The advantage of retrieval PEG tubes in patients with buried bumper syndrome - a case report.
Turk J Gastroenterol. 2012; 23(6):773-5.TJ

Abstract

The aging population has resulted in an increasing need for long-term enteral nutrition of patients with a wide range of disabling conditions. Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy is one of the applicable methods for long-term enteral nutrition support. The buried bumper syndrome is a rarely encountered but grave complication of percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy. Various internal and external methods have been described for the removal of the buried bumper. Removing the percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy tube by external traction without an abdominal incision can resolve this problem efficiently, especially in cases in whom retrieval-type percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy tubes have been used. We report a case of buried bumper syndrome as a late complication of percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy placement. We removed the buried bumper with external traction and placed a new percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy tube in a different site because of the peristomal infection.
