CONCLUSIONS: 1) Endoscopic placement of the nasoenteral tubes is a safe method of providing enteral nutrition in critically ill cardiothoracic surgery patients. 2) Benefits of nasoenteral tubes compared to nasogastric tubes remain unproven, and frequent repositioning of nasoenteral tubes is required. 3) A prospective comparison of nasoenteral and nasogastric tubes is warranted.
