Foreign body impactions in the aerodigestive tract are common, but have the potential for serious complications. A foreign body may disrupt the mucosal lining and migrate regionally thereby risking impingement or injury to critical neurovascular structures in the cervical region. It is important to recognize potential complications that may arise from luminal compromise. In such cases, expeditious surgical treatment is warranted.
