Abstract

Seventy five patients were fed by fine needle catheter jejunostomy shortly after major operations on the upper digestive tract. In all these cases, an elemental diet was dispensed through a volumentric infusion pump as from the second day post-operatively. There were no complications in relation to the positioning, permanence or removal of the catheter. Eleven patients suffered side effects - diarrhea (8 cases), hyperperistalsis (2 cases), and one case of abdominal distension and nausea. This early enteral feeding enabled us to achieve early suspension of parenteral feeding and a reduction of parenteral support, thereby reducing complications; to obtain an early positive nitrogen balance and decrease the loss in weight during the period of hospitalization.
