Forceps removed from Pakistani girl after three years
HYDERABAD, Pakistan, Apr 25 (Reuters) A 16-year-old Pakistani girl has had a pair of forceps removed from her abdomen left there three years ago during an operation, the second such case in recent weeks, a doctor said today.
''The girl was brought back to the hospital complaining of pain and after examination it was discovered she had a pair of forceps lodged in her abdomen,'' said surgeon Noor Mohammad Kashkeli in the town of Nawabshah, 230 km from Karachi.
He said the girl was still not out of danger.
In March, doctors removed forceps from the abdomen of a 30-year-old woman left a year ago in the town of Jamshoro. But she died later of multiple complications.
