Patients with a gastrojejunal anastomosis pose challenging anatomy for percutaneous gastrojejunostomy (GJ)-tube placement. A retrospective review of 24 patients (mean age 67.8 years, 13 males) with GJ anastomoses who underwent attempted GJ tube placement revealed infeasible placement in 6 patients (25%) due to an inadequate window for puncture. When a gastric puncture was achieved, GJ tube insertion was technically successful in 83% (15/18) of attempts, resulting in an overall technical success rate of 63% (15/24). The most common tube-related complication was the migration of the jejunal limb into the stomach, which occurred in 40% (6/15) of successful cases. No major procedure related complications were encountered.
