Abstract

The accidental ingestion of sharp foreign bodies into the upper-gastrointestinal tract is not uncommon in children. Endoscopic extraction of these objects poses technical difficulties, and a number of dangerous complications can occur. We present two cases of successful retrieval of large, sharp gastroesophageal foreign bodies in small children using a new, commercially available endoscopic end protector hood that prevents exposure of28, 1992, October 23, 1992; accepted December 8, 1992. the esophageal and pharyngeal wall to injuries and laceration by the foreign body. This device is simple to use, versatile, and effective and advances the safe endoscopic removal of a variety of gastroesophageal foreign bodies in pediatric patients.
