Efrat Gil, Maayan Agmon, Ayal Hirsch, Miriam Ziv, Anna Zisberg
Background: advanced dementia is an incurable illness, its last stage marked by inability to eat. Tube feeding was deemed a helpful solution at this stage, but in recent years its inefficiency has been proved, and it is no longer practiced in many countries around the world. In Israel, however, the procedure is still accepted. In the gastroenterology department at the Bnai Zion Medical Center, a serious interaction is ongoing with patients' legal guardians, where detailed information is given about the inefficiency of the tube procedure...

BACKGROUND: Pierre Robin sequence (PRS) is a triad of micrognathia, glossoptosis, and respiratory distress. There is no standard clinical classification used in the management of neonatal airway in patients with PRS. The goal of our study was to review the presentation and management of patients with PRS and formulate a clinical grading system and treatment algorithm. METHODS: A 10-year retrospective review of all neonates diagnosed with PRS was performed after obtaining institutional ethics approval...

BACKGROUND: The definitive dietary management of propionic acidaemia (PA) is unknown although natural protein restriction with adequate energy provision is of key importance. AIM: To describe European dietary practices in the management of patients with PA prior to the publication of the European PA guidelines. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional survey consisting of 27 questions about the dietary practices in PA patients circulated to European IMD dietitians and health professionals in 2014...

The school nurse plays a vital role in providing care and meeting the health needs of students in the school setting. Students attend school with chronic conditions and complex medical problems such as quadriplegia, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and muscular dystrophy. It is the responsibility of the school nurse to provide appropriate assessment, early intervention, and care for children in the school environment. The purpose of this article is to review and discuss the knowledge and skills the school nurse needs to care for students with central venous lines, gastrostomy tubes, altered urinary elimination, and tracheostomies...

BACKGROUND: The totally implantable venous access port plays a crucial role in delivering chemotherapy in the outpatient setting. Here, we report the first case of a patient with hypopharyngeal tumor who developed chest wall metastasis over the totally implantable venous access port inserted in the internal jugular vein.

The purpose of the article is to evaluate the effects of mechanical complications, such as clogging or coiling, of gastrojejunostomy tubes on radiation exposure during exchange in the pediatric population. In this HIPAA-compliant and IRB-approved study, we retrospectively reviewed procedural records for patients undergoing gastrojejunostomy (GJ) tube exchange during a 4-month period in 2014. Success of the procedure, specifications of the tube, age, and sex of the patient as well as radiation exposure during the procedure were included...

Importance: Children with special health care needs (CSHCN) have disproportionate health care utilization. Previous studies have demonstrated that a primary medical home improves health care outcomes for this population. Objective: To elucidate if enrollment in a multidisciplinary aerodigestive clinic improves outcomes and reduces health care costs by decreasing admissions and inpatient days. Design, Setting, and Participants: A retrospective medical record review of 113 patients with aerodigestive disorders enrolled in a pediatric multidisciplinary clinic from June 2009 to December 2013 was performed...

This study examined the safety of placing percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube in people with liver cirrhosis. The target population was further subdivided into people with ascites (case group) and people without ascites (control). We compare the morbidity and the mortality difference of PEG placement in cirrhotic patients with ascites vs cirrhotic patients without ascites. We then examined multiple factors including sex, race, chronic illness including hypertension, congestive heart failure, and others and their influence on the inpatient mortality of all cirrhotic patients who had PEG placement...

PURPOSE: The objective of this study was to evaluate postoperative feeding regimens after laparoscopic gastrostomy placement and their effect on outcomes. METHODS: Children 18 years of age or younger, who underwent laparoscopic gastrostomy placement at a tertiary-care academic children's hospital between January 2014 and October 2016, were reviewed. Data collected included patient characteristics, postoperative feeding regimen, and clinical outcomes. Statistical analysis was performed using Chi-square, Fisher's exact, and Wilcoxon Rank-Sum tests...

OBJECTIVES: This study aims to evaluate frequency, type, and cost of gastrostomy tube (GT) versus gastrojejunostomy tube (GJT) complications in children presenting to the emergency department (ED). METHODS: Patients were selected by electronic health record search for International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, and procedure codes for GTs and GJTs/jejunostomy tubes. All children aged less than 18 years with GTs or GJTs placed during a 5-year period (2007-2012) at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital were identified for retrospective review...

BACKGROUND: Leukodystrophies consist of degenerative neurogenetic diseases often associated with comorbidities that extend beyond the neurological system. Despite their impacts on patients' quality of life and risks of complications, head and neck symptomology is poorly reported in the literature. The objective of this study was to identify and quantify the main head and neck complaints among a cohort of patients diagnosed with leukodystrophies and define the role of the otolaryngologist as part of a multidisciplinary team for treating these patients...

A term baby was transferred to our tertiary care center with desaturations and inability to manage upper airway secretions. Rigid bronchoscopy and swallowing study revealed cricopharyngeal (CP) achalasia. A gastrostomy tube insertion and Botulinum Toxin-A injection were performed at 6 weeks of age. Improvement of symptoms was observed, however were short-lived requiring recurrent injections. Given the symptom severity, at 8 months, a successful endoscopic CP myotomy was performed. Patient was able to tolerate oral feeds as early as 2 months post-operatively...

BACKGROUND: Tube feeding dependence is a commonly observed debilitating side-effect of curative (chemo-) radiation in head and neck cancer patients that severely affects quality of life. Prevention of this side-effect can be obtained using advanced radiation techniques, such as IMRT. For radiotherapy treatment plan optimization, it has become increasingly important to develop prediction models that enable clinicians to predict the risk of tube feeding dependence for individual patients...

OBJECTIVES: To characterize specific serious toxicities of reRT with intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) for squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN) and identify treatment-related predictors of toxicity for patient counseling and decision-making. MATERIALS/METHODS: 75 consecutive patients with recurrent or 2nd primary SCCHN received reRT from 8/2004-02/2013. All patients had prior definitive or postoperative RT. Objective endpoints of "serious toxicity" were defined as: hospitalization during reRT, tracheotomy after reRT, hemorrhage, soft tissue complication requiring operative intervention, or other CTCAE grade ≥4 toxicity...

Direct percutaneous endoscopic jejunostomy (DPEJ) is a useful technique to access the jejunum in order to: a) provide enteral nutrition to individuals when the gastric route is absent or contraindicated; and b) to decompress the jejunum in patients with malignant small bowel obstruction. Traditionally, DPEJ is performed using a colonoscope or enteroscope, which is advanced as deep as possible into the jejunum. The insertion technique of the feeding tube is identical to the one used for a gastrostomy tube (Ponsky-Gauderer method)...
