Displaced Feeding Tube with Resulting Peritonitis - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit depicts displaced feeding tube with resulting peritonitis with five images. The first image portrays normal anatomy showing that there is normally a space between the stomach and the abdominal wall. The second image pictures the initial placement of the PEG tube with the tube inserted through the abdominal wall and into the stomach with the balloon inflated to hold it in place. The third image features displacement of the tube with a large arrow showing the tube being withdrawn out of the stomach and out through the abdominal wall. The fifth image illustrates subsequent replacement of the tube showing the tube reinserted through the abdominal wall but not inside the stomach. Finally, one overall anterior cut-away view of the abdomen illustrates the resulting condition.
