Abstract

Although most rectal foreign bodies can be removed safely in the emergency room, some require removal in the operating room. Good results can be achieved if basic principles in the management of colorectal injuries in general are applied to colorectal perforations by foreign bodies. Although rectal foreign bodies and colorectal perforations from nonmedical rectal instrumentation have been a medical curiosity for many years, especially in metropolitan general hospitals, there can be little doubt that the frequency of such problems is increasing. We expect that community hospitals, will see more of these problems in years to come, if they are not already.
