Abstract
Traditionally, total parenteral nutrition(TPN) has been used when patients with hypaemesis gravidarum failed to respond to conservative management, but now many physicians attempt to enteral feeding via nasogastric tube because TPN is expensive and has many complications. Recently, we experienced 2 cases of hyperemesis gravidarum successfully managed by enteral feeding via nasogastric tube, therefore we think that this method may be carefully considered to the patients with hyperemesis gravidarum failed to respond to conservative management. So we report them with brief review of the literatures.
Key Words: Hyperemesis gravidarum, Enteral feeding
