Infant & Toddler Short Gut Feeding Outcomes Study
The purpose of this study is to better understand why children with short gut develop feeding problems.
Short Bowl Syndrome
Home Parenteral Nutrition Following Initial Hospital Discharge
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Retrospective
|Official Title:||Infant & Toddler Short Gut Feeding Outcomes Study|
- Retrospective data [ Time Frame: up to 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Data will be reviewed starting at the patient's birth. We will only be looking at patients who have been seen in the clinic since July 1, 2008; some of these will have medical records going back as early as 2006. We will continue to collect future data for up to 1 year from the beginning of data collection.
- Validated Questionnaires [ Time Frame: 2 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Validated questionnaires (where available) will be administered prospectively to grade current feeding competence for age, assess developmental status, assess food preferences and score parental stress
|Study Start Date:||April 2013|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||April 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
We seek to identify characteristics of our patients' histories that are associated with feeding problems in the context of availability of early prophylactic occupational therapy. We plan to review our most recent four years' experience in children with short gut syndrome with onset in early infancy who initially required home parenteral nutrition to identify risk factors or clusters of risk factors associated with food aversion.
