Metallic foreign body deep
in the prevertebral space after an endomyocardial biopsy: a case report
Although inspirated or ingested
foreign bodies constitute a common otolaryngologic emergency, the removal of a
solitary retained foreign body from the neck has seldom been described in the
literature. The ingestion of foreign bodies commonly results in perforated
viscose or extraluminal migration to adjacent structures quite a long period of
time after the fact. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first English
language description of an endomyocardial biopsy complicated by a retained
foreign body deep in the prevertebral space of the patient’s neck. We report
such a case and share our experience in treating it.
A 68-year-old Asian man suffering
right-sided heart failure underwent an endomyocardial biopsy via his right
internal jugular vein. After undergoing the procedure, he was found to have
retained a metallic cup tip which had become lodged in his neck. A surgeon then
performed neck exploration and the foreign body was removed without adverse
Decision making as to whether to
remove the foreign body or not remains controversial. However, the later
incidence of adhesive fibrosis or, even worse, of a catastrophic abscess or
adjacent vascular injury might occur if the foreign body was not removed. Early
exploration is suggested, if the patient’s condition makes this feasible.
