The Flocare PEG is a tube directly placed into the stomach, by passing it through the abdomen during a short procedure.

Flocare® PEG

The Flocare® Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy is a set for placement of a gastrostomy tube, based on pull technique. A PEG may avoid discomfort and complications as experienced with a nasogastric tube and may provide increased social acceptance and mobility for the patient on long-term tube feeding.

The PEG is recommended in patients who require tube nutrition long-term and is available in a wide range of Charrières and adjustable in length (Ch 10, 14,18).

Flocare PEG is available with Universal feeding connector, ENFit feeding connector and/or a Flush device.

ADVICE BOX
