Management of a case of unacknowledged foreign body in the upper airway.

Asian Cardiovasc Thorac Ann 2018 Jul 7;26(6):489-491. Epub 2018 Jun 7.

1 Unit of Thoracic Surgery, University of Messina, G. Martino Hospital, Messina, Italy.

Tracheobronchial foreign body aspiration occurs rarely in adults and may go unrecognized for a long time, but early detection and immediate retrieval of the foreign body are essential to prevent major morbidity. We describe the case of an adult who unusually aspirated part of his dental prosthesis during an attempted strangulation, which was unacknowledged until 6 months later when he was hospitalized with acute respiratory failure and required an emergency surgical tracheotomy. The foreign body was successfully removed via flexible bronchoscopy. Read More

Rigid Bronchoscopy in Pediatric Patients.

Indian J Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2017 Dec 13;69(4):449-452. Epub 2017 Oct 13.

Department of E.N.T, Sir T General Hospital, Govt. Medical College Bhavnagar, Bhavnagar, 364001 Gujarat India.

Aspiration of foreign-bodies remains a major life-threatening situation in children and have always been a source of interest and confusion to otolaryngologists due to their varied presentations. These conditions if not promptly diagnosed and managed can prove to be fatal, but the current mortality is only one percent compared to pre bronchoscopy era (Rothman and Boeckman in Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 89:434-436, 1980). Peak incidence of this condition is in early childhood due to child's habit of putting small objects in mouth to determine their taste and texture and chew while teething. Read More

The choking hazard of grapes: a plea for awareness.

Arch Dis Child 2017 May 20;102(5):473-474. Epub 2016 Dec 20.

Emergency Department, Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, Aberdeen, UK.

Deaths from choking are a major cause of childhood mortality, especially in the very young. Whole grapes are ideally suited to cause paediatric airway obstruction and, though regularly implicated, knowledge that this popular fruit, and other similarly shaped foods, is a choking hazard is not widespread. We present the cases of three children who presented to our institution after grape aspiration. Read More

Authors:
D M Mustafaev

Vestn Otorinolaringol 2016;81(5):86-88

M.F. Vladimirsky Moscow Regional Research Clinical Institute, Moscow, Russia, 129110.

A foreign body is known to be retained in the human trachea only in very rare cases, e.g. due to its large size preventing the further passage through the glottis into a bronchial tube or because of its specific shape facilitating the attachment of the body to the tracheal walls and clamping between them.

Biodegradable airway stents in infants - Potential life-threatening pitfalls.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2016 Dec 14;91:86-89. Epub 2016 Oct 14.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, University of Szeged, Hungary.

Objective: The solution of severe tracheobronchial obstructions in early childhood means a great challenge. Biodegradable stents were intended to be a minimally invasive temporary solution which may decrease the number of interventions and limit the possible complications of stenting procedures. However, our first experiences have brought out a new, - especially in childhood - potentially life-threatening complication of this concept. Read More
