Overview: An 85 year-old woman underwent a laparoscopic paraesophageal hernia repair complicated by a delayed esophageal leak. Prior to initiation of tube feeds, a jejunal feeding tube was placed through the existing PEG tube fluoroscopically. Following this procedure she had respiratory decompensation and a computed tomography (CT) revealed the distal jejunal tip was extraluminal with associated air in the mesentery and contrast extravasation.
