Screen Shot 2018-12-06 at 7.39.14 PM

Have you always wondered what to do when you or a loved one have swallowed a Lego figurine head? We’ve all been there, right?

All things must pass – including Lego figurine heads – but how long will it take? Luckily there is a recently published international, multicentre trial that provides some answers.

Our Christmas paper is Tagg et al’s Everything is awesome: Don’t forget the Lego. Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health. Early view.


T1: What do you think of the approach/methodology of this month’s paper? Would you agree with their conclusions?

T2: What is your experience with imaging ingested foreign bodies (FBs)? What is the most surprising ingested FB you’ve encountered? (If you’re posting images – remember no patient identifiers!)

T3: Speaking of work… (festive segue)…. tell us how your department is celebrating!

Times: Vancouver 12pm/Edmonton 1pm/Toronto 3pm/UK 8pm/Sydney 7am (14th)/Auckland 9am (14th)
