Case Report: Laryngeal Retention of a Video Capsule
AbstractVideo capsule endoscopy (VCE) is a relatively safe and easy to perform procedure useful in the evaluation of gastrointestinal disease. Despite this favorable profile, several procedure related risks have been associated with VCE, including capsule retention and aspiration. Herein is reported for the first time video and radiographic documentation of capsule retention within the larynx with spontaneous expulsion.
