Abstract

Introduction: Rectal foreign bodies are being encountered more frequently in clinical practice nowadays. Materials and Methods: Between 2015 and 2019, five patients with a foreign object in the rectum were diagnosed and treated at General University Hospital of Patras. We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of these patients. Results: All patients were males and their mean age was 50 years (range: 25-64). In all patients, foreign bodies were removed transanally under general anesthesia. There was no complication and all patients were discharged home 24 hours after the removal of a foreign object. Conclusion: Incidents with rectal foreign bodies are very common nowadays. Cases with males are more frequent and according to literature, the proportion between male and female patients is very high.
