Gastrostomy without laparotomy: a percutaneous endoscopic technique.

Abstract

A new technique has been developed to establish a tube feeding gastrostomy without a laparotomy. The procedure is particularly useful in high risk patients because general anesthesia is not usually required. The procedure is simple, safe, and rapid. It has been employed in 12 children (and 19 adults) with minimal morbidity and no mortality.
