Abstract

A 58‐year‐old man with Parkinson's disease experienced peritonitis after percutaneous endoscopic gastrojejunostomy (PEG‐J) for levodopa–carbidopa intestinal gel treatment despite concomitant use of gastropexy. Although gastropexy reduces complications including peritonitis, clinicians should consider structural characteristics of PEG‐J devices and patients’ anatomical differences. We recommend that suture threads are removed 2–4 weeks after PEG‐J and that the PEG‐J tube length outside the body is routinely recorded to assess tube dislocation.
