[Therapy of Buried Bumper Syndrome via NOTES - A Case Report].Z Gastroenterol. 2013 Aug; 51(8):744-6.ZG
Mucosal overgrowth and migration of the inner bumper into or even through the gastric wall (= buried bumper syndrome) is a possible complication of percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG). In this case report we describe the successful endoscopic recovery of an intraabdominally migrated inner bumper as well as reestablishment of PEG using NOTES (Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery). This practical application of the NOTES technique via the preexisting transgastric approach (PEG) can therefore be a reasonable alternative to a surgical-laparoscopic therapy of the severe buried bumper.
