Tubes, Jejunostomy

Definition : Tubes designed for insertion through a surgical opening into the jejunum; the distal tip usually remains in the jejunum. These tubes typically consist of a soft, clear silicone tube with a small plastic attachment (e.g., a Dacron ring) next to the skin and secured by a bumper (e.g., wings) on the inside; they may be placed by open surgery or by using fluoroscopic-guided, laparoscopic, or percutaneous endoscopic procedures. Jejunostomy tubes are used mainly for feeding patients (usually children) who require medium- or long-term enteral feeding but who are unable to maintain sufficient oral intake (e.g., patients who have severe neurologic impairment; patients who have tumors of the mouth, larynx, or esophagus); some tubes are also used for decompression, administration of medications, and/or for drainage.
