A simple technique for insertion of PEJ via PEG

Surg Endosc. 1994 Feb;8(2):121-3. doi: 10.1007/BF00316623.


Percutaneous endoscopic jejunostomy provides good access for enteral nutrition in those patients at high risk for aspiration and poor tolerance of gastric feeding. Positioning the jejunostomy tube through the PEG tube and into the duodenum can be difficult and time consuming. We describe a simple method for gaining rapid control of the jejunal tube and its duodenal insertion.
