Peg Feeding

Peg Feeding

Overview

Overview

PEG stands for percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy, a procedure in which a flexible feeding tube is placed through the abdominal wall and into the stomach. PEG allows nutrition, fluids and/or medications to be put directly into the stomach, bypassing the mouth and esophagus. PEG feeding is used where patients cannot maintain adequate nutrition with oral intake. However, the simplicity of PEG feeding has led to some to be concerned about its use when there is little or no clinical benefit. Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) feeding tubes were first described in 1980 for use in children. PEG feeding tubes are now increasingly used for enteral nutrition for both children and adults. PEG may be used with a jejunal extension.
