Objective: To investigate clinical effects of neonatal necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). Methods: 32 NEC neonates were selected, and received the different treatment methods. Then, the cure rates were compared. Results: Among the 32 patients, 19 cases underwent the surgical treatments, including 1 case of peritoneal irrigation and drainage, 12 cases of necrotic intestinal tube resection, 3 cases of intestinal perforation repair, 3 cases of intestinal resection and anastomosis. Among the 19 cases, 18 cases were cured with a cure rate of 94.74%, and 1 cases died with a mortality rate of 5.26%. 13 patients were treated with medical treatment. During the treatment, all the 13 cases were absolutely fasted, and given the gastrointestinal decompression and parenteral nutrition support to maintain the stable electrolyte level and acid-base balance. The 13 patients were all cured with the cure rate of 100%. Conclusions: Both surgical and non-surgical treatments are important methods for the treatment of NEC. Clinically, the appropriate treatment protocol can be selected according to the actual situation of the child.
