Abstract :

<p>&nbsp;<span style="text-align: justify;">Foreign body ingestion in children is quite often a challenging clinical scenario.</span><span style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp; </span><span style="text-align: justify;">There are no standard clinical guidelines available as on date to tackle such children due to variety of factors. Indications and timing of intervention is decided by the size of the patient, type of object, time since the ingestion, location of the ingested object, clinical symptoms etc. Availability of the expertise, instruments and the endoscopic techniques do play a role.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align:justify;line-height:200%"><span lang="EN-IN">In the present study, we have under taken a retrospective chart review of 57 children presenting to our tertiary healthcare centre over last one year. Management of these patients, challenges faced and limitations experienced by us, has been discussed vis-a-vis current understanding and suggested guidelines by the NASPGHAN endoscopic committee.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
