Consequences of Foreign Objects Inside Body Cavity
Surgeons have many things that they must account for during a surgery and it is very easy for them to forget about a surgical tool left inside a body cavity. This can occur with countless surgical tools such as sponges, gauzes, towels, and needles. These smaller tools are harder to keep track of for surgeons, and, as a result, prove to be frequently left inside the body cavity of patients. Foreign objects inside the body cavity often require a second surgical procedure for removal before serious adverse health effects occur. Some of the most costly consequences of foreign objects inside body cavity include:
- Intestinal Blockage
- Pain or Discomfort
- Organ Punctures
- Internal Bleeding
In many instances, it can be hard to detect a foreign object left inside the body cavity before health complications take over. If you have recently undergone surgery and are experiencing the above complications, it is imperative to contact a doctor immediately.
