Ingested foreign bodies, food bolus impaction, migration or retention of medical devices are frequent, in children as well as in adults. Most of these foreign bodies will naturally pass through the gastro-intestinal tract. Complications are rare but sometimes severe (oesophageal perforations are the most frequent and most feared). We aimed to review the literature on therapeutic management of digestive foreign bodies and food bolus impaction, with special focus on endoscopic indications, material, timing and techniques for removal. The role of the gastroenterologist is to recognise specific situations and to plan endoscopic removal in a timely manner with the most adequate conditions and extraction tools. Risk factors and underlying pathology, for example eosinophilic esophagitis, must be investigated and if necessary treated.
