Abstract

Objectives We aim to present two cases of a retained insertion stylet from nasal feeding tube bridle systems. Study design Case series of two patients. Methods Patients were evaluated from 8/2012 to 9/2013 for retained bridle system insertion stylet. Results Two patients presented with a retained stylet from nasal tube bridle system. The patients presented one day and two months after discharge from the hospital, respectively. They were both removed at the bedside. Conclusions Some institutions use a bridle system to secure nasal feeding tubes. Physicians must be aware of the insertion stylet as a potential source of a retained nasal foreign body.
