Enteric alimentation: a radiologic approach.
A new guide wire-directed enteric feeding tube is described. Clinical trials have shown the tube can be rapidly placed in the small bowel in patients with altered gastric anatomy or decreased peristalsis. Fluoroscopically guided feeding tube placement has proved to be a valuable adjunct in the therapy of patients requiring long-term enteric alimentation.
