Abstract

Enteral nutrition is best delivered via a small bore feeding tube whose tip lies in the proximal jejunum. A major obstacle to tube placement is the lack of a reliable means of assuring passage through the pylorus. A simple, quick method of tube placement using endoscopic assistance that was successful in 18 of 20 (90%) attempts is described.
