Gastrojejunostomy Tubes

Intussusceptions may complicate the presence of a gas-trojejunostomy (GJ) tube [22] (Fig. 9). Most of the patients presenting with this complication are usually clinically stable and do not require urgent reduction of the intussusception. Most can be managed by replacing the tube with a standard or a shortened GJ tube or with a gas-trostomy tube. However, manipulation of the GJ tube and flushing with air or saline may also be helpful. Surgery is rarely required for reduction.
