Safety Pin Ingestion :Dr.Talangara Nooruddin,Ohud hospital,Madinah,Saudi Arabia


Dear Sir,
I am reporting this case from Ohud hospital,Madinah,Saudi Arabia.As you can see when the resident called me to see a 2 months old baby with H/O FB ingestion I never expected to see this interesting FB.It was a dilemma in the OR as we did not have small enough instrument that can be manipulated through a size 4 scope.We managed to extract the FB by locating the sharp edge which was struck to left side of the oesophagus and holding on to it with an alligator forceps and removing it with great care.It took us a lot of time and patience and it was quite satisfying.I think it was the handiwork of an elder sibling even though his intentions were good.
regards,
Dr.Talangara Nooruddin,
ENT Consultant.
