Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is a widely used method for introducing a gastrostomy tube endoscopically to enable enteral feeding in patients who are unable to eat but have a normally functioning gut. The endsopist trained in the techniques for enteral access should be equally acquired the knowledge for monitoring patients and managing the complications arising from the initial gastrostomy procedure. Optimal endoscopic technique, proper monitor, early recognition of impending complication and quick management are important because most of these patients are elderly, debilitated, and chronically ill. In this review, general information about insertion and management of PEG was described based on the our experience of PEG and review of literatures. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2009;39:119-124)
