Sammanfattning

Dysphagia is common in head and neck cancer. A percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube is used to facilitate nutrition; however, some retrospective studies have indicated that the PEG tube causes dysphagia.A randomized study of patients with head and neck cancer was conducted with up to 10 years of follow-up. Patients were randomized to either the prophylactic PEG tube group (study group) or the common clinical nutritional support group (control group). At each follow-up, a dietician assessed the oral intake, noted the patients' weight, and if the patients used a PEG tube. Dysphagia was also assessed by the quality of life questionnaire, European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire-Core 30 Head and Neck 35-questions (EORTC-QLQ-H&N35).One hundred thirty-four patients were included in this study. There was no significant difference in swallowing function between the groups after 12 months, 24 months, and 8 years based on the EORTC-QLQ-H&N35, the oral intake scale, tube dependence, esophageal intervention, weight, body mass index (BMI), and overall survival.A prophylactic PEG tube can be used without an increased risk of long-term dysphagia in patients with head and neck cancer. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
