About

Researchers are gathering information on one specific part of a feeding tube, known as the adjustable skin disk. Researchers are trying to see if a new type of adjustable skin disk, called a Constant Pressure Skin Disk (CPSD), can safely and effectively support adequate healing, and reduced complication rates.

Full description

During the procedure of placing a gastrointestinal gastrostomy tube (GIG tube) or GI jejunostomy tube (GIJ tube), the gastroenterologist or interventional radiologist will replace the manufacturer's external, adjustable skin disk with the external, adjustable Constant Pressure Skin Disk (CPSD) by sliding the former off and the latter on to the feeding tube.
