Reports were included in English and Spanishindex (BMI) was calculated at the time of admission to the program and on different rehabilitation stages. Results: 21 reports were identified, in the classification of the publications, articles related to cost effectiveness analysis, cost minimization and systematic reviews on the subject predominated, while articles related to cost benefit and cost utility analysis represented the lowest proportion. Conclusions: Trends in economic analysis of enteral nutritional support technologies in hospitalized patients focus on cost-effectiveness analysis of nutritional support and cost-effectiveness of specialized nutritional formulas.
