Chylothorax is a treacherous complication after esophagectomy associated with significant morbidity. Early enteral nutrition after surgery is important for recovery, but increases the pressure in the lymphatic system due to the absorption of triglycerides. To lower the incidence of chylothorax after esophagectomy, the use of low fat-containing tube feeding was evaluated as a standard of care following esophagectomy.

Use of enhanced recovery after surgery(ERAS) protocol in the patients after esophagectomy is reported to be feasible and safe in recent studies. And in Prof. Yin Li's research, patients after minimall...
Even though no evidence suggests tube feeding is beneficial for individuals with advanced dementia, many are still tube fed.
The aim of the current study was to investigate the impact of early oral feeding (EOF) on inflammatory cytokine levels after McKeown minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE) for cancer.
Postoperative complications, especially pulmonary complications, affect more than half the patients who undergo open esophagectomy for esophageal cancer. Whether hybrid minimally invasive esophagectom...
To explore the impact of the gastric tube diameter on quality of life of esophagus cancer patients after Ivor-Lewis esophagectomy.
This study plans to learn more about the safety of early feeding following placement of a feeding tube. Doctors in other specialties feed patients 4 hours after patients receive a feeding ...
The aim of this study is to test the clinical effectiveness of IOE tube using individually customized 3-dimentional printed guiding tube as an alternative to Levin tube feeding when uncons...
Our main hypothesis is that self-propelled Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrojejunostomy tube (PEG-J) that has a balloon on it's tip is associated with lower J-tube retrograde migration rate, ...
In this study, we want to see how feeding affects breathing in small premature babies. Using a special feeding tube in the stomach, we can measure how the diaphragm (a large breathing musc...
The study team will determine whether a decreased feeding tube dwell time will reduce feeding tube contamination
Nutritional support given via the alimentary canal or any route connected to the gastrointestinal system (i.e., the enteral route). This includes oral feeding, sip feeding, and tube feeding using nasogastric, gastrostomy, and jejunostomy tubes.
Use of nursing bottles for feeding. Applies to humans and animals.
Excision of part (partial) or all (total) of the esophagus. (Dorland, 28th ed)
A tube of ectodermal tissue in an embryo that will give rise to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, including the SPINAL CORD and the BRAIN. Lumen within the neural tube is called neural canal which gives rise to the central canal of the spinal cord and the ventricles of the brain. For malformation of the neural tube, see NEURAL TUBE DEFECTS.
