• In a review of 90 infants with pyloric stenosis who underwent pyloromyotomy, preoperative nasogastric drainage for more than six hours during the period of fluid resuscitation accompanied by a period of postoperative drainage for more than 12 hours resulted in better acceptance of a graduated feeding protocol with fewer emeses, earlier completion of full feeding, and shortened hospital stay.
