Khaled Alhomsi*

ABSTRACT

Objective: The purpose of this study is to analyze epidemiological data of patients with foreign body aspiration (FBA) and to show the most common type of foreign bodies (FBs) and the location of them. Materials and Methods: This is a retrospective study composed of all files of children who were diagnosed with foreign body aspiration after visiting different pediatric clinics between 1/1/2017 and 1/2/2020, and had foreign body aspiration. This study included 314 cases with foreign body aspiration. Statistical analysis was done using SPSS 25.0. Results: Patients between one to two years old were the most common age for FBA with 38.3%. Males were more common with 55.7% than females. Seeds were the most common foreign body found. Most of the FBs were located in the two main bronchi. Mortality rate was 0.3%, which is classified as very low. Conclusion: Parents and guardians should be educated about the potential dangers of aspirating foreign bodies, especially in very young children, and the need to create a safe environment for them.

Keywords: Foreign Body Aspiration, Syrian Population, Children.
