Source: A Manual Of Peroral Endoscopy And Laryngeal Surgery
Gastroscopy is indicated in cases of
a foreign body that refuses to pass after a month or two. Foreign
bodies in very large numbers in the stomach, as in the insane, may be
removed by gastrostomy.

manifest immediately after intrusion, and others may persist for a
time after the passage, removal, or expulsion of a foreign body.
