Complications of percutaneous endoscopic enterostomy tubes.
Surg Laparosc Endosc. 1992 Sep; 2(3):227-9.SL

Abstract

Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy and jejunostomy tubes have been used clinically for approximately 10 years. They have been used predominantly in patients who cannot sustain their weight by oral intake, such as individuals with abnormalities of swallowing or intestinal peristalsis. The percutaneous endoscopic method of placement confers some advantages over classical surgical placement, especially in poor risk cases. Although several types of tube are commercially available, a substantial complication rate is still directly attributable to the tubes. In some series, complications are reported in 70% of cases. This report describes two complications of endoscopically introduced jejunostomy tubes used in patients with Roux-en-Y reconstructions after previous multiple gastric surgical procedures.
