Question G-j tube malfunction

I have been unable to find a code for the g-tube and the j-tube but nothing for the two together and it seems to be a very common practice for patients to have G-J tubes placed. What would you suggest?

If you go thro' Index of diseases of ICD 9CM then,

Complications --> artificial opening --> gastrostomy 536.4*
