Yes, you can for the hydration benefits. However, the proximal outlet must originate in the small bowel, so chyme is the right viscosity to reinfuse. It is best if the distal colonic outlet originates from the ascending colon to maximise the hydration benefits and reduce the incidence of loose stool being passed rectally. Please refer to the The Insides® System Instructions for Use on tube insertion.
