The nutrition via PEG (Percutaneous Endoscopy Gastrostomy) is presently a very common and gentle way to nourish indicated patients. This method’s popularity in the Czech Republic is shown by a massive increase in its application since it was first introduced in the early 1990s. This method was first realized by a paediatrician, Dr. Michael W. L. Gauderer, in 1979 at the University Hospital in Cleveland, where he used it for a 4 month old infant. Today patients in need of the PEG implementation are those who are at risk of malnutrition or those who are malnourished. Assumption of a long term nutritional therapy, especially longer than 6 weeks, is another implementation criterion. In this article we are analysing some of demographic and psychosocial factors of PEG implementation during 2.5 - year period at university hospital Hradec Králové.
