Laparoscopic Gastrostomy and Jejunostomy

The provision of access for prolonged feeding modalities in the debilitated patient remains a significant clinical challenge. It is important to minimize morbidity and cost while enhancing quality of life. While oral feeding is optimal, the presence of an altered mental status of dysphagia often requires that artifiicial access be established into either the stomach or jejunum. If such an access can be placed, enteral feeding has been shown to be effective, inexpensive, and relatively simple to care for in the hospital, nursing care facility, or home.
