Doctors Invent New Tool To Remove 23-Inch Sex Toy From Man’s Rectum

It sounds a bit like a scene from MacGyver – a reference for the kids there – but the doctors actually had to create a new type of tool to extract the gigantic sex toy due to the ‘smoothness and size of the object’.

Basically, the existing techniques for sex toy removal were insufficient, so these brave medical pioneers had to think on their feet.

 

 

Completely disregarding the fact that there is already a procedure in place for circumstances like this – that’s a whole story unto itself – the level of innovation here is impressive.

The doctors at the ASST Great Metropolitan Hospital in Niguarda, Italy, quickly realised that the usual (if such a word can be used) technique, which is essentially shoving a tube up there and utilising a grabbing device, wouldn’t solve this case.

The nature of the ‘object’ meant that the grabbing device was unable to get enough purchase on the slippery rubber dildo to pull it out.

So they took some wire and a tube and fashioned something that looks a bit like a lasso. It works like one too. The wire was looped around the ‘foreign object’ and tightened before it was removed safely.

That left the patient completely unscathed, although probably feeling slightly lighter and massively embarrassed.

To be fair, he wasn’t in too much pain to begin with. The 31-year-old just realised that he couldn’t get it out and went to the doctors with mild abdominal pain after a day had passed.

The case proved so fascinating that it was written up in the British Medical Journal, in which Dr Lorenzo Dioscoridi said: “Our new ‘handmade’ device proved to be harder than an ordinary snare used for polypectomy [procedure normally used to remove polyps] and allowed us to grab the foreign body.”
He continued: “The choice of a relatively large diameter of the catheter (2.8mm) allowed us to avoid an excessive kinking of the loop inside the catheter that could limit a correct opening of this snare-like device.

“In our opinion, this new technique is easy and reproducible in most endoscopy rooms, and we suggest it as a valid option to remove large foreign bodies from the colon and rectum when standard endoscopic devices fail in foreign body extraction.”

Excellent work. It may be a bit unorthodox, but when presented with a bizarre situation, sometimes you need a bizarre solution.
