Transpyloric feeding in 49 infants undergoing intensive care.
  1. E Dryburgh

    Abstract

    The use of transpyloric feeding in 46 very ill newborn infants requiring assisted ventilation was evaluated. It was found to be a simple and well-tolerated technique. A possible complication of significance was necrotising enterocolitis in 4 infants. Transpyloric tube feeding in 3 infants with treated upper small-bowel atresia is also described.
