Bebiana Conde, Natália Martins, Inês Rodrigues, Ana Claúdia Pimenta, João Carlos Winck
(1) Background: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative condition, whose bulbar involvement compromises language, swallowing, and airway protection. When oral nutrition is no longer adequate, percutaneous endoscopic gastroscopy (PEG) may be indicated. However, as exact timing is still debatable, we tried to find it. (2) Methods: A prospective cohort study was performed using fiber-optic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES), functional evaluation scales (ALS Functional Rating Scale-Revised (ALSFRS-R) and bulbar sub-score (ALSFRS-R-B)), lung function tests (like Forced Vital Capacity (FVC), Cough Peak Flow (CPF)) and anthropometric data...

Background: The use of gastrostomy tubes for long-term nutritional support in older patients is frequent. Percutaneous gastrostomy tube placement may be performed using various techniques, including endoscopic, surgical, and radiologically-guided methods. While percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) placement is the most widely used and accepted approach, experience with the use of percutaneous radiological gastrostomy (PRG) is more limited. Objective: To evaluate the safety and short-term outcomes of PRG in older patients requiring long-term enteral feeding...

Omentoplasty has been accepted as an effective surgical procedure for fistulated empyema. However, it is difficult for patients with poor nutritional status because their omental volume is often too poor to be applied for omentoplasty. Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy(PEG) is useful for long-term nutritional management. There is no report on safety and usefulness of PEG before omentoplasty. We report a case of omentoplasty that was successfully performed after nutritional enforcement by using percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy in a patient of postoperative empyema with fistula...

BACKGROUND: Magnetic compression anastomosis (magnamosis) is the process of forming a sutureless anastomosis of the gastrointestinal tract using two magnetic Harrison rings. It has been shown to be effective in stomach, small bowel and colon, but has not been implemented in the esophagus. A pure esophageal atresia porcine model was developed to test the concept. METHODS: Five pigs weighing between 35 and 65 kg were used. In all pigs, a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube was placed, and a right thoracotomy was performed...

Flexible endoscopy has evolved to the point that it includes many endoluminal procedures that once required open or laparoscopic surgery, for instance, antireflux surgery, pyloromyotomy, mucosal and submucosal tumor resections, and even full-thickness resection. However, these procedures remain technically demanding due to flexible technology issues: difficult imaging, limited energy devices, lack of staplers, unsatisfactory suturing abilities, and so on. Transgastric laparoscopy or hybrid laparoscopy/flex endoscopy has been described for almost two decades as an alternative to a pure endoluminal approach, mainly for pancreatic pseudocyst drainage and full-thickness and mucosal resection of various lesions...

PURPOSE: A meta-analysis was performed to compare the rates of the major complications associated with two gastrostomy tube placement techniques in a pediatric population: laparoscopy-assisted gastrostomy (LAG) and percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG). METHODS: The PubMed electronic database was queried for comparative studies of the two insertion techniques. The Newcastle-Ottawa scale (NOS) was used for the assessment of the quality and risk of bias in the included studies...

This case study presents a patient who has undergone right carotid endarterectomy complicated by glossopharyngeal nerve (or cranial nerve (CN) IX) injury. The patient had one transient ischaemic attack (TIA) three weeks before admission. A computed tomography (CT) scan two days after admission illustrated a right-sided parietal infarct. The patient subsequently had a CT angiogram, which showed a large, calcified plaque in the right internal carotid artery. He then underwent a right carotid endarterectomy...

BACKGROUND: A barrier to gastrostomy feeding exists among Asian clinicians and caregivers due to negative perceptions regarding complications. We compared clinical and nutrition outcomes in older dysphagic Asian patients with nasogastric (NG) or gastrostomy tube feeding using a pragmatic study design. METHODS: The choice of enteral tube access was determined by managing clinicians and patients/caregivers. Comparisons of tube feeding methods were made during a 4-month period, adjusting statistically for inherent confounders...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube placement is a procedure frequently done in the intensive care unit. The use of a traditional endoscope can be difficult in cases of esophageal stenosis and theoretically confers an increased risk of infection due to its complex architecture. We describe a technique using the bronchoscope, which allows navigation through stenotic esophageal lesions and also minimizes the risk of endoscopy-associated infections. METHODS: Prospective series of patients who had PEG tube placement guided by a bronchoscope...

Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CdLS) is a genetic condition characterized by intellectual disability, peculiar facial dysmorphisms, multiorgan malformations, and growth problems. Majority cases of CdLS are caused by mutations in genes of Cohesin pathway. Although feeding problems are a well-known feature, no specific data have been published about the use of nutritional devices. We analyzed use, type, time of introduction, and duration of nutritional devices in 73 CdLS patients. In total, 29/73 (40%) used a device; nasogastric tube (NGT) in 28/73 (38%) and percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) in 7/73 (10%)...

We report a case of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt incidentally found within the stomach while the patient was undergoing a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube placement. Among the complications of ventriculoperitoneal shunt placement, bowel perforation is rare a complication found in 0.01%-0.07% of cases, and typically occurs in premature infants and neonates [1]. To date, less than 100 such cases have been recorded of which only a few have appeared in the radiological literature. Here we discuss the current literature, the radiological features, clinical presentations and the management...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: We assessed the tolerability and safety of implementing early enteral nutrition in children at 3 h after percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) placement to establish an optimum feeding mode in paediatric patients that reduced the fasting period, the inadequate nutritional support interval, and the hospitalisation time. METHODS: Children with clinical indications for PEG placement were recruited from six medical centres in Poland to participate in the study...

Background: Invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV), dialysis for acute kidney failure, and other critical care therapies (CCTs) are associated with a high risk for complications in patients with metastatic cancer. Inpatient palliative care (IPC) can assist in assessing patients' preferences for life-prolonging treatment at the end of life. This study investigated the use pattern of IPC, outcomes (in-hospital mortality, length of stay [LOS], discharge destination, and cost of care), and predictors of IPC use in patients with metastatic cancer who received CCTs...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The current study was undertaken to assess if the semi-solid formulas could be used with a new ENFit connector with similar force to current percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tubes. METHODS: Experiment 1: We measured the applied pressure (force) needed to compress the syringe containing 7 viscous semi-solid formulas with a 20 Fr PEG tube and low-profile tube through the ENFit connector or the current connector. Experiment 2: This experiment was conducted to evaluate the compression force through 2 connectors in 3 infusion velocity, 7 PEG tube types with 2 semi-solid formulas...

A 68-year-old man, who had received Billroth II gastrojejunostomy because of duodenal ulcer at the age of 20, was diagnosed to have Parkinson's disease at age 57 years. The drug therapy has been effective in the first 10 years, however, recently he was suffering from troublesome dyskinesia and wearing-off in spite of diligent drug adjustments. Although the indication of levodopa-carbidopa intestinal gel (LCIG) treatment was good, percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy was difficult because of abdominal adhesion...

BACKGROUND: Dysphagia is a common complication of stroke and can have a lasting impact on morbidity and mortality; yet there are no standards to guide dysphagia management in stroke patients. We assessed predictors of percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) placement in an ischemic stroke cohort and sought to determine the utility of an objective scale in predicting PEG placement in a high-risk sub-set. METHODS: Consecutive cases of ischemic stroke were retrospectively, identified and demographic and clinical variables were collected...
