Catheters, Nasogastric, Enteroclysis

Definition : Nasogastric catheters used for the injection of liquids (e.g., drugs) into the small bowel. These catheters typically consist of a 13 Fr diameter tube with several side holes and a closed, rounded distal end, with or without a balloon; they are long enough to advance and locate their distal tip into the duodenum. Enteroclysis nasogastric catheters are mostly used to introduce barium directly into the small bowel for radiographic examinations; they may be also used for the introduction of medicines or nutrients.
