Supplementary Material for: Bronchial Aspiration of Capsule Endoscope
Capsule endoscope aspiration is an increasingly reported complication, potentially responsible for respiratory distress and asphyxia. This adverse event is primarily managed by rigid bronchoscopy when spontaneous expulsion does not occur. This complication is all the more detrimental to patients as it can delay or jeopardize further digestive exploration. We report direct repositioning of the capsule in the stomach at the same time as bronchoscopy, thus making second-line gastrointestinal endoscopy needless.
