Abstract

Necrotising enterocolitis (NEC) is an gastro-intestinal emergency occurring almost solely in preterm, low birth weight infants. Mortality, morbidity and the complication rate are high. An increase in NEC at the Groote Schuur Hospital nursery in 2008 prompted a change of practice, resulting in a significant decrease in the condition.
