A 5 year-old girl suffered an esophageal perforation during attempted endoscopic retrieval of a swallowed ring. The perforation healed spontaneously after thoracic drainage and post-pyloric feeding. The ring was later removed through a trocar placed under laparoscopic guidance directly into the stomach.
This case demonstrates several useful techniques, including placement of transcutaneous holding sutures to maintain traction on the stomach and use of a grasping instrument placed parallel to an endoscopic camera in a single port.
