Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy.

Hello awesomites let's know about PEG .

PEG stands for Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy .We normally use PEG tube .
also known as Feeding tube,Esophagogastroduodenoscopy  tube.=P

In simple language PEG is method of placing a tube into the stomach percutaneously followed by endoscopy .
Tube is passed into a patient's stomach through abdominal wall .
It is preferred route of nutritional support in patients having dysphagia or in unconscious patients.
It offers superior exposure to GI systems.
Most of the PEG tube has mushroom shaped device at the end that holds it in the stomach and prevent it from falling .If it falls do not wait till next day the hole may heal and this may create complications.

Whereas PEG  is also contraindicated in:-
-Distal enteral obstruction.
