AbstractInserting a nasogastric tube during various abdominal procedures is a common manoeuvre to decompress the upper gastrointestinal tract. Improper placement and taping of the nasogastric tube results in excessive pulling on the nasal ala and subsequent pressure necrosis, This complication not only carries serious cosmetic morbidity, it is also preventable if a proper taping technique is employed.
