Total parenteral nutrition may be considered for a carefully selected group of palliative patients with ileus. Predictive factors include a strong desire to live, low burden of disease other than the ileus and expected increase in quality of life as a result of starting with total parenteral nutrition. Therapy compliance is required and a strong social network is desirable. Close collaboration between hospital and general practitioners and frequent reviews of the palliative care plan are also required for success.
