Abstract

The use of Balloon Gastronomy Feeding Tube (BGFT) for the provision of nutrition support in internally fed patients is on the increase in the community. BGFT is a gastronomy replacement tube which is often placed in existing stoma tract in patients whose Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastronomy (PEG) have been dislodged or removed. THE BGFT can be replaced by the Nutrition Nurse specialist in the community and there is no risk of Buried Bumper Syndrome (BBS). Despite these advantages, concerns remain with respect to complications and cost associated with the use of BGFT compared with PEG tube.
