Low fat tube feeding after esophagectomy is associated with a lower incidence of chylothorax.

Summary of "Low fat tube feeding after esophagectomy is associated with a lower incidence of chylothorax."

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.

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.
