BALLPOINT PEN FOUND IN STOMACH OF A WOMAN


Dr. Kanuto extracted a ballpoint pen from the stomach of a woman, who swallowed it by mistake 25 years ago, and what most surprised him was the fact that the ballpoint pen still writes.

The woman, 76 years and whose identity has not transpired, has lived a quarter of a century with the ballpoint pen within her stomach. She ingested it when looking on the mirror for white spots on her gorge and accidentally it slipped through his throat.

The thing was that 25 years ago X-rays where not able to discover it: "X-rays applied to the abdominal region could not detect plastic objects that have been ingested," told me Dr. Kanuto, radiotherapist specialist at Oklahoma Hospital Centre.

This year, on a new check-up to the woman, Dr. Kanuto found the pen, which was extracted using an endoscopic procedure requiring anaesthesia. He was surprised to the fact that the pen was still writing, even using it for signing her certificate of discharge.
