Abstract

Abstract Although esophageal reflux of gastrostomy feeds is an uncommon problem, severe pulmonary complications can arise. If implementation in an upright position and use of continuous infusion does not prevent reflux, an alternative method of providing adequate nutrition must be used. This nonoperative technique of converting a tube gastrostomy to a feeding jejunostomy is simple to perform, atraumatic and extremely useful.
