Man's Dentures Found Lodged Inside His Throat

Aug 14, 2019

You know the feeling when you can’t find your glasses and they were just on your head? That is what it was for a man who accidentally had dentures lodged in his larynx for over a week after surgery.

The 72-year-old man went to the emergency room after undergoing surgery as he found it difficult to breathe and swallow and was coughing up blood.

When he first visited the emergency room six days after his surgery, he was identified with pneumonia and was provided medication to treat the infection and cough. But two days later, he returned to the emergency room.

The unknown man experienced worse symptoms. The man said that in addition to the previously described symptoms, he was also going through increased pain, loss of voice, and could not swallow the medication as well.

This time doctors found the culprit: A pair of dentures lodged in his larynx. The man was shaken as per him the dentures had been lost in the hospital when he got surgery the previous week.

Although it's not directly clear how the dentures ended up in his larynx.

Dr. Rui Amaral Mendes, an associate editor of BMJ Case Reports told the media that this case demonstrates how important doctor-patient communication is.

A second operation was carried out to remove the dentures.
