Abstract

We describe a case of a patient who had a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube placed for enteral access. The patient's medical history was remarkable for chronic malnutrition, coronary artery disease, coronary bypass surgery, and severe esophageal dysmotility. We discuss the patient&'s course through treatment and we review the management options for patients that sustain colonic injury related to PEG placement. We conclude that colonic injury can be difficult to diagnose in the acute setting and that diagnosis may be facilitated by abdominal computerized tomographic (CT) scanning.
