Abstract

Data on the prevalence of malnutrition in paediatric patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) are limited. The present study aimed to establish the risk of (i) under-nutrition by using the Screening Tool for Assessment of Malnutrition in Paediatrics: STAMP (score ≥2) and (ii) over-nutrition by body mass index (BMI) centile (≥91st: overweight; ≥98th: obese).
