To the Editor.—I read with considerable interest the article entitled "A Reversed Jejunal Segment Interposition as Feeding Gastrostomy," by Lopez et al (Arch Surg 112:343-344, 1977). If the authors consulted the literature, specifically, Am J Surg 95:157-159, 1958, they would have found an article entitled "Jejunogastrostomy for Feeding," by Stanley S. Fieber, MD, which describes this approach at that time.
