Endoscopic removal of foreign bodies using a newly developed extractor

Endoscopic removal of foreign bodies using a newly developed extractor

Endoscopy 20(2): 70-72

A newly developed extractor for the endoscopic removal of foreign bodies has already been used with success. It can be rotated through 360 degrees, so that foreign bodies can be grasped from any angle. Capture and extraction of the foreign body is accomplished with a band-like snare, the inside surface of which is provided with tiny "studs". With the aid of this extractor, foreign bodies can be captured and removed quickly, reliably, and without risk to the patient.
