The enterostomy feeding tubes further have different types for specific difficulties such as gastronomy tubes, jejunostomy
tubes, and gastrojejunostomy tubes.
After preoperative intensive care unit (ICU) evaluation and preparation, transhiatal esophagectomy (THE) and cervical esophagostomy were performed with pyloromyotomy and feeding jejunostomy
. The diagnosis of eosinophilic esophagitis was confirmed by histologic examination (Figures 6a and 6b).
That's why feeding jejunostomy
was done in all the cases at 2 to 3 weeks or later to maintain nutrition followed by Barium meal and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and at 6 weeks and decisions were taken accordingly.
Some patients with PIPO can tolerate enteral feeding with gastrostomy or jejunostomy

Upon exploration; jejunal diverticular perforation was observed 20 cm distal to the Treitz's ligament (Figure 4) and a jejunostomy
was performed at the level perforation.
Objective: To determine the benefit of feeding jejunostomy
in patients undergoing transhiatal esophagectomy in terms of complications.
Since symptoms persisted and her oral intake was insufficient, a jejunostomy
tube was placed on the 8th hospital day and enteral nutrition begun.
The patient was stabilized and returned to the operating room on postoperative day number two for reconstruction with a Rouxen-Y esophagojejunostomy, feeding jejunostomy
tube placement, and formal abdominal wall closure.
Our patient, after jejunostomy
creation and starting of enteral nutrition, was asymptomatic, and so, in April 2016, hormone therapy with fulvestrant was started (500 mg, day 0, 14, and 28 and every 28 days thereafter by intramuscular injection).
She had multiple comorbidities including renal failure, systemic lupus erythematosus, and protein S deficiency, a history of transient ischemic attack, deep vein thrombosis, and pulmonary embolism, and longstanding malnourishment requiring jejunostomy
Laparotomy was performed for washout, omental patch, and a feeding jejunostomy
