This represents a rate of 5.08 patients/million habitants for 2015. The most frequent pathology in adults was other (26.3%) followed by palliative oncological (21.6%). The most common complication was catheter-related sepsis which presented a rate of 0.53 infections/1,000 days of HPN. Sixty-four episodes were finished; the main cause was death (43.7%) and resuming to oral via (32.8%).Conclusions: we find increasing centers and professional partners, responding to the progressively more patients with parenteral nutrition support at home.
