The AMT MINI Classic Balloon Button is a silicone device that is inserted into a gastrostomy to provide direct access to the stomach for feeding, decompression and medication. It has been designed as a low-profile (skin level) feeding device to offer the patient a higher level of comfort and mobility when compared to traditional P.E.G.'s or G-Tubes. The MINI Balloon Button's low-profile design allows the patient to be more active and receive the exercise necessary to maintain health.
The AMT MINI(tm) Classic Balloon Button combines the features of a button and the ease of placement of a balloon device.
The AMT MINI Classic Balloon Button Kit contains both the MINITM Balloon Button and the Patient Care Kit. The MINITM Balloon Button is the size and length prescribed by the physician. It includes one 10cc luer tip syringe used to inflate the silicone balloon through the balloon valve and to administer medications through the med port of the Right Angle Feeding Set, and two 4 x 4 sterile gauze .

This last one was changed out in August using the MINI ONE and we have had nothing but issues with it. The stem is flexible and I think this slows down the feeding process.
We are not happy with this.
