Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy with jejunal extension for a post-esophagectomy gastric conduit.

Clin J Gastroenterol 2020 Aug 24;13(4):501-505. Epub 2020 Jan 24.

Department of Gastroenterological Surgery, Toranomon Hospital, 2-2-2 Toranomon, Minato-ku, Tokyo, 105-8470, Japan.

Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is a minimally invasive procedure providing nutritional benefits to malnourished patients. Although a past history of celiotomy is not a contradiction for PEG construction, this procedure is rarely undertaken in post-esophagectomy patients, for two reasons: anatomically limited gastric spaces and high susceptibility to pulmonary aspiration. To overcome these limitations, we developed an original method of introducing PEG with jejunal extension for esophagectomized patients with retrosternal gastric pull-up reconstruction. Read More

The Effect of Enteral Tube Feeding on Patients' Health-Related Quality of Life: A Systematic Review.

Nutrients 2019 May 10;11(5). Epub 2019 May 10.

The School of Nursing, Soochow University, Suzhou 215006, China.

Patients with functional gastrointestinal tract who are unable to meet their nutritional requirements may benefit from the use of enteral nutrition via feeding tubes which could be nasogastric, percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy and jejunostomy. Although enteral tube feeding has been shown to promote nutritional status, improve wound healing, and enhance patients' quality of life (QoL), evidence of tube and feed complications and reduced QoL has also been reported. Despite the increasing prevalence of patients on enteral tube feeding, no systematic review examining the role of enteral tube feeding on patients' QoL appears to have been published. Read More
