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

"That led us to put her into a CT scanner straight away and then take her to theatre based on what we found", Dr. Shepherd said.

The woman had no recollection of swallowing the wire, but had worn orthodontic braces 10 years prior.

Doctors originally assumed the pain was related to the unnamed woman's gallbladder and sent her home. The case study explains that the piece of wire had punctured her small bowel and caused volvulus, CNN notes.

Two days later, however, she returned to the hospital because her pain had gotten worse. A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true.

A woman in Australia has had a piece of dental wire removed from her small intestine despite having had her braces removed ten years ago.

GOP's vulnerable Sen. Dean Heller gets a primary challenger
He has run for both state and federal offices dating back to 2004 with his most recent loss a year ago to Democratic Rep. Dean Heller wasn't just one of the first Never-Trumpers in the state of Nevada, he was one of the most influential.

Doctors thought at first that it was a fish bone that had done the damage and asked the woman if she remembered swallowing anything to which she replied no.

Doctors initially thought that the 30-year-old's gall bladder had caused the severe pain in her stomach, but a CT scan showed that an object had pierced the small intestine and caused the organ to twist around itself, CNN reported.

Shepherd, who wrote about the case in the latest edition of the British Medical Journal, said it's remarkable that the wire stayed in the woman's body for so long without causing pain or more serious injuries. "There might be a higher chance if you're sedated and undergo a dental procedure", Shepherd said.

Gastroenterologist Dr. Pat Raymond said that it was unusual that the patient didn't remember swallowing the wire. "The case is so unique is because normally if you swallow something like that it presents earlier", she added.

"She is now well and carrying on with her life", Dr. Shepherd said.
