While percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) has been used successfully for many years in patients for whom oral intake is not possible, it has been thought not to be a feasible procedure for patients who have had previous gastric surgery. However, history of a previous partial gastrectomy is no longer considered a contraindication for PEG-placement. In this case, we aimed to report an 83-year-old patient with a history of subtotal gastrectomy who required a PEG for enteral feeding because of cerebrovascular event.
