Therefore, for longer term enteral tube feeding, feeding via a gastrostomy
tube is currently recommended.
Two types of fluoroscopy machines were used for gastrostomy
placement based on hospital site: an Allure Xper FD 20 (Philips Healthcare) at Hospital 1 and an AXIOM Artis (Siemens Healthcare) at Hospital 2.
and jejunal feeding tubes can be placed in these ways.
Use of a 24 Fr gastrostomy
tubes may show promising results if placed under radiological guidance with comparable technical success and complication rates to other caliber tubes.
John and enhance nutritional status of head and neck cancer patients with gastrostomy
tubes Planned publication of the research results will benefit the scientific and healthcare community at large.
Material and Methods: The demographic data, complications and follow-up findings of the patients who had undergone percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy
between March 2011 and March 2014 were examined retrospectively using medical files.
Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy
(PEG) feeding has been used as an alternative to enteral feeding in dysphagic stroke patients.
We also examined patients who had required postoperative gastrostomy
tube placement to determine if this had been performed because of aspiration or aspiration risk.
In none of the cases there was slipping of gastrostomy
Nasogastric and percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy
feeding in head and neck cancer patients receiving radiotherapy treatment at a regional oncology unit: a two year study.
The risk is greatest for those children who are least mobile (GMFCS IV and V), have low nutritional and calcium status, less exposure to sunlight, use anticonvulsants, are gastrostomy
feed and have lower fat mass (Fehlings et al.
Precise placement of T fasteners under anteroposterior and crosstable later alfluoroscopic guidance would transfix the anterior stomach wall and allow confident access into the stomach lumen, thus eliminating complications of gastrostomy
misplacement and slippage.
