ABSTRACT

A 52-year-old male patient presented to our surgical outpatient clinic with the complaint of a foreign body that he self-inserted into his rectum. He presented in healthy condition and did not report any pain. Clinically, the abdomen was soft and flat, and bowel sounds were normal. In the rectal examination, the distal part of a hard foreign body with smooth surface was palpable superior of the sphincter ani muscles. Digital removal of the object was unsuccessful. On a simple pelvic X-ray, a radiopaque foreign body was observed. The foreign body could be retrieved with surgical forceps under general anesthesia and relaxation of the sphincter ani muscles. Removal was successful without any damage to the rectal tissue. The foreign body was revealed to be a sex toy (vibrator).

ÖZET

Rektal Yabancı Cisim

Elli iki yaşında erkek hasta kendi rektumuna yerleştirdiği bir yabancı cisim yakınmasıyla kliniğe başvurdu, sağlıklı görünüyordu ve ağrısı yoktu. Muayenede karın yumuşak bağırsak sesleri normaldi. Rektal tuşede yüzeyi düzgün sert bir yabancı cismin alt ucu anal sfinkterin hemen üzerinde hissediliyordu. Nesnenin parmakla çıkarılması başarısız oldu. Direkt pelvik grafide radyoopak olan cisim görüldü. Yabancı cisim cerrahi forsepsle genel anestezi altında anal sfinkter gevşemesiyle rektal dokuya zarar verilmeden çıkarıldı. Yabancı cismin bir vibratör olduğu görüldü.

Anahtar kelimeler: Rektum, Yabancı cisim, Ekstraksiyon
