Abstract

Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy had become a general technique for placement of indwelling feeding and decompressive tubes. There have been few reports that double percutaneous endoscopic gastrojejunostomy (PEGJ) tubes for decompression and refeeding together with enteral nutrients. We herein present 3 cases, characterized by chronic malnutrition and requiring long-term digestive decompression and enteral nutritional support, which were placed in double PEGJ tubes under endoscopic or fluoroscopic guidance. The procedures were successfully completed for all the patients. Two patients resumed oral intake and PEGJ tubes were removed. The second patient was provided home enteral nutrition while waiting for surgery. Three unusual cases were successfully treated by double PEGJ tubes for digestive decompression and refeeding together with enteral nutrients.
