FERNANDEZ LOPEZ, María Teresa  e  RODRIGUEZ VAZQUEZ, Ana. Surgical jejunostomy as digestive tube access in the long-term. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2013, vol.28, n.4, pp.1341-1344. ISSN 1699-5198.

Home enteral nutrition (HEN) is the choice for patients who can not mantain oral intake but have a functioning gastrointestinal tract when it isn't justify keeping the patient in the hospital. The results of the HEN registry of the NADYA group in 2010 shows information related to the enteral acces route: 51% of the cases used nasogastric tubes, 27% gastrostomies, 10% oral route and 3% jejunostomies. Placement of a needle catheter jejunostomy is recommended for candidates for enteral nutrition undergoing major abdominal surgery, but publications about long-term use of this acces are scarce. We report same cases of patients whom the selected enteral acces was surgical jejunostomy. They represents the 1,14% of our patients with HEN at this moment, with a mean dwelling time of 210 ± 222 days. There has been frequent complications, but they were sligh.
