PMID:  20690569     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The presence of foreign bodies inserted into the rectum is not an uncommon situation. Precise guidelines for the management and extraction of these foreign bodies are not frequently described in the literature. Anal access, whether endoscopic or surgical, varies depending on the type of foreign bodies, their size and morphology, and their location in the lower digestive tract In this report, we describe a case of three rectal foreign bodies that necessitated a mixed endoscopic and surgical approach, and provide a review of the literature.
