BACKGROUND Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tubes have largely replaced nasogastric tubes (NGTs) for nutritional support of patients with head and neck cancer undergoing curative (chemo) radiotherapy without any good scientific basis. METHODS A prospective study was conducted to compare PEG tubes and NGTs in terms of nutritional outcomes, complications, patient satisfaction, and cost. RESULTS There were 32 PEG and 73 NGT patients. PEG patients sustained significantly less weight… CONTINUE READING
