PEG is the procedure that allows feeding directly to the stomach when the feeding through oral route is difficult. This procedure allows nutrition, fluids, and medications to be put into the stomach directly, bypassing the mouth and esophagus. Prior to the procedure, the patient receives a sedative or local anesthesia, and an antibiotic. During the procedure, the endoscopist places a light and flexible tube into the stomach through a small incision in the abdominal wall.
Sigmoidoscopy is the procedure indicated to view the sigmoid colon. This allows the doctor to examine the sigmoid colon using a flexible tube with a light on it. It helps in detecting the presence of ulcers, polyps, abnormal cells, and cancer cells. Sometimes, your doctor may remove a piece of sigmoid colon tissue to examine under the microscope.
During the procedure, the doctor inserts the sigmoidoscope (a flexible tube with a light and camera at the tip) into the anus. The colon is inflated to obtain a clear vision. The procedure may take about 10 to 20 minutes.
