Airway endoscopy (rigid and flexible bronchoscopy) is an important procedure that allows for visualization of the trachea and bronchi as well as treatment of a variety of airway disorders for diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. Excellent communication between the anesthesiologist and the endoscopist is required to ensure that adequate oxygenation and ventilation is maintained via the shared airway. Various anesthetic and airway management techniques can be used for airway management in pediatric foreign-body aspiration. Read More

Successful Application of Optiflow THRIVE to Restore Oxygenation and Facilitate Retrieval of an Aspirated Nut in a Severely Hypoxic Child: A Case Report.

A A Pract 2019 Aug;13(4):130-132

From the Department of Paediatric Anaesthesia, Starship Children's Hospital, Auckland, New Zealand.

In this case, the novel use of high-flow nasal oxygen successfully treated severe hypoxia by delivering oxygen through a very narrow space between the bronchoscope and the tracheal wall. Removal of a foreign body from a child's lung can be associated with hypoxia and cardiorespiratory arrest. The shared airway of the bronchoscope must allow surgical instrumentation and oxygenation.

A specific laryngeal finding in dogs with bronchial vegetal foreign bodies: a retrospective study of 63 cases.

Department of Veterinary Medicine, University of Perugia, Via San Costanzo 4, Perugia, 06126, Italy.

Grass awns commonly cause respiratory disease in dogs; when located in the trachea or bronchi, they cause severe bronchial inflammation and sepsis. The interplay of cough, bronchoconstriction, and mucus secretion can result in a less effective expulsive cough phase, especially when the causal factor persists. The bronchial exudate could consequently become trapped in the upper respiratory tracts of dogs with bronchial vegetal foreign bodies. Read More

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

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.

Recognizing and acting early on airway compromise reduces morbidity and mortality in patients with airway obstruction. Causes include foreign bodies, toxic/hot fumes, difficult intubation, laryngeal spasm, and tumors. Before definitive control of the airway is possible, provide 100% oxygen with a tightly fitting mask to optimize body oxygen stores. Read More

Foreign body aspiration is a serious health problem in all age groups, and in pregnancy it may cause serious complications for the fetus as well as the pregnant woman. Here we present our case of a 36 years old 22 weeks pregnant woman, accidentally aspirating roasted chickpea upon laughing. She had the complaints of coughing and shortness of breath on admission, bronchoscopy was performed, and the roasted chickpea blocking the entrance of right lower lobe bronchus was removed without any complications.

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

Entrapment of a laryngotracheal topical anesthesia kit during tracheobronchial foreign body removal: a case report.

BMC Anesthesiol 2018 06 1;18(1):60. Epub 2018 Jun 1.

Department of Anesthesiology, West China Hospital of Sichuan University, Chengdu, China.

Background: In order to reduce the irritation of the airway during tracheobronchial foreign body (TFB) removal, tracheal surface anesthesia is usually performed using a laryngotracheal topical anesthesia (LTA) kit (LTA20, Highgreen Medical Technology Company, China), but difficulty in withdrawing the LTA kit is rarely reported. We present a case of a difficulty to withdraw the LTA kit due to its entrapment by the movement of a TFB.

Case Presentation: A 1-year-old girl was undergoing TFB removal. Read More

Department of Otorhinolaryngology,Children's Hospital of Anhui Province.

To explore the clinical value of MDCT and post-processing in children with suspected foreign body in trachea.Two hundred patients with suspected tracheal foreign body were treated with 64-slice spiral CT (MDCT) and simulated endoscopic imaging,then compared with seen in bronchoscopy; Compare the results of MDCT and post-processing with the coincidence of intraoperative findings.One hundred and eighty-four cases of positive children were examined by MDCT postprocessing technique and bronchoscopy,179 cases were obstructed by exogenous foreign body,5 cases were phlegm thrombosis (endogenous foreign body) obstruction; 16 cases of children with no foreign body diagnosed by MDCT post-processing technique were also examined by bronchoscopy.

Introduction: Rigid bronchoscopy is an invaluable tool for the management of airway disorders and an essential skill for an interventional pulmonologist. Since its introduction in the late 19th century, it has remained an important technique for the management of central airway obstruction, foreign body aspiration and massive hemoptysis. Areas covered: This article will review the history, indications, contraindication, technique and complications of rigid bronchoscopy. Read More
