Abstract: BACKGROUND: Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is the main accepted method for long-term tube feeding. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the risk factors associated with early mortality after PEG. METHODS: Retrospective survival analysis in a tertiary-level center in Recife, Brazil. We reviewed the medical records of 150 patients with PEG placement. The data were analysed by the Kaplan-Meier method. Multivariable Cox proportional regression models were also built to test the effects of PEG on mortality. R… Show more

“…Our previous study with preliminary data and 150 patients revealed that hemoglobin lower than 10 mg/dL and preoperative ICU hospitalizations as predictors of mortality in eight weeks. 23 This was the first study to demonstrate these factors as predictors, but we did not have a proper sample to evaluate mortality in four weeks at the time. The present study with almost double the patients allowed us to proper evaluate four-week mortality leading us to confirm that the same factors were associated with mortality.…”

“…Several studies have shown the association between long‐term enteral access devices and early mortality (Johnston et al., 2008 ; Miranda et al., 2019 ; Pih et al., 2018 ) in critically ill patients (Vest et al., 2018 ). In addition, the association between LOS and enterally tube‐fed critically ill patients has also been reported (Anziliero & Beghetto, 2018 ; Atasever et al., 2018 ; Ortega et al, 2017 ).…”

“…[12,18,23] Almost all of the reported causes of mortality are related to the primary disease of the patient; PEG-associated mortality is close to zero in all studies, while procedurerelated mortality is reported as being 0.5-2%. [12,24] Previous research has defined certain factors associated with post-PEG mortality. Arora et al [18] found PEG indications to be closely correlated to mortality.…”
