Gastrostomy and Gastrojejunostomy Tubes

When a patient is unable to ingest food through the mouth, a physician may recommend placing a gastronomy tube in the stomach. With this procedure, a tube is inserted through a small opening in the neck and into the stomach under X-ray guidance. Gastrojejunostomy is a procedure performed by placing a tube through the abdominal wall into the stomach for the purpose of draining the contents of the contents of the stomach or bypassing gastric contents.
