Özet

Foreign bodies in the rectum are a rare clinical condition that should be noted. The most frequently encountered cause is erotic activity. The first goal of the therapy is extraction of the foreign body using the simplest method possible while protecting the integrity of the intestine. Many instruments and methods have been suggested for this purpose. This report discusses a new management strategy for these patients along with a review of the literature.
