Neglected Foreign Body Aspiration Mimicking Lung Cancer: A Case Report.

Cureus 2021 Apr 19;13(4):e14566. Epub 2021 Apr 19.

Laparoscopic Surgery, National Guard Hospital, Al Madinah, SAU.

Tracheobronchial aspiration is relatively rare in adults as compared to children although incidence rates tend to increase with advancing age. The diagnosis of tracheobronchial foreign body aspiration can be challenging and warrants a high index of suspicion as the symptoms are often vague and patients may fail to recall the history of choking. The failure to diagnose the condition promptly may result in serious complications such as recurrent pneumonia, hemoptysis, or atelectasis. Read More

Clinical presentation, diagnosis and management of aerodigestive tract foreign bodies in the paediatric population: Part 2.

SA J Radiol 2021 23;25(1):2027. Epub 2021 Mar 23.

Department of Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Alberta Hospital, Edmonton, Canada.

Children, especially toddlers, because of their behaviour, physiology and anatomical characteristics such as oral exploration of their surroundings, have a tendency to place objects in their mouth. Therefore, ingestion or aspiration of foreign bodies (FBs) in children is a potentially life-threatening and common problem seen across the world. In this second part of our pictorial review on ingested and aspirated FBs, we focus on the paediatric population, reviewing the current literature and examining the epidemiology, clinical presentation, anatomic considerations, appropriate imaging modalities, key imaging characteristics associated with clinically relevant FBs in the emergency department (ED) and current management protocols.

Saudi J Anaesth 2021 Jan-Mar;15(1):56-58. Epub 2021 Jan 5.

Department of Anesthesiology, Medical College of Wisconsin, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.

Aspiration and ingestion of foreign bodies present a frequent challenge in pediatric anesthesia practice that requires careful planning of the time and the method of retrieval. We discuss the management of a 20-month-old boy who had ingested multiple small magnetic beads and presented emergently to the operating room with two beads lodged in the vallecula and eighteen more forming a chain in the stomach. Benefitting from their magnetic properties, the beads located close to the glottic entrance could be removed by placing a steel Magill forceps close to the objects and using magnetic pull rather than grasping.
