Impacted Fish Bone
Occasionally, fish bone can be stuck in the throat. Impacted fish bone/foreign body ingestion can cause potentially lethal complications of airway obstruction and neck abscess. Therefore, it is very important to remove the impacted fish bone or foreign body with the aid of endoscope.
Fine Needle Biopsy
Fine Needle Aspiration of Thyroid Nodule
Tissue diagnosis is crucial for any head and neck mass such as lymph nodes, cancer or thyroid nodules. Fine needle aspiration is safe and reduces the need for open biopsy.
