Foreign Bodies In The Stomach
Category: FOREIGN BODIES IN THE AIR AND FOOD PASSAGES
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.
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.
