Enteral Nutrition Without the Use of An Endoscope in Patients with Severe Acute Pancreatitis

Title variants
Languages of publication
One of the main elements of acute pancreatitis therapy is nutritional treatment, which should ensure the implementation of the patients' energetic needs, limit the exocrine activity of the pancreas, and maintain the gastrointestinal passage. The most important argument in favor of the above-mentioned is the fact that enteral nutrition in case of severe acute pancreatitis prevents infectious complications. The most effective method is enteral nutrition. The unavailability of bedside endoscopy, and thus the need to transport the patient in order to obtain access, considerably complicates the procedure. Literature data described various bedside techniques consisting in the blind introduction of the feeding tube, which are rarely used, despite the fact that they are cheaper and as effective as endoscopy.
