Study of Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy Outcomes

چکیده

Background and Objective: Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is the technique of choice for providing enteral access to patients who require long-term enteral nutrition. This study was performed to evaluate the outcomes and complications of PEG. Materials and Methods: In this semi-experimental study, 77 patients (45 men, 32 women; age mean: 58.9±19.7 years, Min: 14 years, Max: 89 Years) who underwent initial PEG placement in Vali-e-asr hospital, Zanjan-Iran, from 2014 to 2015 were included. The complications were assessed three weeks and three months after PEG insertion. The quality of life (QoL) was evaluated with Karnofsky questionnaire before PEG placement and three months after that. Results: The most common indications of PEG placement were cerebrovascular accidents (26.5%), cardio-pulmonary disease (20.6%), and drug and substance abuse toxicities (16.2%). Complications occurred in 26.5% (18 cases) of the patients. The frequencies of the complications at end of the third week and third month were 17.6% and 11.8%, respectively. The most common complication was tube leakage. Also, no significant difference was found between mean of QoL scores pre- and post- PEG placements (p> 0.05). Conclusion: Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy is a safe and minimally invasive endoscopic procedure associated with a low morbidity rate.

The aim of this study is to compare the outcomes and the complications between the 2 most adopted procedures for gastrostomy placement: percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) and laparoscopic gastrostomy (LG) in children. We present our study on 69 patients (male: 46/female: 23): group 1 (37 patients, 54%) undergoing PEG, group 2 (32 patients, 46%) undergoing LG. A total of 5 major complicat...

We describe the case of a hepatic injury after the insertion of a PEG. In a cirrhotic woman affected by a locally advanced cancer of the pharynx, the PEG tube was inserted through the edge of the left lobe of the liver. The patient was treated with a conservative approach by managing abdominal pain and the PEG was removed after 4 months without complication. Hepatic injury is a rare complicatio...

It is the preferred method of feedi...

PURPOSE Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) can improve nutritional status and reduce the amount of time needed to feed neurologically impaired children. We evaluated the characteristics, complications, and outcomes of neurologically impaired children treated with PEG. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the records of 32 neurologically impaired children who underwent PEG between March ...

in recent decades, percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy ( peg), has changed feeding and care of patients who can not feed orally. this outpatient procedure is done in most of the endoscopy wards and provides care, nutrition and medications for these patients outside the hospital. peg has rare complications and significantly reduces the cost of care and treatment .with invention of this procedure...

Tube feeding is commonly used in providing enteral nutrition to the patient with dysphagia. The percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is an alternative to the nasogastric tube (NG) and the surgical gastrostomy. The advantages of PEG are short procedure time, the avoidance of using an operating theatre and general anaesthesia and reduced cost. The main indication for PEG is dysphagia due to ...
