Unusual displacement of an intra-uterine contraceptive device. A case report.
S Afr Med J 1984; 66(3):110SA

Abstract

Since its introduction in 1959 the plastic intra-uterine contraceptive device (IUCD) has been accepted as a safe and convenient means of preventing conception. Nevertheless, use of the IUCD has been attended by complications, notably perforation of the uterus by the device. An unusual case of translocation of an IUCD--the device was located within the lumen of the appendix--is presented.
