The purpose of the study is to determine whether prophylactic gastrostomy leads to less treatment interruption and provide better quality of life in head and neck cancer patients receiving...
Patients having a cancer of the upper aerodigestive tract often need a gastrostomy. It can be performed with a radiological approach. This procedure is not performed under general anesthes...
Gastrostomy tube (G-tube) complications, such as granulation tissue formation and tube dislodgements, are frequent causes of emergency department visits. The investigators have developed t...
PEG tubes are commonly used to provide nutritional support to patients with head and neck cancer. PEG insertions are typically carried out by gastroenterologists, but also otorhinolaryngol...
This study is an investigation of the "metabolics of RYGB with gastrostomy."
The real benefit of gastrostomy is still a matter of debate. We aimed to prospectively evaluate the global impact of percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) in patients followed at a specialized mul...
The percutaneous gastrostomy tube (PG) is an effective and safe way for the delivery of enteral nutrition. The aim of this study was to identify predictive factors for mortality after PG placement.
Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tubes are widely used for enteral feeding after stroke; however, PEG tubes placed in patients in whom death is imminent are considered non-beneficial.
Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) insertion represents a standardized procedure for enteral nutrition in patients with long-term eating difficulties for various reasons. In a clinical setting,...
The aim of the study is to describe the safety and efficacy of bedside percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) placement in a level 3 neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
Creation of an artificial external opening into the stomach for nutritional support or gastrointestinal compression.
Nutritional support given via the alimentary canal or any route connected to the gastrointestinal system (i.e., the enteral route). This includes oral feeding, sip feeding, and tube feeding using nasogastric, gastrostomy, and jejunostomy tubes.
Percutaneous excision of a herniated or displaced intervertebral disk by posterolateral approach, always remaining outside the spinal canal. Percutaneous nucleotomy was first described by Hijikata in Japan in 1975. In 1985 Onik introduced automated percutaneous nucleotomy which consists in percutaneous aspiration of the nucleus pulposus. It is carried out under local anesthesia, thus reducing the surgical insult and requiring brief hospitalization, often performed on an outpatient basis. It appears to be a well-tolerated alternative to surgical diskectomy and chymopapain nucleolysis.
The application of scientific knowledge or technology to the field of radiology. The applications center mostly around x-ray or radioisotopes for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes but the technological applications of any radiation or radiologic procedure is within the scope of radiologic technology.
A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
