Keywords: Gastrostomy, percutaneous endoscopic technique, analysis

Objective: Gastrostomies are used to provide long-term enteral treatment in patients with inadequate oral intake. Today, percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomies (PEG) are preferred more because of the low complication rates compared to surgical and radiological gastrostomies and can be performed more easily at the bedside. The aim of this retrospective study is to evaluate patients undergoing PEG.

Materials and Methods: Between January 2014 and January 2019, 325 patients who underwent PEG at the Istanbul Medipol University Medical Faculty Hospital Intensive Care Unit were retrospectively analyzed. The demographic and clinical features of these patients and post-procedure results were evaluated.

Results: The mean age of the patients was 63.8±18.1 years. 200 (61.5%) of these patients were male. The most common indications for PEG implantation were cerebrovascular diseases (SVD) (27.7%). The most common complication in patients was leakage from the side of the tube (4.6%). PEG associated mortality did not develop in these patients. PEG tube was removed in 25 (7.6%) patients whose oral feeding improved.

Conclusion: PEG procedure seems appropriate for the maintenance of enteral treatments, especially in critically ill patients with poor oral intake, due to its easy application at the bedside, the low complication and mortality rates.
