During the first four years of our program, we have treated over fifty patients with ARS. The average age of our patients was 15 years, and on average, patients suffered from ARS for around 21 months before admission to our program. Fifty-two percent were admitted on feeding tubes or TPN.
The average length of admission was 10 days. By the end of admission, 86% 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, 92% 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.
