pathology since 2003. We observe a decrease in catheter-related infections in the last two years, being the 2008 rate the smallest since the register's beginning.

    ABSTRACT: To present the results of the Spanish home enteral nutrition (HEN) registry of the year 2008 from the NADYA-SENPE group. We recorded the HEN registry data from January 1st to December 31st 2008. The number of patients registered in this period was 6206 (51% male) with up to 6,279 episodes of HEN, from 31 Spanish hospitals. Most of the patients (95%) were older than 14 yr. Mean age was 4.83±3.29 yr in the children group, and 70.75±18.14 yr in the adult group (older than 14 yr). Neurological disorders (39%) and cancer (27%) were the two most prevalent diagnoses. The oral route was the most frequently used (43,4%), followed by nasogastric tube (40,4%), and gastrostomy tube (14,7%). Mean length of treatment was 305,36 days (10 months). The principal reasons for discontinuing treatment were death (43%) and progress to oral diet (40%). Only 33% of the patients had a normal activity level, being limited in different grades in the rest of the patients. Most of the patients required partial (25%) or total help (38%). The enteral formula was provided by the hospital in 65% of the cases and by private pharmacies in 32%. The disposables were provided by the hospital (82,4%) and primary care services (17,2%). The number and the age of the patients registered have increased comparing to previous years, with little variations in the rest of analyzed variables. The increase in the length of treatment could reflect misreporting of the weaning process in the registry.

    ABSTRACT: To describe the Home Enteral Nutrition Characteristics (HEN) recorded by the group NADYA-SENPE during 2009. collection and analysis of the data voluntary recorded in the HEN registry from the NADYA-SENPE group from January 1st to December 31st. 6.540 HEN patients were registered, 5.11% more than the previous year and 6,649 episodes (3,135 in women, 47,93%) from 32 different hospitals. 6,238 of them (95,38%) were over 14 years. The mean age of the patients under 14 yr was 3,67 ± 2,86 and it was 72,10 ± 16,89 in those over 14 yr group. The base illness registered more frequently was the neurological disorders in 2,732 (41,77%) patients, followed by cancer patients in 1,838; 28,10%. The enteral access route was registered in 1,123 (17,17%) of the episodes, being more frequent the administration by nasogastric tube 562 (50,04%). The mean length of nutritional treatment by episode was 323 days (10,77 months). 606 episodes of HEN ended, being the principal reasons for discontinuing treatment the patient death in 295 (48,68%) occasions. The transition to oral feeding occurred in 219 (36,14%) cases. Patients maintained normal activity in 2162 (32,55%) HEN episodes and 2,468 (37,13%) cases were living "bed-couch". The level of dependence was "total" in 2,598 (39,07%) of the episodes recorded. The nutritional formula was provided by the hospital in 4,183 (62,91%) cases and by the reference pharmacy in 2,262 (el 34,02%). Consumables were provided by the hospital in 3,531 (53,11%) cases. The number of HEN patients recorded increased from the year 2008, continuing the gradual growth increase since the start of registration. The characteristics of the patients remain in the same profile as in previous years.

    ABSTRACT: To report the data of the Home Parenteral Nutrition (HPN) registry of the NADYA-SENPE working group for the year 2006. We compiled the data from the on-line registry introduced by the responsible Units for the monitoring of HPN from January 1st to December 31st 2006. 103 patients with HPN were registered (47 males and 56 females), belonging to 19 hospitals. Average age for the 91 patients older than 14 years old was 53.3 +/- 14.9 years old, and that for the 12 patients under 14 years old was 2 +/- 0 years old. Most frequent pathology was neoplasm (29%), followed by intestinal motility disorders (13%). The reason for HPN provision was short bowel syndrome (40%), intestinal obstruction (22%), and malabsorption (21%). Tunneled catheters were mostly used (45%), followed by implanted port-catheters (32%). Catheter related infections were the most frequent complications, with a rate of 0.85 episodes / 10(3) days. HPD was provided for more than two years in 50% of the cases. By the end of 2006, 70.9% of the patients remained active; exitus was the most frequent reason to end HPN (53%). Complementary oral or enteral nutrition was provided to 52% of the patients. 48% of the patients had a normal activity level, and a 55% were autonomous. PN formula was supplied by the hospital in 82% of the cases, while this number was 78% for fungible materials. 27% of the patients were eligible for intestinal transplant. We observe an increase in registered patients with respect to previous years, with a very different prevalence among regions. Neoplasia remains as the main pathology since 2003. We observe a decrease in catheter-related infections with respect to the 2004-2005 period.

Material y métodos: Recopila-ción de los datos del registro "on-line" introducidos desde el 1 de enero al 31 de diciembre de 2006. Resultados: Se registra-ron 103 pacientes con NPD (47 hombres y 56 mujeres), perte-necientes a 19 centros hospitalarios. Edad media: 53,3 ± 14,9 años (para los 91 pacientes ≥ 14 años, y 2 ± 0 años (para los 12 pacientes > 14 años). Patología más frecuente: neoplasia (29%) seguida de alteraciones de la motilidad intestinal (13%). Motivo de indicación: 40% síndrome de intestino corto, seguido de obstrucción intestinal (22%) y malabsorción (21%). Catéteres más utilizados: tunelizados (45%) y reser-vorios subcutáneos (32%). Complicaciones mas frecuentes: sépticas relacionadas con el catéter (0,85 infecciones por cada mil días de NPD). Duración de la NPD: > 2 años en el 50% de casos. Al acabar el año seguía en activo el 70,9% de los pacien-tes; la muerte fue la principal causa de la finalización de la NPD (53%). El 52% de los pacientes recibíeron alimentación oral o enteral complementaria. El 48% de los pacientes tenían un nivel de actividad normal, siendo autónomos el 55% del total. El hospital suministró la formula de NP en el 82% de los casos y el material fungible en el 78%. Se consideraron candi-datos a trasplante intestinal el 27% de los pacientes. Conclu-siones: Se observa un aumento de los pacientes registrados respecto a años anteriores con una prevalencia muy variable según comunidades autónomas. La principal patología sigue siendo la neoplasia, que ocupa el primer lugar desde 2003. Se aprecia una disminución de las complicaciones sépticas rela-cionadas con el catéter respecto a 2004 y 2005.

    ABSTRACT: We analyse the registered data of home parenteral nutrition (HPN) in our country during the year 2001. The data were collected through a previously designed questionnaire. Apart from epidemiological information, the form includes the disease to prescribe this treatment, the specific nutritional treatment used and its duration, access path, complications and readmission rate in hospital, follow-up of the treatment, and progress. All data were processed and analysed by the co-ordinating team. Seventeen hospitals participated, and 66 patients were enrolled. Middle age was 5.5 +/- 4.9 years for patients < 14 years old, and 49.2 +/- 15.8 years for those > or = 14 years old. The more prevalent diagnosis were: ischemic bowel (28.9%), neoplasm (22.7%), radiation enteritis (12.1%), motility disorders (4.5%) and Crohn's disease (4.5%). The mean time on HPN was 8.4 +/- 4.5 months. Tunnelled catheter was the preferential route (62.1%), followed by the implantated one (33.3%). The intermittent method (nocturnal) was preferential (81.8%). Patients receive the formula, mainly from hospital pharmacy (75.7%). The complications related to nutrition (1.3/patient) included the infections (0.46 sepsis/patient, and 0.19 catheter contamination/patients), mechanic (0.15/patient), metabolic (0.1/patient) and electrolytic disorders (0.07/patient). The readmission rate, for nutritional problems, was 1.34/patient. At the end of the year, 74.2% of the patients remained in the HPN program, and 25.8% abandoned the treatment (due to death: 52.9%, and to progress to oral feeding (25.3%). This review illustrates that the registration of HPN patients in our country is standing (1.65 patients/10(6) habitants), that vascular pathology is the more frequent diagnoses in HPN patients, and the rate of readmission and complications and the behaviour is similar to other series making this as a safe treatment in our place.

    ABSTRACT: We analyze the registered data of home parenteral nutrition (HPN) in our country during the year 2000. The data were collected through a previously designed questionnaire. Apart from epidemiological information, the form includes the disease to prescribe this treatment, the specific nutritional treatment used and its duration, access path, complications and readmission rate in hospital, follow-up of the treatment, and progress. All data were processed and analysed by the co-ordinating team. Fourteen hospitals participated, and 67 patients were enrolled. Middle age was 5 +/- 4 years for patients < 14 years old, and 48 +/- 15 years for those > or = 14 years old. The more prevalent diagnosis were: ischemic bowel (28.4%), neoplasm (16.4%), radiation enteritis (13.4%), motility disorders (7.5%), Crohn's disease (2.9%), and other. The mean time on HPN was 7.5 +/- 4.4 months. Tunelized catheter was the preferential route (77.6%), followed by the implantated one (20.9%). The intermittent method (nocturnal) was preferential (91.0%). Patients receive the formula from hospital pharmacy more frequently than from Nutriservice (71.5% versus 19.4%). The complications related to nutrition (0.32/100 days of HPN) included the infections (0.12 catheter sepsis/100 d of HPN), metabolic (0.06/100 d of HPN), mechanic (0.03/100 d of HPN) and electrolitic disorders (0.03/100 d of HPN). The readmission rate, for nutritional problems, was 0.3 hospitalizations/100 d of HPN. At the end of the year, 61.2% of the patients remained in the HPN program, 37.3% abandoned the treatment (due to death (40%), to progress to oral feeding (48%), and to progress to enteral nutrition (4%); and 1.5% of the patients were not follow up. This review illustrates that there is an increment in the registration of HPN patients in our country (1997: 0.7 patients/10(6) habitants, 2000: 1.9 patients/10(6) habitants), that vascular pathology is the more frequent diagnoses in HPN patients, and the rate of readmission and complications and the behaviour is similar to other series making this as a safe treatment in our place.

    ABSTRACT: By means of a simplified questionnaire, the NADYA group has gathered and analyzed data with regard to the age, sex, diagnosis, access route, duration, form of administration, complications, and quality of life, in 812 patients (62% male; 37% female) with At Home Enteral Nutrition (AHEN), and 19 patients (42% male; 57% female) with At Home Parenteral Nutrition (AHPN) corresponding the National Registry of 1995. The most frequent indication of AHEN was a neoplasm (41%), followed by neurological alterations (33%). The most common access route is the NGT (37%) followed by oral administration in 37%, PEG in 13% and surgical ostomics in 8%. The mean treatment time is 8 months. The index of complications/patient-year is 0.50 (gasterointestinal 0.17, and mechanical alterations 0.9). At the end of the study, 63% of the patients continued to receive AHEN, showing a mortality rate of 70%. The majority of the patients undergoing treatment presented a sever social disability (20%) or were bed ridden (18%). The most common indications for the AHPN are: radical enteritis (26%), Crohn's disease (21%), and mesenteric ischemia (16%). AIDS, motility alterations, and neoplasic diseases are scantly represented (10%). Tunneled catheters are used in 58% of the cases, and Port-a-Cath in 31%). The mean duration for the treatment was 7.9 months. An index of 0.47 hospitalization/patient-year was seen in relation to the nutritional treatment (mainly due to catheter septicemia). A mortality of 16% is noted, and 21% show a recovery of the oral route. 42% of the patients did not present an assessable social disability.

    ABSTRACT: To report the results of the Home-based Parenteral Nutrition (HBPN) registry of the NADYA-SENPE working group, for the year 2003. Gathering of registry data introduced by all units responsible of HBPN patient care. This an on-line registry available for authorized users of the working group web page (www.nadya-senpe.com). Epidemiological data, diagnosis, access route, complications, hospital admissions, disability degree, and course at December 31st, 2003 Data from 86 patients (62% female and 38% male) from 17 hospitals were gathered. Mean age of adult patients was 50.7 +/- 15.0 years, whereas for patients younger than 14 years was 2.4 +/- 1.5 years (n = 5 patients). Diseases that prone HBPN were neoplasm (21%), followed by mesenteric ischemia (20%), radiation enteritis (16.3%), motility impairments (10.5%), and Crohn's disease (4.6%). Tunneled catheters were used in 66.3% of the cases versus 29.1% of subcutaneous reservoirs. Mean treatment duration has been 8.5 +/- 4.6 months; 67.4% of patients had been on HBPN for a period of time longer than 6 months. Patient follow-up was mostly done from the reference area hospital (88.4%). In no case patient follow-up was done by the primary care team or by specialists other than those prescribing nutritional support. Nutritional support-related complications were seen in 98 occasions. The most frequent complications were infectious ones. They represented 1.60 hospital admissions per patient. The mean number of visits was 7.9 per patient (6.4 for scheduled visits and 1.5 for emergency visits). By the end of the year, we observed that 73.3% of the patients were still on the program, whereas in 23.3% HBPN had been withdrawn. The main reasons for withdrawal were decease (11 patients), and advancing to oral diet (9 patients). As for the disability degree, 13% were confined to a wheelchair or bed, and only 28% had no disability degree or only mild social disability. We observed a mild increase in HBPN prevalence rate in Spain (2.15 patients pmp). The main indication was cancer followed by short-bowel syndrome secondary to vascular pathology. Nutritional support-related complications were common, especially those of an infectious origin.

    ABSTRACT: To report on the results of the Registry on Home-based Parenteral Nutrition (HPN) of the NADYA-SENPE working group, corresponding to the year 2002. Compilation of the registry data loaded by the Units in charge of HPN patients care. It consists of an on-line registry available to the registered users of the group's web page (www.nadya-senpe.com). Epidemiological, diagnostic, access route, complications, hospital admissions, degree of disability, and course until December 31st of 2002. Data from 74 patients were gathered (56.8% women and 43.2% men), from 18 hospital centers. Mean age of adult patients was 49.4 +/- 15.5 years and 2.3-1.1 years for patients younger than 14 years (n=3 patients). Diseases that prompted the use of HPN were mesenteric ischemia (29.7%), followed by neoplasms (16.2%), radiation enteritis (12.2%), motility impairments (8.1%), and Crohn's disease (5.4%). Tunneled catheters were used in 52.7% of cases, as compared to 36.5% of subcutaneous reservoirs. Mean treatment duration was 8.7 +/- 4.4 months; 68.9% of patients remained on HPN for a duration longer than 6 months, and in 41.9% longer than one year. Patients' follow-up was mainly done from the reference hospital (87.8%), and the remaining patients (12.5%) by the home care team. In no case patients were followed by the primary care team or other specialists than the ones that prescribed nutritional support. In 94 cases there were complications related to nutritional therapy. The more frequent complications presented were infectious. These complications represented 1.84 admissions per patient. The mean number of visits was 12.9 per patient (10.2 routinary visits and 2.7 emergency visits). At the end of the year, we observed that 74.3% patients stayed in the program, whereas in the remaining 23.6% HPN had been discontinued. The main causes for discontinuation were death (52.9%), and switch to oral diet (23.5%) or enteral nutrition (11.8%). With regards to disability degree, 16.1% were confined to a wheelchair or bed, and 17.6% had no disability at all or only a mild social disability. We observed a sustained HPN prevalence rate in Spain (1.8 patient pmp). The main cause for its use was short bowel syndrome secondary to vascular disease, followed by cancer. Complications associated to nutritional therapy were common, especially of infectious origin.

    ABSTRACT: The NADYA-SENPE Working Group analyzed the registered data of patients on Home Enteral Nutrition (HEN) in our country, during year 2001. The data were collected through a closed questionnaire included on our web site (www.nadya-senpe.com). Apart from epidemiological information, the form includes the indication to prescribe this treatment, the specific nutritional treatment used and its duration, access path, complications and readmission rate in hospital, follow-up of the treatment, patient's quality of life and progress. All data were processed and analyzed by the coordinating team. Twenty two hospitals participated and 3,458 patients, aged 5.6 +/- 4.0 y for those younger than 14 y, and 67.1 +/- 19.5 y for those older than 14 y, were enrolled. Of these patients, 43.4% were diagnosed with neurological diseases and 33.5% with cancer. The mean time on HEN was 6.5 +/- 4.5 months. Oral nutrition was the preferential route (54.5%), followed by nasoenteral tube (32.3%), and in 13.3% ostomy tubes were placed. Polymeric was the formula composition mainly used (85.9%). Patients were followed (71.1%) by the hospital reference Nutritional Support Unit. The complications related to nutrition included mainly the gastrointestinal (0.16 complications/patient), and the mechanical one (0.15 complications/patient). At the end for the year, 48.3% of the patients were in the HEN program, and in 33.3% HEN was finish due to different reasons. In 22.9% of the patients no, o light, discapacity degree was found. Neurological diseases and cancer were the more frequent diagnoses in HEN patients. Oral access was the higher feeding route due, probably, to the high prevalence of cancer patients. In spite of the elevated prevalence of neurological diseases, a few number of patients, as previous years, were feed with ostomy tube. Due to the few complications observed, HEN is a safe treatment in our country.

    ABSTRACT: Using a simplified questionnaire from the NADYA group, data referring to age, sex, diagnosis, access route, duration, form of administration, complications, and quality of life have been gathered from 1,400 patients (57% male, 43% female) who receive home enteral nutrition, and from 38 patients (20% male and 18% female) who receive home parenteral nutrition. All of these patients come from the 1996 national registry. The most common indication for home enteral nutrition are neoplasias (39%) followed by neurological alterations (33%). The most common access route is oral (48%), followed by a nasogastric tube in 34%, PEG in 10% and surgical ostomies in 7%. The average treatment duration is 6 months. There is an index of 0.74 complications/patient-year (gastrointestinal 0.28 and mechanical alterations 0.19). At the end of the year 58% of the patients continued to use at home enteral nutrition, with a death rate of 17%. The majority of the treated patients presented a severe social disability (28%) or was bed-ridden (22%). The most common indications for home parenteral nutrition are: neoplasia (42%), Crohn_s disease (10%), and mesenteric ischemia (10%). AIDS (8%), radical enteritis (5%), and motility disorders (5%) are less common. In 42% of the cases tunneled catheters are used, and port-a-cath are used in 53%. The average treatment duration is 6.9 months. 1.06 hospitalizations/patient-year have been registered in relation to the nutritional treatment (mainly catheter sepsis). A mortality of 29% is registered, and there is recovery of the oral route in 7.9% of the cases. 50% of the patients present a severe social disability.
