Corps étrangers intra-rectaux : étiologie et prise en charge des patients, une étude rétrospective multicentrique

Abstract : The impaction of rectal foreign bodies is a growing medico-surgical dilema that drains more and more attention. No relevant study seems to show other aspects of this problem outside surgery and removal of the foreign objects. This study has taken place in four medical centers of France : Dijon, Epinal, Lyon and Nancy over a 10 year period to present a global picture of the management of rectal foreign bodies, by simple analysis of the patient files. 78 entries (73 patients) were identified from 01/01/2000 to 31/12/2009. 68 men and 5 women aged between 16 and 88 were analysed. The mean age was recorded to be 47 years old. Most patients were single, of Caucasian race and unemployed or retired, lived in the city and came by themselves to the hospital between 1 and 120 hours after foreign object impaction. 8 had psychiatric history, 2 have been hospitalised more than2 times for rectal foreign body impaction. 43.59% of patients had pain at arrival. Most patients came for impossibility to remove a foreign object, inserted in 83.33% by the patients themselves. The most usual objects retrieved are sex-toys. Complications, follow-up, extraction techniques, anesthaesics are presented.Not enough psychiatric or neurological assessment is done and most objects areremoved by surgeons. More information and studies are needed to inform both patients and practionners in this matter
