The role of endoscopy in enteral feeding

Nov 14, 2016, 20:27 PM
The purpose of this guideline is to provide an updated, practical strategy for the use of endoscopically placed enteral feeding tubes in patients who are unable to maintain sufficient oral intake. Enteral access is the foundation of nutritional support. It is preferred over parenteral nutrition because of preservation of gut function, integrity and immune mechanisms, and lower risks and costs. Nasoenteric feeding tubes are commonly used for short-term nutritional support. There are a variety of approaches to nasoenteric feeding tube placement, including blind passage, fluoroscopically assisted, endoscopic, ultrasound assisted, and magnet assisted.3 Intragastric feedings may be more physiologic, but small-bowel feedings are more reliable in critically ill patients, especially in those with ileus and gastric feeding intolerance. However, current data are insufficient to show a significant decrease in aspiration or pneumonia with small-bowel feeds. 4,5 PEG, jejunal extension through a PEG (PEGJ), or direct percutaneous endoscopic jejunostomy (DPEJ) is appropriate for persons who require long-term nutritional support. PEG was introduced in 1980 as an alternative to laparotomy for surgical placement of feeding tubes, although radiologic approaches are also commonly in use.6-9 PEG is typically performed with the patient moderately sedated, has low morbidity, and is successful in more than 95% of patients. 10,11
