Pierre Robin Sequence (PRS) is a craniofacial anomaly characterized by a triad of micrognathia, glossoptosis, and cleft palate. Infants with PRS frequently have feeding problems that may require supplemental nutrition through a nasogastric or gastrostomy tube. Very few published studies have illustrated the most appropriate method for securing an enteral feeding route in this patient population. One case report described a major complication leading to death from airway compromise following percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube placement. The authors describe a case of an infant with PRS who underwent successful PEG tube placement without complications, and they highlight certain techniques to improve procedure success and patient safety.
