Impaction of a foreign body in the bronchus is common. Flexible bronchoscopy with use of a cryoprobe can be conveniently used to remove an impacted foreign body in the bronchus. This video demonstrates this process. Sometimes the diagnosis can be missed. Surgeons should have a suspicion of a foreign body whenever there are atelectatic changes and consolidation on radiographic imaging.
