Abstract

Duodenal alimentation over an extended period of time may be employed principally for two purposes: first, as a form of feeding, when, because of some functional, organic, anatomic, mental, postoperative or other reason, food cannot be taken by mouth or stomach; and, secondly, as a form of therapy in gastric diseases, especially gastric or duodenal ulceration. The present writing deals only with the second group of cases. Favorable results have been reported by Einhorn 1 and his followers with this apparently logical form of therapy. For those who employ this method, it may prove of value to observe several precautions, which became apparent to me in the course of experiments with the concomitant use of two duodenal tubes, one in the stomach and one in the duodenum. By duodenal alimentation, an attempt is made to put the stomach at rest from its motor activity as well as from its secretory
