PEG stands for percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy, a procedure in which a flexible feeding tube is placed through the abdominal wall and into the stomach. PEG allows nutrition, fluids, and/or medications to be put directly into the stomach, bypassing the mouth and esophagus.RelevancePatients who have difficulty swallowing, problems with their appetite, or an inability to take adequate nutrition through the mouth can benefit from this procedure. PEG tubes can last for months or years.
