BACKGROUND Very recently, some attempts have been made to start a systematic collection of foreign bodies (FB) in view of using them to characterize the risk of chocking in terms of size, shape and consistency of the FB. However, most of the epidemiologic evidence on foreign bodies in children comes from single-center retrospective studies, without any systematic geographical and temporal coverage. This paper is aimed at providing an estimate of the distribution of foreign body's injuries in… Expand
A Study of Foreign Body Aspiration in Children
TLDR
The authors determined that for bronchoscopic procedures, the renewal of technical ultrastructure with technological advances strongly contributed to a decrease in mortality and morbidity as a result of FBA in paediatric patients. Expand
Yield of preoperative findings in pediatric airway foreign bodies - A meta-analysis.
TLDR
A meta-analysis provides cumulative weighted metrics for each finding of the different pre-procedural findings in patients who had bronchoscopies to optimize decision-making for the individual patient. Expand
Inhaled Foreign Body Impaction: A Review of Literature in Malaysian Children
TLDR
Prevention can be achieved by educating parents not to allow access to small objects or dangerous foods to children below 3 y age and emergency first aid home measures should be early performed according to the pediatric age group, which can be quite effective. Expand
Complications in children from foreign bodies in the airway.
TLDR
Early diagnosis and immediate control through specialised teams are essential to ensure proper treatment, usually endoscopic, without risk of complications in children with foreign body aspiration. Expand
Complications in children from foreign bodies in the airway.
TLDR
Early diagnosis and immediate control through specialised teams are essential to ensure proper treatment, usually endoscopic, without risk of complications in children with foreign body aspiration. Expand
Airway foreign bodies: A critical review for a common pediatric emergency.
TLDR
A classical triad of paroxysmal cough, wheezing, and dyspnoea/decreased air entry was reported, though many presentations have inconsistent findings and diagnosis requires high index of clinical suspicion. Expand
Foreign body inhalation in Tunisian children: Experience of a pediatricrespiratory diseases department
TLDR
Inhalation of seeds and nuts by children is a serious problem and education by physicians, and especially parents, is the main guarantor to significantly reduce morbidity and mortality in this pathology. Expand
Foreign Body Aspiration in Pediatric Airway: A Clinical Study
Immediate removal of foreign body (FB) can minimize the rate of complications. In the present study, we evaluated different types of foreign bodies, presenting clinical features amongst the childrenExpand
Foreign Body Aspiration in Children with Focus on the Role of Flexible Bronchoscopy: A 5 Year Experience.
TLDR
Introducing flexible bronchoscopy initially in FBA management reduced the rate of negative rigid bronchoscope finds, and compared with other centers in the region where rigid bron choscopy was performed without the preceding flexible procedure, it was found that this protocol reduced the rates ofnegative rigid Bronchoscopies.

Tracheobronchial foreign body aspiration in children
TLDR
A retrospective review of medical records of children aged 0 to 14 years who attended with a diagnosis of FB aspiration the Shanghai Children's Hospital between January 2013 and December 2017 found that FBs is a frequent pathology among Chinese children and tracheobronchial FBs should be strongly suspected in young children who have sudden onset of cough and wheezing episode.

TLDR
The yield of physical examination and radiological studies in the diagnosis of FBA is relatively low but is increased when the presentation is delayed and when history is doubtful. Expand
Foreign body aspiration in children
TLDR
Outcome and complications were found to depend mainly on the time the foreign body stayed in the tracheobronchial system, and it is mandatory to increase the awareness of the population and medical professionals. Expand

TLDR
Bronchoscopy is indicated on appropriate history and on suspicion, and characteristic symptoms, signs and radiological findings of FBA should be checked in all suspected cases to prevent delayed diagnosis. Expand
Bronchoscopy for evaluation of foreign body aspiration in children.
TLDR
There are no specific symptoms and signs to make a clear-cut differential diagnosis between FBA and respiratory tract infection and secondary bronchoscopy should be regarded as an expert procedure and done with great care to avoid lethal complications. Expand

TLDR
A plea has been made to have a high degree of suspicion of foreign bodies in every child with respiratory symptoms of sudden onset and endoscopy at the earliest has been recommended for prompt diagnosis and treatment. Expand

Airway foreign bodies in childhood.
TLDR
Pediatricians must be conscious to check for foreign body aspiration in children who have sudden onset of cough and wheezing episode and should be followed up after bronchoscopy for complications. Expand
Foreign body aspiration: a four-years experience.
TLDR
Children with a history of small particles in their mouths and subsequently showing wheezing, or choking episode should undergo prompt bronchoscopy, and chest radiographs of the children with FB in the airways are inconclusive. Expand
