Pediatrician performed point-of-care ultrasound for the detection of ingested foreign bodies: case series and review of the literature.

J Ultrasound 2020 Mar 25. Epub 2020 Mar 25.

Emergency Department and Trauma Center, Meyer University Childrens' Hospital, Florence, Italy.

Purpose: Foreign body (FB) ingestions represent a common problem in children. History and physical examination are commonly not enough to diagnose a foreign body ingestion; therefore, conventional radiography is routinely used to detect them. Point-of-care ultrasound is widely used in the emergency department for several diagnostic applications but there are few articles describing the possibility to use point-of-care ultrasound to detect ingested foreign bodies, and the necessary training to get competent in this application.

Department of Pediatrics and Child Health, Nihon University School of Medicine, 30-1, Oyaguchi, Kami-cho, Itabashi-ku, Tokyo 173-8610, Japan.

When children accidentally ingest foreign bodies, they may be unable to communicate adequately; it is often difficult to identify the causative foreign body unless someone is watching over them. In such instances, to identify the causative foreign body during clinical practice, we aimed to determine if it varies according to age. From April 2013 to June 2018, 252 records of pediatric patients with a confirmed diagnosis of foreign-body ingestion were retrospectively examined in a Japanese university hospital. Read More

Pediatrics 2020 01 12;145(1). Epub 2019 Dec 12.

Children's Mercy Kansas City, Kansas City, Missouri.

Mental health disorders in adolescents present some of the most challenging of all ethical dilemmas. This is particularly true when they lead to self-injurious behavior that can only be prevented by either limiting the freedom of the adolescent or forcing treatments on them that they do not want. Intentional and repeated foreign-body ingestion (FBI) in youth is a poorly understood self-injurious behavior that can be life-threatening. Read More

Clin Endosc 2018 Mar 30;51(2):129-136. Epub 2018 Mar 30.

Department of Pediatrics, Chungbuk National University College of Medicine, Cheongju, Korea.

Foreign body (FB) ingestion in children is common and most children are observed to be between 6 months and 3 years of age. Although most FBs in the gastrointestinal tract pass spontaneously without complications, endoscopic or surgical removal may be required in a few children. Thus, FB ingestion presents a significant clinical difficulty in pediatric gastroenterological practice. Read More

Trauma hazards in children: An update for the busy clinician.

J Paediatr Child Health 2017 Nov 30;53(11):1096-1100. Epub 2017 Jun 30.

Douglas Cohen Department of Paediatric Surgery, Children's Hospital at Westmead, University of Sydney, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Trauma and injury continue to be common in children and remain an important cause of mortality and morbidity. Legislation mandating the use of helmets for all cyclists appears to have been effective in reducing the incidence and severity of head and facial injuries, with no clear evidence of a reduction in cycling usage or activity. Straddle injuries, whilst uncommon and generally minor, require careful clinical assessment as they may be associated with urethral trauma. Read More

Movement Disorder Associated With Foreign Body Ingestion.

Pediatrics 2017 Apr 15;139(4). Epub 2017 Mar 15.

Department of Pediatrics, Tulane Lakeside Hospital for Women and Children, Metairie, Louisiana.

We present a case of recurrent bouts of irritability with arching, head extension, and lethargy in a previously healthy 10-month-old girl admitted to the PICU for acute onset of a movement disorder. The patient's vital signs and physical examination were unremarkable but recurrent bouts of abnormal movements persisted for the first 10 hours of admission in the PICU. Possible diagnoses, such as meningitis, status epilepticus, space occupying lesions, and toxic ingestions, were ruled out because of negative cerebrospinal fluid analysis, normal EEG, and negative results of other ancillary tests.
