A foreign body lodged in the rectum is not a common surgical emergency, and it is somewhat rare for a foreign body to penetrate the rectal wall , but if this does occur and the object is not removed in a timely manner, there can be a variety of serious consequences . The removal of foreign bodies from the rectal wall poses a challenge to the surgeon. In this article, we introduce a new type of navigation device which can accurately identify the position of a foreign body in the rectal wall. By using this device, it was possible to remove the foreign body using a minimally invasive technique.
