Enteral feeding, mainly by using a nasogastric tube (NGT), is generally favored over parenteral supplementation in head and neck cancer (HNC) patients with dysphagia. However, the placement of a NGT, either blindly or by endoscopy, is technically challenging in these patients due to the obstructive mass and the altered regional anatomy. The aim of this retrospective study was to estimate the clinical feasibility and safety of fluoroscopic-guided NGT placement in patients with advanced HNC.
