Abstract Purpose The aim of the study is to evaluate the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of the trans-colostomy placement of a button gastrostomy tube for patients with malignant bowel obstruction due to peritoneal carcinomatosis. Material and Methods Data from seven consecutive patients who presented with malignant bowel obstruction due to peritoneal carcinomatosis involving the colostomy site and underwent trans-colostomy button gastrostomy tube placement between 2013 and 2020 were retrospectively reviewed. We assessed technical and clinical success rate, procedure time, duration of improvement, and complication rate. Results The technical success rate of the trans-colostomy button gastrostomy tube placement was 100%, and average procedure time was 25 minutes. Clinical symptoms of malignant bowel obstruction resolved in four out of seven (57%) patients. Average duration of improvement in the four patients with clinical success was 170.8 days. There were no complications associated with the procedure. Conclusion Trans-colostomy button gastrostomy tube placement might be a safe and feasible treatment option for patients with malignant bowel obstruction due to peritoneal carcinomatosis.

Premature infants or infants born with complex medical problems are at increased risk of having delayed or dysfunctional oral feeding ability. These patients typically require assisted enteral nutrition in the form of a nasogastric tube (NGT) during their NICU hospitalization. Historically, once these infants overcame their initial reason(s) for admission, they were discharged from the NICU only after achieving full oral feedings or placement of a gastrostomy tube. Recent programs show that these infants can be successfully discharged from the hospital with partial NGT or gastrostomy tube feedings with the assistance of targeted predischarge education and outpatient support. Caregiver opinions have also been reported as satisfactory or higher with this approach. In this review, we discuss the current literature and outcomes in infants who are discharged with an NGT and provide evidence for safe practices, both during the NICU hospitalization, as well as in the outpatient setting.

Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube is a common procedure. This discusses the rare complication of acute pancreatitis, due to tube migration, causing obstruction of the ampulla of Vater. Radiological confirmation of tubes prior to usage may aid in preventing this reversible complication.
