Evaluation under microscope was a common procedure technique for removal of ear foreign bodies while anterior rhinoscopy and oesophagoscopy
were required in nose and throat foreign bodies respectively.
This retrospective study was conducted at the Aga Khan University Hospital (AKUH), Karachi, and comprised medical charts of patients who had undergone oesophagoscopy
for removal of foreign body (fish and chicken bone) from 1990 to 2015.
Depending on the IDL examination and X-ray findings, diagnostic endoscopy (either laryngoscopy or oesophagoscopy
) under GA was performed and fish bone was removed.
has revealed that the most common places of food bolus obstruction are between 15 cm and 25 cm, and between 30 cm and 40 cm from the front teeth, usually, imaginary front teeth, the frequency being 42.
Further flexible nasoendoscopy assessment in clinic was concerning and unhelpful in assessing the piriform fossa (right side--erythematous and oedematous), prompting a further general anaesthetic rigid laryngopharyngo-upper oesophagoscopy
procedure to exclude a synchronous tumour.
Under anaesthetic, oesophagoscopy
revealed the origin of the protruding tissue mass to be at the cricopharyngeus, establishing the diagnosis of a prolapsed Zenker's diverticulum that was repaired via a left lateral cervical incision.
THORACIC SURGERY: pleural aspiration, biopsy; intercostal block; remove superficial tumour; bronchoscopy, oesophagoscopy
, dilatation K.
was done in all the cases to remove foreign bodies.
Tenders are invited for Supply and installation of bronchoscope urethrocystoscope oesophagoscopy

and biopsies are done if symptoms recur.
is the accepted standard of care for removal of an object that is not smooth, radiopaque, inert or recently impacted.
The scan - a transnasal oesophagoscopy
- is carried out using equipment bought with a pounds 40,000 grant from the Arden Cancer Network.
