Objective: To evaluate the clinical efficiency of polymethylsiloxane polyhydrate (Enterosgel®) in the complex treatment of diarrhea syndrome in children.

Patients and Methods: We carried out a retrospective analysis of the clinical results of 64 patients with gastroenterocolitis of non-infectious etiology (mean age 6.4 ± 0.7 years), i.e. a complete study of patients with complex treatment by Enterosgel®. The comparison group with no treatment by Enterosgel® consisted of 31 children (mean age 6.5 ± 0.9 years) with diarrhea syndrome. We conducted a comparative assessment of intoxication symptoms, the nature of the stool, clinical blood tests, and the length of hospital stay.

Results: Normalization of the stool in patients whose complex treatment included Enterosgel® was faster, the length of hospital stay decreased by almost 2 times, and there were no negative changes in blood tests.

Conclusion: The complex treatment of children with the pathology of the digestive system accompanied by diarrhea syndrome is efficient with the enterosorbent effect of Enterosgel®.
