[Percutaneous placement of feeding tubes for long-term nutrition and decompression. Indications, techniques and complications].
Fortschr Med Orig. 2001; 119(1):41-4.FM

Abstract

In the recent past, PEG/PEJ has found worldwide acceptance. The uncomplicated nature of the method has resulted in a considerable increase in endoscopic gastrostomies. Provided that the method is properly applied, and appropriate aftercare is offered, complications rarely occur. In principle, the indications are chronic diseases requiring tube feeding for longer than one month, such as cachexia in patients with cancer or stenotic tumors of the mouth and throat, or of the upper gastrointestinal tract.
