• A new technique of permanent gastrostomy interposes a vascularized jejunal conduit with an intussuscepted valve between the stomach and abdominal wall, creating a "continent jejunal gastrostomy." In a series of dogs undergoing gastrostomy, the continent jejunal gastrostomy functioned well, with no leakage, and was superior to gastric tube gastrostomy in this regard. Furthermore, there was no evidence of marginal ulceration. A patient who underwent continent jejunal gastrostomy has an excellent one-month result.
