Abstract: Patients who require a gastrostomy tube placement have traditionally been subjected to various open surgical methods requiring laparotomy. Since it was first described Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy (PEG) has rapidly become the preferred method for gastrostomy tube placement. We present a case report to illustrate the simplicity and elegance of the technique in a patient with bulbar palsy.
