Abstract The removal of the open safety pin in the esophagus, point up, has long presented one of the most interesting problems in the field of endoscopy. Many ingenious means of doing this have been recommended. I wish to present a method which has proved successful and easy to accomplish, both in my limited series of 7 patients, ranging in age from 4 months to 24 years, and in experiments on dogs. The present method has the following advantages: 1. The forceps can be applied easily. This procedure, in accordance with the usual methods (dangling, sheathed point, ring application, etc.), has always been a difficult thing for me to do, especially when it is necessary to work through a 4 or 5 mm. esophagoscope. The forceps occupies so much of the lumen in the smaller esophagoscopes that it is difficult to visualize the foreign body.
