Abstract

Intestinal Starvation is Associated with Diarrhea in Older Adult Patients after Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy (PEG) Creation

Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) creation is generally recognized to be an easier and safer procedure for creating an enteral route than the open surgery procedure for nutritional supports. However, all enteral nutrition support is associated with gastro-intestinal-related complications such as diarrhea and constipation. Here, we clarified the prevalence of diarrhea and constipation after PEG insertion as less invasive procedure in an older adult (>60 years old) population and determined factors which influence it.
