Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is a medical procedure in which a tube is inserted through the abdomen and into the stomach to provide a means of feeding when a person is unable to take food by mouth. PEG is commonly used in people with conditions that affect their ability to swallow or who are unable to obtain adequate nutrition through regular means. These conditions may include neurological disorders such as stroke or multiple sclerosis, cancer, or severe injury. The PEG procedure is typically performed using an endoscope, a long, thin tube with a light and camera on the end, which is inserted through the mouth and into the stomach. A small incision is made in the abdomen, and the PEG tube is passed through the incision and into the stomach. The tube is then secured in place with suture or a special device. PEG is a relatively safe and effective means of providing nutrition, but as with any medical procedure, there are potential risks and complications. These may include infection, bleeding, and perforation of the gastrointestinal tract. PEG tubes should be cared for properly to prevent infection and other complications, and the feeding schedule should be followed as prescribed by the healthcare team.
