A minimally invasive approach with a 3d imaging system for the treatment of esophageal perforation due to Boerhaave syndrome.

Ann Ital Chir 2018 Dec 19;7. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

Boerhaave's syndrome is a rare life-threatening condition that requires urgent surgical management. There are various methods of managing it, with the main principles of limiting sepsis, draining the area and maintaining nutrition. Although the gold standard is open thoracotomy and/or laparotomy, mostly in patients with sepsis, we present a case of a 53-year-old man treated with a combination of laparoscopic suture (3D imaging system) of the oesophageal perforation site, decompressive percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy and feeding jejunostomy.

Enteral nutrition (EN) is the introduction of nutrients into the gastrointestinal tract through a tube placed in a natural or artificial stoma. Tubes may be passed into the stomach (gastrostomy) or the jejunum (jejunostomy) in patients who cannot obtain adequate nourishing via oral feeding. Following placement, nurses are typically responsible for management of gastrostomy or other enteral tube devices in both the acute and home care settings. Read More

Direct percutaneous endoscopic jejunostomy - Should we move on to single- and double-balloon enteroscopy techniques?

Rev Esp Enferm Dig 2017 10;109(10):677-678

Gastroenterology, HELIOS Bördeklinik , Germany.

Direct percutaneous endoscopic jejunostomy (DPEJ) is a useful technique to access the jejunum in order to: a) provide enteral nutrition to individuals when the gastric route is absent or contraindicated; and b) to decompress the jejunum in patients with malignant small bowel obstruction. Traditionally, DPEJ is performed using a colonoscope or enteroscope, which is advanced as deep as possible into the jejunum. The insertion technique of the feeding tube is identical to the one used for a gastrostomy tube (Ponsky-Gauderer method). Read More

Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Internal Medicine, Pusan National University Hospital, Pusan National University School of Medicine, Busan , Korea.

The prevalence of hospital malnutrition is still high in patients with digestive diseases, especially for those suffering from cancer and bowel diseases which cause malabsorption. It is well known that malnutrition is associated with delayed wound healing, impaired immunity, infection, increased complication, and poor convalenscence. Recently, nutrition screening and assessment by nutrition support team has become essential for nutrition management, and gastroenterologists comprise a dominant member of the nutrition support team.

Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy with jejunal extension plus percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG-j plus PEG) in patients with gastric/duodenal cancer outlet obstruction.

Arq Gastroenterol 2015 Jan-Mar;52(1):72-5

Hospital Garcia de Orta, Serviço de Gastrenterologia, GENE - Grupo de Estudo de Nutrição Entérica, Pragal, Almada, Portugal.

Background: Stent palliation is the gold standard for gastric/duodenal cancer outlet obstruction. When stenting is impossible, feeding may be achieved through a gastrojejunostomy (PEG-J), but displacement of jejunal tube is frequent due to manipulation for feeding and drainage. Gastric outlet obstruction results on increased gastroesophageal reflux or extra-tube leakage. Read More

Enteral tube feeding is usually a relatively straightforward method of nutritional support, and should be facilitated by a multiprofessional team. For short-term use (<4 weeks) a fine bore feeding nasogastric tube is indicated but if longer term feeding is required then a gastrostomy is appropriate, usually inserted endoscopically (a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy tube). The most common serious complication of a nasogastric tube is not identifying a misplaced tube within the lungs: there are clear recommendations from the National Patient Safety Agency as to how to check tube placement.

Direct percutaneous endoscopic jejunostomy in pediatric age with a pexies triangulation system: report of a case and literature review.

Rev Esp Enferm Dig 2015 Apr;107(4):240-2

Direct percutaneous endoscopic jejunostomy (DPEJ) is an infrequent procedure as it is not always easy to obtain transillumination, being this the main reason for failure of this technique. In patients with previous surgery, this procedure is more complex and there are only 6 reported cases in pediatric population. In our case, we provide the use of an endoscopic triangulation system with "T" pexies not used before in these cases. Read More

Design and experimental evaluation of an anti-leak feeding tube.

J Surg Res 2015 May 22;195(1):10-5. Epub 2015 Jan 22.

Department of Surgery, University of Florida College of Medicine, Gainesville, Florida.

Background: Enteral feeding via gastrostomy or jejunostomy tube is often required to adequately treat patients with cancer, gastrointestinal disorders, and cerebral vascular accident. Although sufficient to provide adequate caloric intake, the present design of a gastrostomy tube is inadequate. Leakage of gastric contents onto the skin is commonplace prompting emergency department visits and skin damage that requires costly nonoperative and operative intervention. Read More

Laparoscopic-assisted percutaneous endoscopic transgastrostomy jejunostomy.

JSLS 2014 Oct-Dec;18(4)

"Grigore T. Popa" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Iasi, Department of Surgery, Regional Institute of Oncology Iasi, Second Department of Oncologic Surgery, Iasi, Romania.

Background And Objectives: New therapeutic protocols for patients with end-stage Parkinson disease include a carbidopa/levodopa combination using continuous, modulated enteral administration via a portable pump. The typical approach involves a percutaneous endoscopic transgastrostomy jejunostomy (PEG-J), which requires a combination of procedures designed to ensure that no organ is interposed between the abdominal wall and the gastric surface. Lack of transillumination in maximal endoscopic light settings is a major contraindication for PEG-J, and we decided to use a different approach to establish enteric access for long-term medication delivery via pump, using a minimally invasive procedure.

Division of Gastroenterology, Center for Endoscopic Research and Therapeutics (CERT), University of Chicago Medical Center, 5700 Sought Maryland Ave, Chicago, IL 60637-1470, USA. Electronic address:

Placement of percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy or jejunostomy is a safe procedure with low periprocedural mortality, but overall mortality rates are high because of underlying disease conditions. These procedures are also associated with postprocedure complications. The clinically significant adverse events related to the procedures include infection (at tube site and peritonitis), bleeding, and aspiration. Read More

[The use of percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy for provision of the long-term enteral nutrition].

Voen Med Zh 2014 Apr;335(4):46-9

Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy for provision of the long-term enteral nutrition is well established in clinical practice because unlike from traditional gastrostomy and jejunostomy allowed to avoid many complications. The technique is used for enteral tube feeding in the absence of real positive predictive recovery of consciousness and swallowing function. During presented study from 387 patients with a gastrostomy imposed by percutaneous endoscopic technique, observed only 1,8% of suppurative complications and in 1% of cases - uncontrolled removal of the tube by the patient.
