ABSTRACT
This article presents a study to assess the prophylactic use of multi-unit pellet system proton pump inhibitors (PPI) in percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) feeds to prevent acid reflux onto PEG placement site skin. The study concludes that there was a positive benefit in excoriation reduction in the patients receiving esomeprazole 40 mg at day 3. The main benefit of PPIs for PEG feeds is seen at 3 days and by day 10 this benefit is no longer observed. The use of PPIs following PEG placement is therefore associated with morbidity reduction over the short term but from our study does not appear to be advantageous for sustained use.
