  • Man’s missing dentures found stuck in throat 8 days after surgery

The journal BMJ Case Reports published the paper Monday.

This patient recovered after the dentures were removed from his throat.

Doctors at first assumed he was simply suffering the after-effects of having a tube inserted into his throat during surgery, and sent him home with mouthwash, antibiotics and steroids.

However his symptoms worsened and, after two days of taking the prescribed medication, he was admitted to hospital with what doctors believed to be aspiration pneumonia - a severe chest infection that occurs when food, stomach acid or saliva is inhaled into the lungs.

Visite médicale mardi pour Ben Yedder — Mercato Monaco
Battu par Lyon vendredi soir en ouverture du championnat sur le score de 3 buts à 0, l'AS Monaco accélère dans son mercato. Sous contrat jusqu'en juin 2021 en Liga, Wissam Ben Yedder avait rejoint le FC Séville en 2016, en provenance du TFC.

Eventually a diagnostic procedure identified a semicircular object lying across his vocal cords, which had caused internal blistering and swelling.

Here's why it's best to remove false teeth before surgery: You just might swallow them. He remained in the hospital for another six days.

Experts have warned that leaving dentures in when undergoing anaesthetic could result in further hospital visits, invasive tests and even more surgery if they do end up somewhere they're not supposed to be.

The man knew his dentures were missing, but didn't realize where they were. "It has always been known that one gets the majority of the information needed to form a diagnosis based on the patients' history".
