The overall objective of this research study is to determine the effect of a pre-operatively placed nasogastric tube compared to no nasogastric tube, on post-operative emesis rates and postoperative length of stay in infants with a primary diagnosis of pyloric stenosis treated with pyloromyotomy. This study will also examine the feasibility data of the pilot data to develop estimates of treatment effect of a pre-operative nasogastric tube on post-operative rate of emesis and length of stay to be used to determine the sample size of the definitive trial.

The purpose of the study is to compare two ways (nasogastric tube (NGT) and nasoduodenal tube (NDT)) to provide nutrition to infants admitted to the hospital for viral bronchiolitis and wh...
Pyloric stenosis is a condition that develops in infants and that leads to an obstruction of the channel going out of the stomach. This study is being performed to determine if there is a...
The purpose of this study is to determine if there is an increase in the frequency of formula change in patients with pyloric sctenosis prior to being correctly diagnosed.
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...
This clinical pilot trial is being conducted to learn more about the infant's feeding behavior while being fed by indwelling nasogastric tube placement or by intermittent oral tube placeme...
Nasogastric tubes have been used in the pediatric age group to supplement nutrition in cases of malignancy and failure to thrive due to a variety of causes. Breathing difficulty may occur after the in...
Nasogastric (NG) tube insertion is a common procedure in the clinical setting that causes much discomfort and pain for the patient. Pain control is often suboptimal, as many NG tube insertions are per...
An elderly female patient was admitted to intensive care for prolonged vasopressor therapy and mechanical ventilation after cardiac arrest and acute percutaneous coronary intervention. Antiplatelet, t...
Concerning gastric cancer (GC), nasogastric tube (NGT) is routinely employed for peri-operative decompression and palliative enteral nutrition. Additionally, we believe to have found a further applica...
Pyloromyotomy is the tried and tested surgical procedure for successful operative treatment of pyloric stenosis. Over time, the operative approach has evolved to take advantage of cosmetically superio...
Narrowing of the pyloric canal with varied etiology. A common form is due to muscle hypertrophy (PYLORIC STENOSIS, HYPERTROPHIC) seen in infants.
Narrowing of the pyloric canal due to HYPERTROPHY of the surrounding circular muscle. It is usually seen in infants or young children.
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.
A pathological constriction that can occur above (supravalvular stenosis), below (subvalvular stenosis), or at the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
The region between the sharp indentation at the lower third of the STOMACH (incisura angularis) and the junction of the PYLORUS with the DUODENUM. Pyloric antral glands contain mucus-secreting cells and gastrin-secreting endocrine cells (G CELLS).
