is higher overall (36% at 1 year) and outcome varies according to age and condition. The outcome data for two common conditions in adults and children receiving HETF are shown in Table 6.

Assessments of quality of life, using EuroQol, suggest that the majority of patients receiving HETF and HPN have some problems (moderate or extreme) with mobility, self care, usual activities, pain/discomfort, and anxiety/depression (five EuroQol dimensions). Mean quality-of-life scores (0, 'worst imaginable health state'; 100, 'best imaginable health state') in adults receiving HPN (53 ± 18) are higher than those for adults receiving HETF (42 ± 27), but both are considerably lower than the scores obtained from the general population, even when adjusting for age. For HETF patients, quality-of-life scores have been found to be similar for those living at home and those in nursing care.
