Investigating about the current practice of managing the catheter related blood stream infection during HPN
We would like to invite you to participate in this international survey promoted by the Home Artificial Nutrition and Chronic Intestinal Failure special interest group of ESPEN (European Society of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition).

Home parenteral nutrition (HPN) is the gold standard treatment for chronic intestinal failure (CIF), when nutritional requirements are not accomplished by oral or enteral feeding. CIF results either from removal, and/or severe disease of the small intestine leading to short bowel syndrome (SBS), or when the gut is intact but cannot be used by enteral support even when accessed through gastrostomy or jejunostomy (e.g.: chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction or diseases involving extensive villous atrophy).

The ESPEN guidelines on HPN and on CIF give recommendations on the prevention and managing of central venous catheter related bloodstream infection (CRBSI), the most frequent major complication of HPN. These recommendations are translated in clinical practice protocols at the local levels. Therefore, even though complications associated to CIF and HPN are well known, practice is “center dependent”. With the arrival of new catheter locks it seems essential to know the current differences.


We aim to collect data on your clinical opinion regarding prevention, diagnosis and treatment of CRBSI, in order to assess the broad range of attitudes of clinicians involved in the care of this complication occurring in patients with HPN in patients on HPN.
