Percutaneous = through the skin

Endoscopic = the use of an instrument called an endoscope (camera) to examine the stomach

Gastrostomy = opening in the stomach

In surgery, percutaneous pertains to any medical procedure where access to inner organs or other tissue is done via needle-puncture of the skin, rather than by using an "open" approach where inner organs or tissue are exposed (typically with the use of a scalpel). Endoscopy is a nonsurgical procedure used to examine a person's digestive tract. A gastrostomy is a hole (stoma), from the skin into the stomach.

A feeding device is put in the stoma so that the child can have a liquid feed, water or medication straight into the stomach. An operation is needed to make the stoma and to place the feeding device into the stomach. In general medicine, enteral nutrition or drug administration (Greek enteros , "intestine") is feeding or drug administration by the digestion process of a gastrointestinal (GI) tract, such as the human gastrointestinal tract.

The digestive system also known as digestive tract is a series of hollow organs joined in a long, twisting tube from the mouth to anus Other organs also help the body break down and absorb food The mucosa, which is a lining within the digestive tract, contains tiny glands that produce juices to help digest food/water The digestive tract also contains a layer of smooth muscle that helps break down food by churning and moves it along the tract

Feed preparations Various nutritionally complete prepackaged feeds are available: Standard enteral feeds: These contain all the carbohydrate, protein, fat, water, electrolytes, micronutrients (vitamins and trace elements) and fibre required by a stable patient. 'Predigested' feeds: These contain nitrogen as short peptides or free amino acids and aim to improve nutrient absorption in the presence of pancreatic insufficiency or inflammatory bowel disease. The fibre content of feeds is variable and some are supplemented with vitamin K, which may interact with other medications.

Nutrients such as glutamine, arginine and essential omega-3 fatty acids are able to modulate immune function. Enteral immunonutrition may decrease major infectious complications and length of hospital stay in surgical and some critically ill patients. Further research is on-going
