Abstract

Traditional surgery to remove foreign bodies in the face carries a risk of postoperative morbidity with an injury to various anatomical structures, particularly the facial nerve and parotid duct and gland. Endoscopy can be a great aid in the removal of foreign bodies in the maxillofacial region. Surgical intervention using endoscope and/,or intraoperative images can be minimized, allowing the safe and precise removal of foreign bodies, and saving operating time. We report a case of the use of an endoscope and C-arm fluoroscopy guidance system to remove a very small foreign body.
