Advantages of pancreatico gastrostomy
over pancreaticojejunostomy are as follows:
KEY WORDS: Critically ill patients, Nutritional support, percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy
Percutaneous radiologic gastrostomy
tube (G-tube) placement is used for enteral nutrition in the setting of metastatic cancer, major trauma, and decline in neurologic status from dementia or stroke and, less commonly, for gastric decompression in patients with more distal chronic or uncorrectable bowel obstruction (1-4).
The enteral feeding devices market segmentation is based on product types (enteral feeding tubes, nasoenteric tubes, oroenteric tubes, enterostomy tubes, gastrostomy
tubes, percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy
(peg), laparoscopic gastrostomy
, open surgical gastrostomy
, jejunostomy tubes, low profile gastrostomy
tubes, enteral feeding pumps, administration reservoir, giving sets, enteral syringes), and application stages (pediatrics, adult).
The same process was followed for feeding tubes (naso-gastric tube, gastro jejunostomy tube, gastrostomy
tube, jejunostomy tube, duodenal tube, enteral tube, duodenal tube, and percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy
Comparison of wide caliber gastrostomy
tubes (18-24 Fr) was done with narrow caliber tubes (14 Fr) considering procedure success rate, procedure related complications and catheter related minor and major complications.
Inspiration for this quality improvement initiative began with radiology nurses noting that their patients did not have enough knowledge and understanding about the care of their gastrostomy
tube (G-tube) and managing weight loss.
Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the demographic data and complication rates in children who had undergone percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy
in a three-year period in our Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and to interrogate parental satisfaction.
Background: Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy
(PEG) feeding is widely used in stroke patients suffering from persistent dysphagia; however, predicting the risks and benefits of PEG insertion in the individual patient is difficult.
Aspiration was positively correlated with age younger than 18 months, the performance of a revision procedure, the presence of an underlying neuromuscular disorder (n = 20), and the need for a postoperative gastrostomy
tube (p < 0.
Two of them were in whom previously we used Malecot's catheter but it slipped and through gastrostomy
wound we introduced ET tube.
Demographic characteristics and percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy
The following data were collected for 9 years and then analysed: gender, CP type, GMFCS level, gastrostomy
, height, weight, use of a standing frame, antiepileptic drug therapy and fractures.
and percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy
(PEG) are established modalities for nutritional support.
We have performed gastrostomy
, which means we have created an artificial external opening into the stomach for nutritional support," he said.
