Doctors Remove Braces Wire from Woman's Intestine 10 Years After Orthodontics Removal

Doctors thought the woman's gallbladder was causing the pain so they sent her home after she started feeling better.

The woman entered the emergency department in a Perth hospital with pain in her stomach for two days and after a CT scan a metallic wire-shaped object was shown in her abdomen. Which, relatable, right? Except that in this case, it was only after doctors did a CT scan that they realized the pain in question was coming from a piece of wire in the woman's small intestine. After being discharged during her first visit, she later came back with even more pain.

A woman had a piece of braces wire, center white strip, lodged in her small intestine, for 10 years, according to a case study from BMJ published on August 7, 2017. "But when we went to ask the patient if she remembered swallowing anything, she had no recollection". The small intestine, between the stomach and large intestine, is responsible for absorbing nutrients and allowing non-absorbed food to pass to the large intestine.

If you've ever accidentally swallowed the spacers or rubber bands used with your braces, we have the ultimate horror story for you.

Dow, S&P Hit New Highs But Pare Gains; Tesla Leads Autos Higher
In deal news, medical device company NxStage Medical jumped 28.2% after it agreed to be bought by Fresenius Medical Care . The Nasdaq fell by 0.4 percent, while the S&P 500 rose by 0.2 percent and the Dow jumped by 1.2 percent.

But luckily, the wire did not cause any permanent damage during its 10 years in the woman's intestine.

According to the medical report, this kind of incident is quite rare.

Shepherd notes that those with braces shouldn't be anxious.

Doctors believe the wire wasn't noticed for so long because it didn't cause any pain until it punctured the small bowel. She also did not notice three inches of wire missing from the braces. "There might be a higher chance if you're sedated and undergo a dental procedure", Shepherd said.
