Abstract: Patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc) may develop significant gastrointestinal involvement (GI). When severe, this can lead to intestinal failure (IF) requiring home parenteral nutrition (HPN). However, few outcome data are reported for these patients (1,2,3). Records were reviewed of all patients with SSc who required HPN, at a national IF centre, between 1990 and 2012. Disease characteristics and survival/outcome data were evaluated. 25 patients (5 male, median age: 55 (range 24-76)) with SSc received HPN (… Show more

“…The annual risk of catheter-related sepsis among HPN patients is consistently around 0.5 per 1000 catheter days but tends to be higher among those with chronic pseudo-obstruction, especially if they remain on opioid analgesia 103 144 ; by contrast, patients with systemic sclerosis who may tend to have lower opioid requirements have lower catheter infection rates. 145 Over half of those with pseudo-obstruction receiving HPN will be alive at 10 years. 146…”
