To compare the efficacy of these two techniques, we prospectively randomized multiple trauma patients during their admission laparotomy to receive either central venous parenteral nutritional (TPN: n = 23) or enteral nutrition by jejunostomy (Jej: n = 23). Nutritional support began on the first postoperative day; the study… CONTINUE READING
