Most of the foreign bodies which enter oesophagus will pass through it freely, while 10-20% of them in most cases remain in physiological and pathological narrowings what requires an intervention. These patients are urgently sent to departments of otolaryngology, gastroenterology, thoracic surgery and general surgery. In adults the most common foreign body is a bone or a lump of meat. Different techniques for extraction of foreign body from oesophagus have already been described: rigid and flexible endoscopy, by Foley catheter, and most recent method of laparoscopic surgery. In our study, we have shown a case where we performed an extraction of foreign body from distal oesophagus by combining endoscopic and laparoscopic method, after an unsuccessful attempt of extraction of foreign body by only endoscopic methods.

Key words: foreign body, oesophagus, laparoscopy.
