Rectal foreign body

Case contributed by A.Prof Frank Gaillard

Patient Data

Age: Adult
X-ray

A battery operated (2 x AA) object with a motor (superiorly) is present in the pelvis. At least this chap is using the right equipment. Perhaps they should have a cord to strap to your ankle, like a surfboard. 

Case Discussion

Only came into the emergency department to have the batteries changed.
