A Method for Performing a Gastrostomy Using a Polypropylene Mesh
Gastrostomy is one of the main palliative surgical methods for restoring enteral nutrition. The aim of the study was to develop a new method of gastrostomy that reduces the frequency of complications. The prototype for the described method is Depage-Janeway gastrostomy with use of the GIA stapler. The proposed method is characterized by the use of polypropylene mesh. This provides a tight attachment of the wall of the stomach to the anterior abdominal wall, which reduces the risk of complications.
