    A Recent Discovery Made Regarding the Chauvin Foreign Body Remover (CFBR)

    The CFBR was used in the removal of a NON-GRASPABLE, uniquely shaped piece of metal from a child's ear.

    Standard alligator forceps and cupped alligator forceps were not able to grab the obstruction because of the metal piece's uniquely curved shape. The CFBR was used to approach the obstruction from behind and dislodge it from the posterior aspect of the ear canal, moving it away from the ear drum. Once the obstruction was dislodged and moved away from the ear drum, the posterior aspect of the metal piece was now in view and a non-curved edge became visible. Alligator forceps were then used to grab the newly exposed portion of the obstruction and easily removed it from the ear canal.

    In the case of a non-graspable obstruction, flushing would normally be thought of as a possible method of obstruction removal; however, this child had a PE tube installed in their ear drum. Because of the presence of the PE tube, flushing was not advised due to increased risk of the flushing fluid carrying bacteria and other debris from the ear canal into the middle ear space through the PE tube, which could result in an increased chance of ear infection. Flushing would also cause the patient a high level of discomfort and pain. In this case, the use of the CFBR was the most optimum method of obstruction removal, was very easy to use, and left the patient pain free throughout the removal process. When treating children, avoiding pain and discomfort is of much higher importance than in adults due to their lower ability to remain cooperative during painful experiences.

    This new realization that the presence of PE tubes in the ear drum makes flushing an undesirable method of obstruction removal highlights the importance of having an alternative, and in this case superior, method of non-graspable obstruction removal!

    Orbeez Ball Removal from Child's Ear Canal in Only 30 Seconds!

    The CFBR was used to remove an Orbeez ball (pictured below) from a child's ear.

    Upon initial evaluation, the child presented with an Orbeez ball lodged in the ear canal along with a large anterior canal wall hematoma, caused by previous failed attempts to remove the obstruction by various medical professionals. Due to this hematoma, the child needed to be put under general anesthesia to safely attempt obstruction removal. The Orbeez ball filled up the posterior ear canal and was resting on the ear drum. Not only is the Orbeez ball circular (other tools cannot grab and remove circular objects), but flushing was not an option either because of the unique nature of the Orbeez ball.

    Orbeez are kids "toys" that start as tiny beads. When you put the beads in water, they absorb the water and grow into larger balls (as seen in the photos below). If flushing was attempted, the Orbeez ball would absorb the fluid and grow larger, causing it to become more secured to the ear canal!

    The Orbeez ball was successfully removed with the Chauvin Foreign Body Remover (CFBR) in 30 seconds.

    If the CFBR was used by the medical practitioners that initially evaluated the child, the thousands of dollars spent on multiple office visits, physician time, operating room use, and general anesthesia could have been saved in a matter of 30 seconds. Also, the child would have suffered much less!
