new PEG-- new sutures??

  1. 0 I work in a homehealth setting and have a patient with a recently placed PEG tube-- The PEG is sutured like normal, but above the tube are two "buttons" connecting sutures that go through the skin. I've never seen that before! Is that part of what needs to be removed when sutures come out??
