Evaluation of long-term lung capacity using spirometry in patients who underwent bronchoscopy due to foreign body aspiration


Purpose: The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the long-term lung status using spirometry in patients who underwent rigid bronchoscopy in acute period due to foreign body aspiration. Materials and Methods: Records of 142 children who underwent bronchoscopy due to foreign body aspiration between March 2013 and April 2018 were retrospectively reviewed. The data of 20 patients who cooperated with the spirometry process were included in this study (Group 1). Twenty patients who were admitted to the routine pediatric surgeon polyclinic without any lung problem and pain complaints were included in the study as a control group (Group 2). Forced expiratory flow rate (FEV1), forced vital capacity (FVC), FEV1/FVC, and forced expiratory flow at 25-75% of forced vital capacity (FEF 25–75) parameters were recorded in the first second. Results: Based on the statistical analysis results, there was no significant effect of age, sex, and BMI on FEV1, FVC, and FEF 25–75 values. The effect of bronchoscopy procedure on the same values, the difference between FEV1 and FVC values was statistically significant, whereas the difference between FEV1/FVC and FEF 25–75 values was not statistically significant for Groups 1 and 2. Conclusion: There was no long-term negative effect on lung capacities assessed using spirometry in our patients who received early-diagnosis and intervention within 24 h.
