Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Akira Horiuchi, Showa Inan General Hospital
  Purpose
In patients with percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) delayed gastric emptying has been speculated as a cause of aspiration pneumonia. Elemental diet may facilitate gastric emptying in PEG patients as compared with regular liquid enteral nutrients, resulting in the prevention of aspiration pneumonia.

Condition Intervention
Postprocedural Delayed Gastric Emptying Other: Elental

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Single (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: The Comparative Study of Elemental Diet and Regular Liquid Diet on Gastric Emptying in Patients With Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy

Further study details as provided by Akira Horiuchi, Showa Inan General Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Measurement of gastric emptying [ Time Frame: Four hours (from 7:30 am to 11:30 am) ]
    Two kinds of liquid test meals (Elemenal diet or regular liquid nutrient ) (200kcal/200ml) labeled with 100 mg(13C sodium acetate) are administered for 15 min and after that 13C breath test performed during the 4 hours


Estimated Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: November 2011
Study Completion Date: April 2012
Primary Completion Date: April 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Elemental diet Other: Elental
200Kcal/200mL of liquid nutrient for 15 min at 7:30 am is administered in PEG patients
Placebo Comparator: Liquid nutrient Other: Elental
200Kcal/200mL of liquid nutrient for 15 min at 7:30 am is administered in PEG patients
