AbstractExtract: Dear Dr Lewis, Andersen, and Thomas: It was with great interest that we read your most recent systematic review and meta-analysis addressing the important issue of early versus later commencement of enteral feeding in gastrointestinal surgery patients.¹ While your 2006 Cochrane review² has clear merit in that it expands on the number of studies and thus the power of your earlier analysis,³ we feel that the present study is essentially a duplication of your Cochrane effort, although with slightly different conclusions. ¹ ² ³ See notes in article.
