Conference paper


Dysphagia may occur in different diseases of the upper gastrointestinal tract. Even if a patient is not able to swallow, enteral nutrition is preferable to parenteral nutrition. Since nasogastric tubes cause severe psychological and nursing problems, we perform the percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) as an alternative method.
