Gastrostomy - Definition


Definition


Gastrostomy is a form of medically assisted feeding, put in place when the patient can no longer feed himself. The idea is to make an incision in the stomach in order to pass through what is called a "feeding tube" by which nutrients necessary for the survival of the patient will be discharged directly into the stomach. This method is used in cases of serious illness preventing the passage of food into the stomach and widely used in throat cancer, for example, due to which the patient can no longer swallow food. This term also defines the operation of installing this probe.
