Advances in enteral nutrition techniques.
Am J Gastroenterol. 1992 Nov; 87(11):1547-53.AJ

Abstract

The increasing use of enteral nutrition in hospitals has led to an expanded role for the gastroenterologist and surgeon in providing enteral access. New concepts in immunonutrition and gut support in critically ill patients have popularized early postoperative feeding. There is an ongoing need to update physicians on the diverse enteral access techniques now available. In addition to standard percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) and percutaneous endoscopic jejunostomy (PEJ) techniques, this review focuses on reflux prevention through double-lumen feeding-suction tubes, and describes the use of steerable catheters for rapid insertion of nasojejunal and PEJ tubes without endoscopy. Low-profile "button"-type devices, one-step button placement, replacement gastrostomy devices, and special enteral techniques for patients with cancer are also reviewed.
