Foreign Bodies In The Stomach


Categories: FOREIGN BODIES IN THE AIR AND FOOD PASSAGES
Sources: 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.



The symptomatology of foreign bodies may be epitomized as given

below; but it must be kept in mind, that certain symptoms may not be

manifest immediately after intrusion, and others may persist for a

time after the passage, removal, or expulsion of a foreign body.
