|Gastrostomy delivery system and method|
A method of feeding a patient through the patient's gastrostomy feeding tube. The method includes the steps of connecting a connector of a filled feeding bag directly to a port of the feeding tube; manipulating the feeding bag such that the fluid within the filled feeding bag is driven through the connector and into the feeding tube; and disconnecting the feeding bag connector from the port of the feeding tube after the fluid has been expelled from the feeding bag..
|Bariatric device and method|
A bariatric device and procedure configured to control the amount of food and nutrients entering a person's duodenum and reduce the weight of the person, in one aspect, comprises a gastrostomy tube having a proximal end and a distal end; a feeding tube assembly, said assembly including a feeding tube having a proximal end and a distal end; a gastrostomy tube anchor for securing the distal end of said gastrostomy tube inside the stomach; and a first feeding tube anchor designed to be expanded after the pyloric sphincter so as to anchor the distal end of said feeding tube in the duodenum.. .
|Jejunal feeding tube and delivery system|
A delivery apparatus and related method for delivering a gastrointestinal device includes a gastrointestinal device (e.g., a delivery or feeding tube) having a lumen to provide a conduit into the digestive tract, from a location external to the digestive tract. The apparatus includes an inner shaft slidably disposed within the lumen of the gastrointestinal device.

|Gastrostomy device with controlled shape silicone balloon|
A gastrostomy device includes an elongate tube extending from a proximal end to a distal end and having a tube diameter. The elongate tube has a length that enables the elongate tube to extend from a position exterior a patient to a position interior the patient's stomach.
Boston Scientific Scimed, Inc.
|Nutritional composition for gastrostomy-tube patients|
A nutritional composition for gastrostomy-tube patients who are at an increased development risk of aspiration pneumonia and require careful risk management, which can be more safely consumed by gastrostomy-tube patients while suppressing the development of aspiration pneumonia, is administered to those patients who require risk management for aspiration pneumonia, and contains a protein source, a carbohydrate source, and a lipid source, the protein source including only amino acids.. .
Ajinomoto Co., Inc.
|Sheath for gastrostoma, sheathed dilator, sheath for gastrostoma with insertion aid, gastrostomy catheter kit, and splitting sheath for gastrostoma|
The present invention provides a sheath for gastrostoma (1), a sheathed dilator, a gastrostomy catheter kit and a method of splitting a sheath for gastrostoma. The sheath for gastrostoma (1) includes a sheath body (11) in which a gastrostomy catheter (2) is inserted and a handle (12).

Ostomy pouch technology
For a person who has a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (“peg”) tube and an esophagus stoma, a method for using an ostomy pouch is provided, where inlet of the ostomy pouch is connected to the esophagus stoma and an outlet connected to one end of an interconnecting tube. An opposing end of the interconnecting tube is connected to the peg tube, so that when the person consumes matter by mouth, the matter flows out the stoma, through the ostomy pouch, the interconnecting tube and the peg tube, and into the stomach..

Ostomy pouch and peg tube arrangement
For a person who has a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (“peg”) tube and an esophagus stoma, an ostomy pouch is provided, where the pouch forms an inlet connected to the esophagus stoma and an outlet connected to one end of a interconnecting tube. An opposing end of the interconnecting tube is connected to the peg tube, so that when the person consumes matter by mouth, the matter flows out the stoma, through the ostomy pouch, the interconnecting tube and the peg rube, and into the stomach..
International Business Machines Corporation
Skin port connector and installation
Skin port connectors for use as part of a percutaneous gastrostomy tube assembly and methods for connecting such a device to such an assembly are disclosed.. .
Aspire Bariatric, Inc.
Method and systems for providing fluid communication with a gastrostomy tube
A low profile adaptor is disclosed to reduce the length of a gastrostomy tube that has been inserted by means of conventional endoscopic procedures or with a replacement feeding tube inserted into the patient's stomach. The gastrostomy tube is cut to the appropriate length by the physician.
C. R. Bard, Inc.
Systems and methods for removing ingested material from a stomach
When a patient is fitted with an external gastrostomy connection to the stomach, ingested food can be removed through the gastrostomy connection using a pump-based or siphon-based system to achieve weight loss. The process of removing ingested food can be improved by alternating the infusion of liquid into the stomach with the removal of material from the stomach.
T-shaped gastrostomy tube retention device
A tube retention device may prohibit the removal of a tube from a body cavity. The tube retention device may include an elongate segment connected to the tube through a rotatable hinge.
Visual inflation/deflation indicator for a balloon catheter
Devices, systems and methods are disclosed for providing a direct visual indication of the relative inflationary condition of the balloon on a balloon catheter after insertion into the patient. In certain exemplary embodiments, a gastrostomy tube catheter is disclosed having a fluid feeding lumen and a balloon inflation lumen, a balloon communicating with the balloon inflation lumen, and an indicator strip having one end fixedly attached to the balloon and a free end movable along the length of the tube in accordance with the relative inflation and deflation of the balloon.
