Also, exchange of gastrostomy tube can be easily performed because several types of exchange tube, suich as replacement balloon gastrostomy tube are available.

Gastroscopy showed bleeding from acute, large and deep ulcer on the body of stomach, and replacement tube tip directed to the center of ulcer. Bleeding was thought to be caused by gastric ulcer due to replacement balloon gastrostomy tube, After removal of tube and conservative management with H2 receptor antagonist, bleeding ceased
