A 2-year-old child presented with an airplane game piece from the board game Monopoly lodged in her esophagus. The airplane's wings, engines, and winglets acted like fish hooks that entered the esophageal mucosa easily but were difficult to extract. Chest radiographs were used to estimate the airplane wingspan dimensions, and a Foley catheter was used to dilate the esophagus to allow foreign body extraction via rigid esophagoscopy with optical forceps. Deliberate deep placement of the endotracheal tube facilitated surgical manipulation...

Laparoscopic procedures in children are technically demanding because of reduced working space with careful monitoring of pneumoperitoneum pressure. We report a case of laparoscopic cholecystectomy performed in a 9-year-old boy using slender forceps which addressed all the above mentioned concerns. This shows a possibility of needlescopic surgery in children.

Cryotherapy has been used in treatment of lung cancer for decades. The utility of cryotechnology in diagnosis of lung diseases is emerging and gaining popularity. Cryobiopsy (CB) of the lung, when compared with conventional transbronchial forceps lung biopsy, has proposed to have a higher diagnostic yield in interstitial lung disease by providing larger biopsy specimen and less crush artifact. Acute exacerbation of interstitial lung disease (AEILD) has been well described with surgical lung biopsies and, rarely, with conventional transbronchial forceps biopsy...

The differential diagnosis between reactive atypia and non-invasive neoplasia (or dysplasia) can be challenging in the case of small conventional forceps biopsy specimens of the stomach. Despite the existence of several classifications for neoplastic epithelial lesions of the stomach, there are few auxiliary tools for aiding in this decision besides standard stains. We studied the utility of Ki-67 and p53 immunohistochemistry in this setting and their clinico-pathological correlations, based on a set of 99 cases with cytological or architectural atypia reviewed by three pathologists...

The authors describe a modified perfluoro-n-octane (PFO)-assisted autologous internal limiting membrane (ILM) transplantation technique for macular hole (MH) reintervention and present results from a series of 11 patients. The authors harvested a free ILM flap and transplanted it into the MH under a PFO bubble. The time at which PFO is injected, the extent of coverage of PFO, and the sequence of fluid-air exchange (FAE) are crucial to overcome previously described technical difficulties of relieving the flap from forceps, stabilizing the flap into the MH, and prevention of flap dislodgement during FAE...

CASE SUMMARY: A 14-year-old female spayed cat was referred for recurrent otitis externa and unusual proliferative lesions in both ear canals. The affected pinnae and external ear canals were covered with large reddish-to-dark-brown verrucous and necrotic tissue. Friable material and exudates occluded both ear canals. Proliferative lesions developed in both ears 2-3 weeks before referral. The histopathological diagnosis from two biopsies obtained from the friable materials with endoscopic biopsy forceps was proliferative and necrotising otitis externa (PNOE)...
