Indian surgeons were able to remove more than 600 nails from the stomach of a patient suffering from a mental disorder. This publication reports the Chronicle.Info with reference on NDTV.
Unique operation was carried out by doctors of one of the medical colleges in Calcutta.
According to the surgeon Siddhartha Biswas (Biswas Siddhartha), the patient’s stomach was inflated and filled with nails with a length of about 2 cm each, so the doctors had to act with extreme caution. To retrieve sharp objects they used a magnet. The operation lasted for almost a day.
