• This report describes a new double gastroenterostomy tube. It has been used in patients where delayed oral feedings are anticipated, ie, a perforated duodenal ulcer, suture-plicated, with stenosis of the duodenum; a duodenal ulcer with outlet obstruction treated with vagotomy and gastroenterostomy; and patients with chronic lung disease undergoing gastric surgery and requiring postoperative respiratory assistance. Its use has proved to be beneficial, and it is cheap and allows early enteric feeding.
