The importance of technical skills assessment during an airway foreign body removal course.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2019 Feb 9;117:1-5. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA; Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Seattle Children's, Seattle, WA, USA.

Purpose: Surgical simulation has proven useful in training for high-acuity, low frequency events such as airway foreign body removal (AWFBR). Studies have supported the role of simulation to improve trainee confidence and technical proficiency, but rigorous methodology is often lacking. Through a pilot study, we sought to evaluate the feasibility and utility of two-view video capture for rigorous assessment of trainee skill in an educational course setting. Read More

Department of Emergency Medicine, UC San Diego, 200 West Arbor Drive, MC 8676, San Diego, CA 92103-8676, USA. Electronic address:

Foreign bodies to the ear, nose, and throat often can be managed in the emergency department, particularly if the patient offers a history consistent with foreign body and is calm and compliant with the examination and removal attempts. Tips for success include analgesia, adequate visualization, immobilization of the patient's head, dexterity and experience level of the provider, and minimizing attempts at removal. It is critical to recognize the risks involved with certain retained objects (button batteries or sharp objects) and when to call a consultant to help facilitate safe, successful removal of objects to the ear, nose, and throat.

National Capital Poison Center, 3201 New Mexico Avenue Northwest #310, Washington, DC 20016, USA.

The pediatric button battery (BB) hazard has been recognized for several decades. In 2012, the National Button Battery Task Force was established, and most manufacturers have improved warning labels, more secure packaging, and made BB compartments in products are more secure. Tissue neutralization before BB removal (ie, honey or sucralfate/Carafate®) is an effective way to reduce the rate of BB injury. Read More

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Sep 27;2018. Epub 2018 Sep 27.

Department of Urology, King George's Medical University, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Various types of foreign bodies have been recovered from the urinary bladder and urethra including telephone cables, pocket battery, little fish, pen tips and so on. Management of such cases include either endoscopic removal or open surgery. We report the case of an 18-year-old boy who inserted an electric wire in the urethra for eroticism and was managed by endoscopic removal following fragmentation of wire under local anaesthesia using holmium laser.

On a knife-edge: clinical uncertainty with an extensive knife blade in situ in the craniofacial region.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Sep 23;2018. Epub 2018 Sep 23.

Trauma Department, Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, Johannesburg, South Africa.

A 25-year-old man presented to the trauma department following a penetrating stab wound to his left infraorbital margin with retained knife blade causing superoposterior displacement of the globe. Plain skull X-ray revealed an extensive retained blade with subsequent CT imaging revealing the tip of the blade had reached the right styloid process with no neurovascular compromise. Initial concern was primarily for the left eye leading to ophthalmology being the first specialty requested to review the patient. Read More

Significant cephalad lead migration with use of externally powered spinal cord stimulator.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Sep 21;2018. Epub 2018 Sep 21.

Neurosurgery, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Spinal cord stimulation has been an effective therapy for treatment of chronic low back pain over the last four decades. Over the years, there have been significant technological advances in the neuromodulation devices. Externally powered neuromodulation devices, that do not require an internal pulse generator (IPG) implantation, have recently been approved for treatment of chronic pain and the data on potential pitfalls and unforeseen complications with these devices is minimal.

Flexible versus rigid endoscopy in the management of esophageal foreign body impaction: systematic review and meta-analysis.

World J Emerg Surg 2018 12;13:42. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

Department of Biomedical Sciences for Health, Division of General Surgery, IRCCS Policlinico San Donato, University of Milan, Piazza E. Malan, 1, 20097 San Donato Milanese, Milan, Italy.

Background: Foreign body (FB) impaction accounts for 4% of emergency endoscopies in clinical practice. Flexible endoscopy (FE) is recommended as the first-line therapeutic option because it can be performed under sedation, is cost-effective, and is well tolerated. Rigid endoscopy (RE) under general anesthesia is less used but may be advantageous in some circumstances. Read More

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Sep;97(37):e12147

Pediatric Department of Respiration II, The First Hospital of Jilin University, Changchun, China.

Rationale: Bronchial foreign body aspiration is a critical condition that jeopardizes the respiratory function of children. Prompt diagnosis and removal of the foreign body can reduce occurrence of foreign body complications and mortality. Aspiration of spherical plastic beads is rare, and the bead is difficult to retrieve. Read More

Accuracy of chest X-Ray measurements of pediatric esophageal coins.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2018 Oct 10;113:1-3. Epub 2018 Jul 10.

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

Objective: To determine the accuracy of chest x-ray measurements in children using ingested radiopaque foreign bodies of known size.

Methods: A database of foreign body ingestions at a tertiary care children's hospital was queried from 2013 to 2016 for children who had ingested a US coin, had a pre-operative chest x-ray and documentation of coin type at the time of endoscopic removal. Four blinded research subjects measured the coin diameter on chest x-ray using iSite PACS software and based on the measurement, predicted the coin type. Read More

[Treatment of foreign bodies in the upper third of the esophagus without endoscopy: is it a challenge for practitioners working in isolation?]

Pan Afr Med J 2018 18;30:42. Epub 2018 May 18.

Service d'Anesthésie-Réanimation, Hôpital d'Instruction des Armées Desgenettes, Lyon, France.

The treatment of foreign bodies in the upper third of the esophagus is well codified and it is more often based on endoscopic treatment. This specific instrument as well as gastroenterologists trained in its use are sometimes missing in African countries. Physicians have to use alternative approaches to treat this disease. Read More
