Effect of an early percutaneous gastrostomy on nutritional state, quality of life, anxiety and depression in patients with malignomas in the region of the larynx and pharynx

This study investigated the quality of life (LQI), body weight (BMI), physical activity (Duke activity index, DAI) and mental condition (Hospital Anxiety and Depression Score, HADS) of 61 patients with malignant tumours in the larynx/pharynx region, treated by radiotherapy. One group (n=27) was given a percutaneous gastrostomy (PEG) before the beginning of radiotherapy, and fed through it straight away. The second group (n=34) was fed conventionally, using a nasogastric tube if necessary.
