A gastric tube (G-tube or gastrostomy) is a surgical opening into the stomach, in this case to insert a flexible feeding tube through the abdominal wall and into the stomach to allow direct delivery of adequate nutrition. A gastric tube is sometimes referred to as a PEG (percutaneuos endoscopic gastrostomy). A nasal feeding tube (also called nasogastric tube) is one that goes through the nose and down into the stomach.
