Foreign body aspiration is a worldwide health problem that often results in life-threatening complications. Although flexible bronchoscopy is a safe procedure for removal of foreign bodies, it is usually unsuccessful in removing large foreign bodies from the airway. Gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy, which is frequently used to remove foreign bodies from the gastrointestinal tract, has not been reported for retrieval of airway foreign bodies. In this report, we described three successful cases of removal of large airway foreign bodies by GI endoscopy. To avoid rigid bronchoscopy, GI endoscopy can be considered if flexible bronchoscopy has failed to remove a large or heavy airway foreign body in adult patients.
