Effectiveness of wheat bran in preventing constipation of hospitalized orthopaedic surgery patients.
Orthop Nurs. 1990 Nov-Dec; 9(6):55-9.ON

Abstract

Orthopaedic patients hospitalized for surgery or confined to bed are at high risk for constipation. To determine if wheat bran ingestion would result in more stools, less laxative use, and a lower incidence of constipation after orthopaedic surgery, 16 orthopaedic patients were randomly assigned to experimental and control groups for 7 days. The study concluded that those experimental subjects who ate more wheat bran did have more bowel movements and requested fewer laxatives.
