ABSTRACT: In certain conditions that obviate the use of gastric feedings, the insertion of a jejunal feeding tube via gastrostomy constitutes an alternative to jejunostomy but requires a preexisting gastrostomy. Our aim was to assess a new technique of one-step gastrojejunal tube insertion through a de novo gastrostomy.Three infants aged between 3 and 7 months and weighing between 4.1 and 5.4 kg had a gastrojejunal feeding tube inserted using a 16-CH French introducer PEG Kit and a transgastric-jejunal feeding tube.No technical difficulties occurred and the gastrojejunal feeding tube was placed successfully in the 3 patients, the total procedure lasting 15 to 20 minutes. Enteral feeding was started within 4 to 6 hours of the procedure. Neither immediate (<24 h) nor late complications related to the gastrojejunostomy occurred. Nissen fundoplication was performed in 2 of our patients at 12 and 15 months of age, respectively. The gastrojejunostomy tube was still in place in the third patient at the age of 15 months.Our first experience suggests that one-step endoscopic placement of a transgastric-jejunal feeding tube without a preexisting gastrostomy tract is feasible in young and low-weight infants.
