A Syrian team of surgeons successfully removed a toothpick from a young woman’s liver in a hospital in Damascus, local media reported.
The young woman told doctors at the hospital’s emergency room that she was suffering from fever and severe stomach pain. Following medical examinations, an X-ray and CT-scan revealed a foreign object in the woman’s liver that led to the build-up of an abscess causing fever and pain.
She was discharged from the hospital two days after the operation after her health condition improved.
