PEG - inner pumper torn off
PEG - inner pumper torn off This is a very rare complication. The inner bumper has been torn off following vigorous traction of the tube applied by the confused (stroke patient). The picture shows the rest of the tube with the outer bumper. Normally such traction causes pain, which prevents the breakage of the bumper.
