Post-stroke dysphagia is a frequent complication. Although most patients with dysphagia recover after the acute phase, some patients require long-term enteral feeding, either through a nasogastric (NG) or gastrostomy tube; the effectiveness of using either tube is still under debate. This study elucidated the natural course of NG tube installation and removal and examined the predictors and associating factors based on clinical and brain imaging data.

Semi-solid nutrients have several advantages, including reduced cases of diarrhea and aspiration pneumonia, and are usually administered via percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy owing to its high visco...
Enteral feeding, mainly by using a nasogastric tube (NGT), is generally favored over parenteral supplementation in head and neck cancer (HNC) patients with dysphagia. However, the placement of a NGT, ...
Nasogastric tubes (NGT) are often placed after surgery for cricopharyngeal muscle pathology due to risk of infection and mediastinitis. The aim of this study was to examine if this practice is necessa...
Currently the nasogastric tube (NGT) is routinely inserted in clinical after abdominal surgery for decompression in China, yet the practice varies between regions, the role of NGT for the patients aft...
Nasogastric (NG) tubes are used in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for various indications. However, evidence of the best practice for estimating the NG tube insertion length in extremely low ...
The primary objective is to assess the need of clamping nasogastric tubes (NG) before removal. Outcomes of patients admitted requiring nasogastric tube decompression will be compared. Pati...

The use of nasogastric (NG) decompression after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) is a current practice. NG tube is associated with a high rate of morbidity including pulmonary morbidity, delay...
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.
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.
The part of CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM that is contained within the skull (CRANIUM). Arising from the NEURAL TUBE, the embryonic brain is comprised of three major parts including PROSENCEPHALON (the forebrain); MESENCEPHALON (the midbrain); and RHOMBENCEPHALON (the hindbrain). The developed brain consists of CEREBRUM; CEREBELLUM; and other structures in the BRAIN STEM.
Congenital malformations of the central nervous system and adjacent structures related to defective neural tube closure during the first trimester of pregnancy generally occurring between days 18-29 of gestation. Ectodermal and mesodermal malformations (mainly involving the skull and vertebrae) may occur as a result of defects of neural tube closure. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, pp31-41)
