Knotting of a nasogastric feeding tube in a child with head injury: A case report and review of literature.”
In this publication Aliu, alongside seven other physicians, discuss the complications that can arise from the placement of a nasogastric tube, a common procedure for patients that are unable to feed themselves. In previous case studies regarding nasogastric tubes, complications such a coiling and knotting are blamed on small bore tubes and are said to be more common in patients with small stomachs. However, Aliu and her colleagues challenge the position that small stomachs are at a greater risk for tube knotting, based on the extreme rarity of related complications in children. Instead, they argue that factors such as excess tube length, gastric surgery, and reduced gastric tone, specifically due to head injury, are the most reasonable predispositions for nasogastric tube knotting.
Using the head as a mould for cranioplasty with methylmethacrylate.”
