Novel endoscopic triangulation approach to percutaneous transgastric placement of jejunal extension feeding tube.
South Med J. 2010 Dec; 103(12):1243-5.SM

Abstract

In patients who have surgically-altered upper gastrointestinal anatomy, postoperative endoscopic enteral nutrition options can be limited by issues such as bowel stenosis and/or acute angulation. This report details the use of an endoscopic triangulation method combining per-oral and percutaneous transgastric approaches to overcome an efferent gastrojejunostomy limb stenosis, to successfully place a jejunal extension feeding tube through a newly placed PEG site. This description provides an alternative endoscopically feasible option for successful enteral nutrition access, thus obviating the need for additional operations to place surgical feeding tubes or to commit patients to long-term total parenteral nutrition.
