A very useful and comparatively safe method is

illustrated in Figs. 94 and 95. In the execution of this maneuver the

pin is seized by the spring with a rotation forceps, and thus passed

along with the esophagoscope into the stomach where it is rotated so

that the spring is uppermost. It can then be drawn into the tube mouth

so as to protect the tissues during withdrawal of the pin, forceps,

and esophagoscope as one piece. Only very small safety-pins can be

withdrawn through the esophagoscope.
