For every need we find the right solution
Nutrition can sometimes be difficult for a variety of reasons, e.g. in case of neurological swallowing disorders or passage disorders in oncological patients. Also, children or adults with disabilities may not be able to get sufficient food intake.
Such underlying conditions can give rise to the early assumption that enteral nutrition will be necessary for these patients over a longer period. If the nutritional support is foreseen to exceed 4 weeks, placement of a percutaneous feeding tube should be considered.
