Sažetak
We aimed to discuss whether residual foreign bodies in terminal bronchioles require further treatment. This retrospective study included
patients younger than 13 years diagnosed with residual airway foreign bodies in terminal bronchioles during a 6-year-period
(from May 2008 to December 2014). Parents were asked to complete questionnaires about complications caused by long-standing
foreign bodies when followed-up. Thin-layer computed tomography (CT) images of the chest were analyzed before and after rigid
bronchoscopy. There were 23 children (12 girls), mean age 17.17±6.35 (range 6-29) months, with residual foreign bodies incarcerated
or wrapped in terminal bronchioles. The follow up after initial bronchoscopy ranged from 6 to 72 (mean 43.04±20.83) months. Four
patients were lost during follow up. Nineteen children available for follow up experienced chronic recurrences of cough and fever,
haemoptysis, chest tightness or dyspnoea after sports, or stridor and pain in the chest or back before operation. Initial chest thinlayer
CT scan evaluations revealed that foreign bodies in the bronchus were frequently associated with pulmonary hyperinfl ation
(14/19). Presenting symptoms and signs resolved after therapy, with statistically signifi cant improvement. On follow up, the images
of all children were normal. In conclusion, one or two small residual foreign bodies can potentially be spontaneously eliminated or
probably coated by granulation tissue; thus, it may not be necessary to perform further invasive treatments. However, all such
children need long time follow up.
