Roux-en-Y jejunostomy button in infants

Pediatr Surg Int. 2000;16(1-2):40-2. doi: 10.1007/s003830050010.


Establishing enteral feeding in high-risk infants with significant gastroesophageal reflux is a difficult challenge. Some patients are considered at very high risk for fundoplication and gastrostomy due to unstable medical conditions, dense upper-abdominal adhesions due to previous surgical procedures, or unfavorable anatomy. We describe a less invasive operation that provides jejunal feeding in a way that is safe, reliable, and convenient for the family.
