BackgroundThe efficacy of flexible endoscopy by a single endoscopist in the therapy of foreign body ingestion was assessed at an adult urban emergency hospital.MethodsFifty-one adult patients with upper GI foreign body ingestion treated at Detroit Receiving Hospital from 1988 to 2004 were identified. Endoscopic and hospital medical records were reviewed to evaluate etiology, treatment, and outcomes for these patients.ResultsThe etiology was related to eating in 38(75%) patients, most of whom…

TLDR
Endoscopic management is the first choice for PEFBs when the duration of impaction is less than 24 hours and there are no abscesses outside of the esophageal tract as determined by a computed tomography scan.
Foreign bodies ingestion: what responsibility?
Role of plain radiography in the assessment of ingested foreign bodies in the pediatric patients.
TLDR
The goals of the initial pediatric patient assessment are to identify the type of object ingested, its location in the gastrointestinal tract, and the presence of associated complications.
Esophageal Foreign Bodies: Food Impaction and Foreign Bodies
TLDR
It is important to understand the patients at risk for food impactions and ingestion of foreign bodies, the best method for a prompt diagnosis, and the correct management with avoidance of unwanted complications.
Urgent endoscopy in patients with "true foreign bodies" in the upper gastrointestinal tract - a retrospective study of the period 1994-2018.
TLDR
Urgent endoscopy has proved successful in removing true foreign bodies from the upper gastrointestinal tract in the analyzed period.
Endoscopic Management of Foreign Bodies
TLDR
This chapter summarizes the approach, techniques, and existing evidence on endoscopic management of foreign body ingestion.
Esophageal foreign bodies in adults: systematic review of the literature
TLDR
Effective prevention of FB impaction should focus on accurate diagnostic work-up to search for an underlying motility disorder after a first episode of esophageal impaction, even if transient and self-resolving.

TLDR
The endoscopic procedure is a successful technique which allows the removal of the foreign bodies in almost all cases without significant complications, and surgery is rarely required.

TLDR
Rigid esophagoscopy was used successfully for foreign body removal in 99% of the cases and fish bones were the most frequently responsible foreign body and the cervical esophagus was the most frequent level of impaction.

TLDR
Although ingestion of foreign bodies may be a frequent occurrence, 80 per cent of documented ingested foreign bodies pass through the gastrointestinal tract spontaneously and most foreign bodies are best managed by "intelligent neglect".
