Intrauterine Contraceptive Device Perforating the Cecum, a Pregnancy Complication?
Gynecol Minim Invasive Ther 2019 Apr-Jun; 8(2):83-85GM

Abstract

Intrauterine contraceptive device (IUCD) is a widely used method of contraception worldwide. Displacement of the IUCD extrauterine, by perforating the uterus and migration, is a serious complication following its insertion. We reported an extremely rare case of a 24-year-old female patient found to have a copper T 380A IUCD displaced from its normal site to be embedded into the cecum, suggested to have occurred during pregnancy, and being successfully removed laparoscopically.
