SESSION TITLE: Interventional Pulmonary Procedural Safety and Outcomes

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Slide

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 02:45 PM - 04:15 PM

PURPOSE: To evaluate the safety of percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube placements by interventional pulmonologists (IPs)

METHODS: We performed a retrospective study of 265 PEG tube placements performed by interventional pulmonologists at a single center in the inpatient and outpatient settings. Patient charts were reviewed using the electronic medical record system. Consistent with current PEG tube placement literature, complications were categorized as either major or minor. Major complications were defined as procedure related deaths and any complication that required an additional procedure or surgery or the use of non-prophylactic antibiotics or blood transfusions. Minor complications were defined as all other complications. We measured incidence rates for both major and minor complications; data was also collected on 30 day mortality, length of hospital stay and length of ICU stay. Information was collected to assess patient characteristics, comorbidities, reasons to undergo the procedure, prophylactic antibiotics used and the duration prior to procedure that anticoagulation was held.
