Important notes:

The Freka Belly Button may only be inserted as a replacement system via a well-formed and fully-healed stoma tract, no earlier than 4 weeks after initial positioning of a PEG. 

In patients:

  • with malnutrition or
  • being treated with steroids

the stoma often takes longer than 4 weeks to heal completely. 

Freka Belly Button Care

The Freka® Belly Button must be flushed with 20ml of water before and after each feed or medicine administration or at least once a day. 

Important notes:

  • Only medication designated for feeding tube administration can be administered 
  • Do not use fluids containing acid, particulary fruit teas or fruit juices, when feeding enterally, as these can cause the feed to coagulate and thereby block the Freka® Belly Button
  • In the event of a blockage, under no circumstances should an attempt be made to free the Freka® Belly Button using high pressure (small-volume syringe, e.g. 2 or 5ml) or using an introducer. This poses the risk of perforation
  • Do not use paraffin oil or Vaseline
  • For balloon fill volumes please refer to Instructions for Use (IFU) or the patient aftercare guidance
