Abstract

Laparoscopy is commonly indicated to aid in the diagnostic workup of ascites, liver disease, metastatic carcinoma, jaundice, portal hypertension, and numerous gynecologic disorders. An additional indication is the retrieval of intraperitoneal foreign objects. The majority of such foreign body cases have been reported in the gynecologic journals and involve the removal of intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUCDS) which have migrated into the peritoneal cavity. We herein report a case of laparoscopic retrieval of a sheared-off polyethylene catheter consequent to diagnostic abdominal paracentesis.
