Abstract:
Objective: To evaluate two types of enteral feeding, nasogastric and enterostomy tubes, to determine their relationships with outcomes.

Subjects: Persons with TBI who were enrolled in the TBIMS longitudinal study.

Design: Data were collected on the type and timing of tube placements in acute care and rehabilitation, as well as associated medical complications.
