Özet

Purpose: In our country, safety pin ingestion by infants is commonplace. When swallowed, open safety pins are mostly found within the esophagus or stomach, and they cannot be easily removed by rigid esophagogastroscopy. Our aim was to evaluate the removal of safety pins using flexible endoscopy in infants.
