More Than 1 Kilo Of Nails Inside The Stomach Removed Through Magnets

Published by:

A wide range of magnets in Brisbane are produced for blacksmiths, welders, engineers and various industries. The neodymium magnet is the most widely used type of rare-earth magnet. It is also considered as the strongest type of permanent magnet that is available commercially. Magnets are used in applications in modern technology as well as the medical field.

In a desperate attempt to save the life of a 48 year old man, doctors at Calcutta Medical College and Hospital made use of magnets to remove 639 pieces of nails from his stomach. The man was suffering from schizophrenia and has swallowed more than one kilo of nails over a period of time.

The patient was referred by Dr.SankarBiswas from GoborDanga after the patient complained of mild abdominal pain and vomiting. Neither the patient nor Dr. Biswas mentioned any history about possible injection of nails. After an endoscopy was made on the patient, it was found out that his stomach was full of nails. According to Associate Professor Dr.Siddharth Biswas, X-ray results also confirmed the presence of nails on the man’s stomach.

Each of the 639 pieces of nails was approximately 2.5 inches in size with many of them bent. A lot of mud was also found inside the stomach which meant that the patient must have swallowed the nails along with the mud.

Preparations were made for the surgery and all the senior surgeons have to work as a team to ensure that all the nails will be removed. The doctors confirmed that they used magnets during the 2-hour long surgery to remove the nails. It was also confirmed that all the nails have been successfully removed and the patient’s condition is stable.

No matter what type of magnet in Brisbane you require, there will always be a solution available. There are online stores with user friendly navigation to ensure that you will find the right type of magnet that suits your requirement. You have a wide range of magnets to choose from that include neodymium and rare earth magnets including those made from ferrite, alnico and samarium cobalt. Different sizes and grades are also available for any project.
