A preliminary study has been carried out on 10 patients suffering from cancer of the colon and rectum, all subjected to radical surgery. The clinical effectiveness of two alternative techniques of postoperative artificial nutrition, EPEN and TPN, are compared. The results confirm that enteral nutrition is technically applicable and well tolerated in the immediate post-operative period in these patients; it also presents a lower cost, it is more manageable and present a lower incidence of complications compared to TPN while offering similar metabolic and nutritional results.
