Transmigration of an intrauterine device into sigmoid colon-surgical management: A case report.J Pak Med Assoc. 2018 Nov; 68(11):1716-1718.JP
We present the case of a 30 years old woman who had an Interauterine Device placed in a fragile uterus (puerperal period) 5 years ago and presented with dull abdominal pain and disturbed bowel habits. Failure to pull out IUD strings on gynecological examination made us suspicious of translocated IUD and its ectopic placement in sigmoid colon was confirmed on colonoscopy and a CT abdomen with contrast. The transmigrated IUD was removed following laparotomy.
