Abdominal wall metastasis following percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy in a case of carcinoma larynx
Abstract/OtherAbstract :
Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is a safe and easy procedure to provide enteral nutrition in patients suffering from advanced malignancy of upper aerodigestive tract. However, with published reports of abdominal wall metastasis after PEG in Head and Neck malignancies, a serious doubt has been raised about continuation of PEG in upper aerodigestive malignancies. In this communication, we report one such case along with relevant review of literature.
