Endoscopic Removal of Foreign Bodies in the Large Bowel
17 March 2008 (online)
Endoscopic removal of foreign bodies from the intestinal tract is an extremely useful method.
In our series, foreign bodies passing down from the upper intestinal tract were removed endoscopically from the rectum and colon of 13 patients. No complications were observed.
It can be concluded that endoscopy is a simple, safe and effective method which, in many cases, avoids surgical procedures.
