Abstract

The extrauterine migration of an intrauterine device (IUD) can be life-threatening and may require emergent surgical intervention and treatment. A case report where an ectopic IUD located on sigmoid colon within peritoneal cavity in a 40-year-old multigravida was successfully removed by laparoscopy is described. Although the practicality and success of this method depends on the position and location of the ectopic IUD and on the extent to which the device is imbedded, this case suggests that removal of the migrated IUD from the peritoneal cavity is an additional possibility for use of the laparoscope.
