A 59-year-old man was admitted to the National Center of Surgery.
The patient complained about the pain in the abdominal cavity, dry mouth, vomiting, fever. According to the patient history, the complaints started a week before admitting to the clinic, and because the intensity of pain had increased, he decided to perform an out-patient computed tomography study of the abdominal cavity.
The National Center of Surgery is equipped with ultra-modern, multi-slice computed tomography "Toshiba aquilion RXL", which is a leader in its class.
The radiologist of the clinic, Irakli Gigiadze noted that the small intestine was damaged by a foreign body. An unknown foreign body emanated from the intestine into the abdominal cavity. The patient underwent laparoscopy. A foreign body was found and removed, and the damaged area of the small intestine was sutured.
The foreign body that had been removed from the patient's small intestine was a metal wire (the part of the wire scourer Cleaner), the size of which was 4 cm and had got into the gastrointestinal tract with the consumption of food.
In the diagnosis and treatment of the patient participated: radiologist of the National Center of Surgery Irakli Gigiadze, surgeons Gigo Pichkhaia, Koba Tsutskiridze and Sandro Kvachantiradze. If not for their timely response, the patient would have developed peritonitis, with subsequent complications incompatible with life.
After the reasonable and prompt work of the radiological department, surgeons and medical personnel, the patient has been discharged from the clinic on the third day and has returned to the usual rhythm of life.
