Button battery versus stacked coin ingestion: A conundrum for radiographic diagnosis.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2019 Nov 6;126:109627. Epub 2019 Aug 6.

Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, Department of Otolaryngology, Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

Objectives: Given the potential for devastating complications associated with esophageal impaction of a button battery, there is a need to distinguish between a button battery and look-alike stacked coins at the time of presentation. Given there have been no studies analyzing differences in radiographic density between these two entities, the study objective was to determine if a difference exists between esophageal coin and button battery radiographic density on plain radiograph and to describe the operative and treatment course following these two distinct entities of ingestion.

Methods: Retrospective case series following button battery or stacked coin ingestion in a tertiary care pediatric hospital from 2003 to present. Read More

Foreign body sensation: A rare case of dysphagia lusoria in a healthy female.

Am J Emerg Med 2018 11 8;36(11):2134.e1-2134.e2. Epub 2018 Aug 8.

Cleveland Clinic Akron General, Department of Emergency Medicine, Akron, OH, United States of America; Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED), Rootstown, OH, United States of America. Electronic address:

Dysphagia lusoria is a rare disease due to an aberrant right subclavian artery that passes posteriorly between the esophagus and the spine. David Bayford coined the term itself meaning "freak or jest of nature" in 1761 describing a case in which the patient had long term dysphagia that eventually led to death. Most cases of dysphagia are due to an aberrant right subclavian artery running posterior to and causing esophageal compression, but only 20-40% of aberrant arteries actually lead to trachea-esophageal symptoms, including dysphagia.

Button battery and magnet ingestions in the pediatric patient.

Curr Opin Pediatr 2018 10;30(5):653-659

Department of Pediatrics.

Purpose Of Review: Pediatric foreign body ingestion is a common occurrence that presents a challenge both to pediatric gastroenterologists and primary care providers. Increasing prevalence of smaller, more technologically advanced toys in the household has resulted in an increased exposure to higher voltage batteries and powerful magnets that carry a high incidence of morbidity and mortality. This review highlights the latest findings regarding the patients at risk for button battery and magnet ingestions, the symptoms of presentation, and complications of these objects in contributing to long-standing gastrointestinal injury.

An oesophageal spring.

J Int Med Res 2018 Jul 22;46(7):2938-2943. Epub 2018 May 22.

3 Pediatric Emergency Unit, S. Orsola-Malpighi Hospital, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy.

Oesophageal foreign bodies (OFBs) are a relatively common emergency in young children. OFBs are complicated by significant morbidity and mortality because their ingestion often occurs without witnesses, leading to a delay in diagnosis and treatment. We report an occult OFB in an 11-month-old infant who initially presented without any specific respiratory symptoms, mimicking a respiratory infection. Read More
