Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

Post-pyloric feeding via a surgical jejunostomy allows for enteral nutrition in patients that cannot receive oral or gastric feeding. Regardless of the technique used to create a jejunostomy, complications such as tube dislodgement, jejunostomy closure, or bowel obstruction can occur.

SURGICAL TECHNIQUE:

We present a simple and efficient jejunostomy technique that does not require a sewn anastomosis and employs an easily exchangeable feeding button.
