Prognosis





Category: FOREIGN BODIES IN THE BRONCHI FOR PROLONGED PERIODS
Source: A Manual Of Peroral Endoscopy And Laryngeal Surgery

If the foreign body be not removed, the resulting
chronic sepsis or pulmonary hemorrhage will prove fatal. Removal of
the foreign body usually results in complete recovery without further
local treatment. Occasionally, secondary dilatation of a bronchial
stricture may be required. All cases will need, besides removal of the
foreign body, an antituberculous regimen, and offer a good prognosis
if this be followed.
