Tumour seeding following percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy placement in head and neck cancer.
Postgrad Med J. 1997 Jul; 73(861):430-2.PM

Abstract

We report the case of a patient with advanced squamous carcinoma of the supraglottic larynx and hypopharynx who developed metastatic gastric deposits occurring at the site of a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy tube, inserted 10 months previously by the pull technique. We review seven previous reports of tumour deposits occurring at the site of placement of a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy in patients with head and neck cancer, and consider alternative methods of enteral feeding in such patients.
