We present a video-endoscopic technology for foreign body extractions with forceps. This can easily be followed and is recordable on video monitor in excellent quality. Instead of a rigid rod lens telescope, a fiberoptic video endoscope is inserted into the optical channel of a bronchoscopic forceps. This keeps the endoscopic device lightweight and easily maneuverable in different angles. The principle can be applied to other rigid diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic equipment and represents a potential alternative technology to the use of cameras attached to rigid telescopes.
