Abstract :

 Most of the ingested foreign bodies are likely to pass without an intervention. But a few necessitate endoscopy while less than 1% require surgical intervention. Out of total 25 patients treated at our centre, 19 had impaction of foreign body in upper gastrointestinal tract with lower oesophagus being most common site of impaction followed by G–E junction & upper oesophagus. Management of foreign body relies on various factors as size, type, location of foreign body in GIT. foreign bodies impacted in oesophagus require early intervention in view of high rate of complications associated with it. Success rate of approximately 94% is documented in literature and endoscopic removal of foreign body is possible in almost all cases without significant complications
