Abstract:   (3624 Views)

Weight loss resulting from the hypermetabolic response to burn injury is not unusual and is often unavoidable. The loss of retroperitoneal fat has been postulated as a major factor in the cause of the uncommon complication of superior mesenteric artery syndrome. This syndrome is frequently treated nonoperatively with aggressive nutrition support.

Nasojejunal feeding past the point of obstruction should be considered as the primary method of nutrition support. Alternatively, total parenteral nutrition or a combination of enteral and parenteral feeding may be necessary to meet nutritional needs until the duodenal obstruction resolves. This case study described the nutrition management of a burn patient who developed superior mesenteric artery syndrome.
