Which one of these GI fistulas will result in nutritional n electrolytic deficiency n y?
1)Fistula in duodenum
2)Fistula in sigmoid






Yes duodenum because that is where the pancreatic secretions are released.....Less enzymes wld lead to less digestion and therefore malabsorption and bicarbonate rich pancreatic fluid loss is responsible for electolyte deficincy
