This article presents a study to asses the effect of multidisciplinary team (MDT) assessment on early mortality in patients referred for percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG). MDT assessment helps in selecting the appropriate patients for PEG and thus can reduce the workload and cost. There is increasing demand for PEG for providing nutritional support to patients with dysphagia. There is a need for proper assessment to select the patients who will benefit from PEG feeding.
