Its realization is different depending on the team. Some choose the installation of a gastrostomy tubing (Foley, Malecot, and Pezzer) through an umbilical median first others choose the minimally invasive endoscopic or laparoscopic methods using a less bulky device (button) [1].

Previous work shows that a gastrostomy is performed in 18.3% (20/109) after caustic burns of the esophagus which represent 72% (56/77) indications [2,3].
