Doctors remove 230 nails from a man’s stomach in Jeddah

A medical team at East Jeddah Hospital consisting of consultants and specialists from the department of Surgery and Anesthesiology, succeeded in saving the life of a psychiatric patient by extracting 230 nails and pieces of glass from his stomach.

The medical team explained that the patient had pain and swelling in the abdomen, and the clinical and radiological examination showed a large number of nails inside the patient’s stomach, which required emergency surgery to remove these nails and glasses.

The patient’s condition is now stable and he is currently undergoing psychological treatment, they added.
