Abstract

The aim of the present study was to investigate the safety and efficacy of long intestinal tube placement under fluoroscopic guidance for the treatment of malignant bowel obstruction (MBO). The cases of 74 patients with MBO who underwent long intestinal tube placement under fluoroscopic guidance during the period between June 2015 and October 2017 were reviewed. The clinical characteristics were retrospectively analysed with respect to efficacy, safety and outcome. Long intestinal tube placement was successfully completed in all 74 patients. The mean time required for tube placement was 31.09±16.25 min and the mean insertion depth of the tube was 153±39 cm. In 58 cases, the symptoms of abdominal pain, abdominal bloating and vomiting were greatly improved following 1‑3 days of tube decompression. The symptoms of the remaining 16 patients were not effectively relieved following decompression. No serious complications were observed in any patients. Overall, for patients with severe MBO, long intestinal tube placement under fluoroscopic guidance appears to be an effective and safe treatment, and it may improve quality of life.
