Ray Shows OAP's Dentures Stuck In Throat For Eight Days After Operation

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

Researchers are calling for people who wear dentures to put their shame aside and remove them if they're being given general anaesthetic after a 72-year-old man's false teeth were found lodged in his throat eight days after he underwent surgery.

Six days after the surgery, he returned to the emergency room complaining of blood in his mouth and difficulty with breathing and swallowing.

Doctors at the Great Yarmouth hospital believed it was a respiratory infection and side effects from having a tube in his throat during surgery, and prescribed antibiotics and steroids.

The man in question experienced considerable pain, bleeding and difficulty swallowing, with an article in the BMJ Case Reports Journal explaining he also required repeated hospital visits, additional invasive tests, blood transfusions and more surgery, after failing to remove his false teeth before going under.

A man's false teeth were stuck in his throat for eight days after he "inhaled" them during a routine operation, it has emerged.

. Doctors need to listen carefully to their patients and build a timeline of what happened rather than relying heavily on scans and tests, said Dr. Rui Amaral Mendes, an associate editor of BMJ Case Reports, which published the paper Monday.

But two days later, Jack showed up again with worsened symptoms - he couldn't even swallow his meds. He was sleeping upright on the sofa, the authors wrote, because he had shortness of breath when he lay down. He was then discharged from the hospital 6 days later.

Hazel Stuart, James Paget University Hospital Medical Director, said: "We had an incident in 2018 and as soon as it was identified the patient was advised and an apology provided by the clinical lead". Pictured, an X-ray of the man's chest.

Over the next six weeks, he was trapped in a cycle where the bleeding from his throat seemed to stop and he was discharged from the hospital, only for him to start bleeding again and being readmitted.

During this hospital stay, a diagnostic procedure to look at his throat and voice box revealed a semi-circular object lying across his vocal cords, which had clearly caused internal swelling and blistering. He returned nine days later with more bleeding caused by a torn artery in the wound.

But by this time the patient had lost so much blood that he required a blood transfusion.

Cunniffe wrote that the report "highlights a number of important learning points" for medical professionals.

"As a result of this, processes have been reviewed, amended as necessary, and the lessons learnt have been shared with staff".
