The use of elemental diets in radiation enteritis

Uses of elemental diets in clinical situations: 121-134
The use of elemental diets in radiation enteritis
Radiation enteritis is a progressive disease that is seen with increasing frequency with the utilization of supervoltage radiotherapy. Tissue damage and functional integrity follow a bimodal curve and usually return to normal within 2 weeks after cessation of therapy. Early effects include oedema, sloughing of the bowel wall and are often reversible. Chronic and irreversible effects include severe vasculitis and perivascular fibrosis.
