Abstract OBJECTIVES: We aim to present two cases of a retained insertion stylet from nasal feeding tube bridle systems. STUDY DESIGN: Case series of two patients. METHODS: Patients were evaluated from 8/2012 to 9/2013 for retained bridle system insertion stylet. RESULTS: Two patients presented with a retained stylet from nasal tube bridle system. The patients presented one day and two months after discharge from the hospital, respectively. They were both removed at the bedside. CONCLUSIONS: Some institutions use a bridle system to secure nasal feeding tubes. Physicians must be aware of the insertion stylet as a potential source of a retained nasal foreign body.
