oa Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia - A case report : accidental removal of laryngeal foreign body along with the tracheal tube : letter
Foreign body aspiration is a common problem in children. Laryngeal impaction is a life-threatening event and may cause total airway obstruction. The spectrum of presentation varies widely, from sudden death to an accidental finding during routine investigations. A case is reported where the patient did not have typical symptoms and signs of foreign body aspiration, and presented with only a loss of voice. It was removed in an unusual way accidently, after a negative bronchoscopy.
