Figure 3: Intraduodenal FB (cutlery handle) with superior duodenal knee fistula

Mentions: The maneuver was unsuccessful in 5 cases, either due to FB physical properties (number, dimensions, weight) or to their distal positioning (DIII) with difficult access, or even to bleeding complications caused by FB mobilization and subsequent penetration of another organ; last but not least, the endoscopist’s lack of experience and manuality, in the case of a 10cm long cutlery handle (Fig. 3).
