Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is a mini-invasive method, during which a gastrostomic tube is inserted through the wall of the stomach directly into the stomach using a gastroscope. Considerring the increasing use of this method in an ever expanding spectrum of patients, including neurological patients, and the gradual broadening of therapeutic indications for PEG, the aim of this work is to offer a comprehensive overview of PEG indications with emphasis on neurological diseases. The PEG technique, contraindications and possible complications are also described.
