A Prospective, Randomized Trial of Early Enteral Feeding After Pylorus Preserving Pancreatoduodenectomy
Pancreaticoduodenectomy is associated with a high incidence of postoperative complications.
These postoperative complications could delay postoperative resumption of adequate oral
intake. The use of TPN significantly increases postoperative complications, especially those
associate with infections. However, method of Nutritional support (Enteral feeding or total
parenteral support)after pancreaticoduodenectomy is controversial.
1. To evaluate whether early enteral nutrition may be decreased the postoperative
2. To evaluate whether enteral feeding improve nutritional status after
3. To determine the optimal method for postoperative nutritional support
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment
To evaluate the impact of early postoperative enteral feeding
Postoperative 21 days
