Jejunostomy Tube

Endoscopic appearance of a jejunostomy tube entering the stomach via a gastrostomy tube and exiting the pylorus. This type of jejunal feeding tube is often referred to as a PEG-J (to indicate that it is a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy tube which has been converted to a jejunostomy tube) in order to distinguish it from a D-PEJ (direct percutaneous endoscopic jejunostomy).
