Abstract: 
chest pain is one of the most common complaints in the emergency department. Diseases of the heart, aorta, lungs, esophagus, stomach, mediastinum, pleura, and abdominal viscera can all cause chest discomfort (Gulati et al., 2021; Jiao et al., 2021; Lu et al., 2022). Clinicians in the emergency department are expected to immediately recognize life-threatening chest pain (Jiao et al., 2021). Delayed diagnosis further increases the risk of complications and mortality (Liu et al., 2021). In this case, we present an elderly Chinese female who had a history of myocardial infarction two years previously, with chest pain eventually found to be caused by ingestion of a duck bone.

摘要:胸痛是急诊科常见的主诉,食管异物(esophageal foreign body,EFB)的摄入是导致胸痛的重要原因之一,并可能引起一系列危及生命的情况。在本文中我们报道了一例病例:一名67岁的中国女性因胸痛入住当地医院,因患者两年前曾有心肌梗死病史,当地医院以急性冠脉综合征对症治疗,然而患者的症状始终不缓解且出现发热,转至我院后行胸部CT提示食管异物伴食管穿孔。患者紧急接受了内镜下食管异物取出术,取出一根长约3 cm的鸭骨头。考虑到中国有着多元的饮食文化,许多中国人习惯啃食鸡骨、鸭骨和猪骨,这会大大增加成人食管异物摄入的风险。本病例旨在提高急诊医师对于食管异物引发胸痛的意识,并提示了通过及时的内镜下治疗可以大大降低食管溃疡、食管出血、肺部感染等并发症的发生风险,进而改善患者预后,缩短住院时间。
