Embedded pork bone causing esophageal perforation and an esophagus-innominate artery fistula



Embedded pork bone causing esophageal perforation and an esophagus-innominate artery fistula



Case Reports in Gastrointestinal Medicine 2014: 969862



Chronically embedded foreign bodies can lead to perforations, mediastinitis, and abscess, amongst a host of other complications. A 20-year-old mentally challenged female presented with "something stuck in her throat," severe dysphagia, and recurrent vomiting. Initial imaging was unremarkable; however, subsequent imaging and esophagogastroduodenoscopy two weeks later revealed an embedded pork bone. Surgery was performed to remove the bone and fix the subsequent esophageal perforation and esophagus-innominate artery fistula. This case helps reinforce the urgency in removing an ingested foreign body and the ramifications that may arise with chronically embedded foreign bodies.
