Dental brace wire found in woman's bowel after 10 years

A piece of a dental wire perforated several spots in a woman's small intestine

"We were all a bit dumbfounded", says Shepherd.

The woman said she wore orthodontic braces more than 10 years ago, but never recalls ingesting the wire or braces going missing.

Doctors were able to detect the metallic wire-shaped object in her abdomen after a CT scan.

"People normally present much earlier", she told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

"It's incredibly common in my professions to see people who have swallowed things", said Raymond, adding that the objects swallowed would often vary depending on whether patients had swallowed them by mistake or on goal.
