The purpose of this book is twofold. First, for the individual who is new to performing PEG, it provides an overview of the basic management strategies and endoscopic techniques as they are performed by recognized experts in their respective fields. Second, for the practitioner who already performs PEG, the editor hope that it exposes them to alternative techniques and more advanced therapeutic options such that they can offer the procedure to more patients in an even safer fashion.

I am honored to have had the privilege of reviewing "Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy" (PEG) edited by Drs Pauli and Marks.
I have lived every day of almost the past four decades dealing with the issues of PEG, it's indications, methods, and complications. During that time I have seen little dramatic change in the initial methods, but rather a subtle evolution in the selection of patients, and refinement of technique. I have been blessed to work with a number of caring and talented physicians who have supported me and made significant contributions to my efforts. Many of those individuals are authors herein.
The present work is well designed, comprehensive, and well written. The issues surrounding patient selection, ethics, technique, and complications are addressed and the illustrations and photographs are excellent, demonstrating even minor details clearly. The editorial comments at the end of each chapter serve to focus the reader upon the important issues addressed.
This is the most comprehensive treatise ever written on this subject and an important addition to the library of every therapeutic endoscopist.
