A gastrostomy tube, also called a G-tube, is a feeding tube that goes through the abdominal wall into the abdomen. G-tubes are used for long-term tube feedings in infants, children, and adults who are unable to eat or who can’t eat enough. There are many reasons why a premature baby might need a G-tube. It’s used to supply nutrition when you have trouble eating. Feeding tube insertion is also called percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG), esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), and G-tube insertion. A gastrostomy tube, often called a G-tube, is a surgically placed device used to give direct access to your child’s stomach for supplemental feeding, hydration or medication.
G-tubes are used for a variety of medical conditions, but the most common use is for feedings to enhance your child’s nutrition. When a child is unable to eat enough food by mouth, a G-tube helps. An orogastric tube, or OG tube, is the same tube inserted into the mouth instead of the nose. These tubes may also be used to help remove air from your baby’s stomach. Gastrostomy tubes, also called G-tubes or PEG tubes, are short tubes that go through the abdominal wall straight into the stomach.
OBJECTIVE: To describe the variation in surgical gastrostomy tube (SGT) placement in premature infants among neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) in the United States. STUDY DESIGN: We identified 8,781 premature infants discharged from 114 NICUs in the Pediatrix Medical Group from 2010 to 2012. Gastrostomy tubes are used to give children formula, liquids, and medicines. These tubes are placed by aPediatric Surgeon or by a Pediatric Gastroenterologist.
A gastrostomy tube is placed one of two ways: 1) percutaneously and 2) surgically. At hospital discharge, a referral will be made to have a nurse visit your home. A gastrostomy (stoma) is a surgical opening made through the skin of the abdomen (belly) and into the stomach. A feeding tube (called a gastrostomy tube or G-tube) is placed through this opening.
This allows food and medicine to be given directly into the stomach instead of through the mouth. Giving feedings this way can be done safely at home. A PEG tube commonly refers to all G/GJ-tubes regardless of placement technique.
PEG tubes have long tubing and are often the device used for initial placement. A MIC-KEY, a trademarked name, commonly refers to a lower profile gastric tubes (or “button,” (Image 2)) that sits at the level of the skin. The tube is attached to a machine called a mechanical ventilator to help your baby breathe. extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (also called ECMO) — A machine that takes blood out of your baby’s body, puts oxygen into the blood and then sends the blood back into the body. The gastrostomy feeding tube (G-tube) and jejunostomy feeding tube (J-tube) are used to provide nutrients to patients who have a functional gastrointestinal tract, but can’t take adequate amounts of food through the mouth.
G-tube is a medical device, inserted in the stomach via a small abdominal cut.
