AIM: The aim of this study is to analyse clinical characteristics of FB ingestion and predictive factors for complications, in order to reduce mortality and morbidity. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective study of emergency surgical consultation records has been carried out from June 2005 through June 2015 yielded 201 episodes with the diagnosis of ingestion of foreign objects at the Surgical Unit of the University of Bari. RESULTS: Natural Removal in 44,8% of cases; Endoscopic retrieval in 42,4%, Surgical Procedures 4,4%. Statistical analysis was based on multivariate analysis and the model R2 of the Naegelkerke value. DISCUSSION: First of all, the approach to ingestion should be endoscopic. The second approach is surgical in selected cases. The most frequent site of impaction were oesophagus, stomach and right colon. An EGD proved to be the most used procedure with a no morbidity and no mortality. CONCLUSION: The ingestion of foreign bodies is a frequent, complex and expensive condition to treat. Observation and endoscopy are the most appropriate procedures to be considered to manage the ingestion of FB in Emergency Surgery Unit.

Abstract

AIM: The aim of this study is to analyse clinical characteristics of FB ingestion and predictive factors for complications, in order to reduce mortality and morbidity. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective study of emergency surgical consultation records has been carried out from June 2005 through June 2015 yielded 201 episodes with the diagnosis of ingestion of foreign objects at the Surgical Unit of the University of Bari. RESULTS: Natural Removal in 44,8% of cases; Endoscopic retrieval in 42,4%, Surgical Procedures 4,4%. Statistical analysis was based on multivariate analysis and the model R2 of the Naegelkerke value. DISCUSSION: First of all, the approach to ingestion should be endoscopic. The second approach is surgical in selected cases. The most frequent site of impaction were oesophagus, stomach and right colon. An EGD proved to be the most used procedure with a no morbidity and no mortality. CONCLUSION: The ingestion of foreign bodies is a frequent, complex and expensive condition to treat. Observation and endoscopy are the most appropriate procedures to be considered to manage the ingestion of FB in Emergency Surgery Unit.
