Abstract

In the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery, tubefeeding is frequently carried out for postoperative nutritional control, because disease occurs in and around the oral cavity. In this study, the nutritional effects and the safety of new enteral nutrient 'TERMEAL 2.0®' applied to postoperative nutrition was investigated and compared with conventional liquid diets. As the results, nutritional index was improved during the application period and severe side effects such as diarrhea were not observed. In addition, TERMEAL 2.0® can accelerate enteral hyperalimentation as compared with conventional liquid diets. The results suggested that TERMEAL 2.0® is useful in oral and maxillofacial surgery.
