Those interested in a paper with lots of references regarding
bougienage, Foley catheter removal, and endoscopic removal of esophageal
coins might be interested in a paper I published last year. The paper
goes through a cost-effectiveness comparison between the three methods.
The reference: Conners GP. A literature-based comparison of three
methods of pediatric esophageal coin removal. Ped Emerg Care (April)
I would be happy to send anyone who wants one a reprint; just e-mail me.
