Rumination Syndrome Outcomes :: Nationwide Children's Hospital

Rumination Syndrome Program Outcomes

During the first six years of our program, we have treated over 80 patients with RS from 30 states and Canada. The average age of our patients was 16 years, and on average, patients suffered from RS for between 3 months and 13 years before admission to our program. Forty eight percent were admitted on feeding tubes or TPN.

The average length of admission was 9 days. By the end of admission, 87% of patients were able to keep down at least 80% of their daily required calories and fluid. Of the patients who were admitted with feeding tubes or TPN, 83% of patients left the program no longer needing supplemental feedings.

Our research group currently is conducting a study to examine the long-term outcomes of patients who were a part of our program.
