Fogarty catheter technique for removal of endobronchial foreign body.
An increasing number of internists and chest physicians have become participants in the practice of bronchoesophagology. The otolaryngologist seeking to broaden his skills in the art of bronchoscopi foreign body removal will find his take become increasingly difficult. We describe a rare case involving the aspiration of a 1.5-cm marble by a patient, resulting in marginal pulmonary function. What we beleive is a previously unreported technique for rapid removal of the object was used.
