Many children require emergency foreign body removal by bronchoscopy. Although a flexible bronchoscope is frequently used for removal of a bronchial foreign body in children, this procedure is difficult in children with a narrow tracheal lumen, even using a thin flexible bronchoscope. This report describes the use of a multiport airway adaptor to remove a bronchial foreign body with a flexible bronchoscope. The thicker forceps etc. were passed alongside the flexible bronchoscope through the adaptor. These findings suggest that this multiport airway adaptor will be useful as an advanced tool for foreign body removal in pediatric patients.
