Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Aspirated foreign bodies (FB) in the peripheral tracheobronchial tree may present challenging management problems for the bronchoscopist. Critical to successful removal is maintaining airway control while minimizing endoscopy time. An innovative approach utilizing rigid and flexible bronchoscopy in removal of a distal impacted airway is presented. Difficulties encountered as well as advantages of this combined approach are discussed.
