Endoscopic Foreign Body Removal

Foreign body is an object which can be accidentally swallowed by the children, professional and sometime by adults also. The most common foreign bodies are food, plastic tools, coins, denture and small household items. Successful removal depends on several factors, including location of the foreign body, type of material, whether the material is graspable or non graspable. However, doctors will recommend that foreign body removal is required depending on various factors.

Most of these foreign bodies can be removed if found within the reach of upper GI endoscopy.

The ultimate goal of treatment is the complete removal of foreign bodies, avoiding possible secondary complications that may include lesions of the bladder and urethra, peritonitis, urinary tract infections, urethrorrhagia, or hematuria

Rarely, foreign bodies may be eliminated spontaneously during urination.

After diagnosing this condition, analgesics and anticholinergics will be administered to control pain and irritative urinary symptoms. Also, antibiotic prophylaxis of urinary tract infections or of urosepsis is recommended in patients with pre-existing infections. The extraction of intravesical foreign bodies can be performed endoscopically, percutaneously, laparoscopically, or by open surgery. The type of approach will be chosen according to the general status of the patient; the integrity of the urinary tract; and the size, shape, and nature of the intravesical object.
