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

Clin J Gastroenterol 2020 Jan 24. 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

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

Strangulated gastric prolapse through a gastrostomy site requiring emergent partial gastrectomy.

BMJ Case Rep 2017 Jun 22;2017. Epub 2017 Jun 22.

Department of Surgery, St Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor, Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA.

Strangulated gastric prolapse through a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy tract is a rare and potentially life-threatening complication that requires surgical intervention. We describe a case of a 74-year-old woman who was debilitated and ventilator-dependent and who presented with acute gastric prolapse with resultant ischaemic necrosis. The patient underwent an emergent exploratory laparotomy, partial gastrectomy, repair of gastrostomy defect and placement of a gastrojejunostomy feeding tube remote to the previous location.

The Role of Percutaneous Endoscopic Transgastric Jejunostomy in the Management of Enteral Tube Feeding.

Gastroenterology Res 2016 Jun 18;9(2-3):53-55. Epub 2016 Jun 18.

Department of Internal Medicine, Hiroshima Kyoritsu Hospital, 2-20-20 Nakasu Asaminami-ku, Hiroshima City, Japan. Email:

Feeding-related adverse events after percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) such as aspiration pneumonia can impede the use of PEG. Percutaneous endoscopic transgastric jejunostomy (PEG-J) using large-bore jejunal tubes with gastric decompression function may improve outcomes by circumventing gastric passage during enteral nutrition and improving drainage of excessive gastric secretions. This report describes a case where PEG-J was successful in maintaining enteral tube feeding in a 72-year-old man when PEG feeding was not tolerated. Read More

Percutaneous endoscopic transgastric jejunostomy (PEG-J): a retrospective analysis on its utility in maintaining enteral nutrition after unsuccessful gastric feeding.

BMJ Open Gastroenterol 2016 27;3(1):e000098. Epub 2016 Jun 27.

Department of Internal Medicine , Hiroshima Kyoritsu Hospital , Hiroshima , Japan.

Background/aims: Although percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is the method of choice for long-term enteral nutrition, feeding-related adverse events such as aspiration pneumonia and peristomal leakage can impede the use of PEG. Percutaneous endoscopic transgastric jejunostomy (PEG-J) using large-bore jejunal tubes may help by circumventing gastric passage during enteral nutrition and improving drainage of gastric secretions.

Methods: 20 patients (12 males and 8 females) who received PEG-J after unsuccessful PEG feeding during a 6-year period in our institution were analysed retrospectively to evaluate the efficacy of large-bore jejunal feeding tubes in maintaining enteral nutrition. Read More

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.
