Abstract

The aim of this case report is to present a geriatric patient who had aspirated an implant screwdriver. An 82-year-old male patient involuntarily closed his mouth during the healing cap placement phase of implant treatment, and the implant screwdriver disappeared through the pharynx. As the patient exhibited no signs of airway obstruction, it was considered that the implant screwdriver might have passed into the gastrointestinal tract. However, no foreign object was detected in the esophageal mucosa. Therefore, the procedure was repeated using C arm fluoroscopy for guidance. The examination revealed the presence of the implant screwdriver in the bifurcation of the left lower lobe bronchus, which was confirmed by posterior-anterior chest radiography. The following day, the patient underwent a flexible bronchoscopy, however the screwdriver could not be retrieved during the procedure. Further treatment was refused by the patient. After one month, the implant screwdriver was expelled through the gastrointestinal tract. At the three-year follow-up, there was no evidence of a late complication. Aspiration of screwdrivers and treatment failures of these complications are reported a small number of cases in the geriatric patients. Therefore, documentation of the rare cases is necessary to provide valuable information.

Geriatrik hastada dental uygulama esnasında implant anahtarının aspirasyonu: vaka raporu

Abstract

Bu vaka raporunun amacı, implant anahtarını aspire etmiş geriatrik bir hastayı sunmaktır. Seksen iki yaşında erkek hasta, implant tedavisinin bir aşaması olan iyileşme başlığının takılması esnasında istemsizce ağzını kapatmış ve implant anahtarı farinkse doğru yer değiştirmiştir. Hastada hava yolu tıkanıklığı bulguları olmadığı için, implant anahtarının gastrointestinal yolağa doğru hareket ettiği düşünülmüştür; ancak özefageal mukozada yabancı cisim saptanmamıştır. Bu nedenle, uygulama C arm floroskopi rehberliğinde tekrarlanmıştır. Değerlendirmede implant anahtarının sol alt lob bronş girişinde olduğu düşünülmüştür ve bu bulgu, posteroanteriyor göğüs radyografisi ile doğrulanmıştır. Takip eden günde, hasta fiberoptik fleksibl bronkoskopiye alınmıştır; ancak implant anahtarı çıkartılamamıştır. İmplant anahtarının çıkarılmasında yaşanılan başarısızlıktan dolayı, hasta tarafından ileri tedaviler reddedilmiştir. Bir ay sonra, implant anahtarı gastrointestinal yolaktan atılmıştır. Üç yıllık takipte, geç dönem komplikasyon ile karşılaşılmamıştır. Geriatrik hastalarda, implant anahtarının yutulması ve bu komplikasyonun tedavisindeki başarısızlıklar az sayıda vaka raporunda bildirilmiştir. Bu nedenle, bu nadir vakaların belgelenmesi, faydalı bilgilerin sağlanması açısından gereklidir.
