The article presents information on abstracts related to nutrition. An abstract presents information on the Buried Bumper Syndrome (BBS). As more and more patients are having feeding through a gastrostomy tube there is increasing number of complication being observed. BBS is a condition where the internal bumper of the gastrostomy tube is embedded in the gastric wall causing obstruction to the feeding. We report our experience of BBS over the last 3 years. All patients who had BBS between June 2001 and August 2004 were identified from the records in the endoscopy unit. During this period 270 percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomies were performed on 238 patients and amongst them six patients had developed BBS.
