Retrieval of lost Copper-T from the rectum.

Abstract

A case of lost Copper-T lying partly in the rectal lumen and its removal through the rectal route is described. This case emphasises the importance of rectal examination in the case of lost intra-uterine contraceptive device (IUCD) and highlights the possibility of safe retrieval of an IUCD through the rectal route even when it is partly embedded in the rectal wall.
