By: Olajide Toriola

A Vietnamese man experiencing pain in his abdomen underwent surgery to remove a pair of surgical scissors apparently left inside his body 18 years ago.

Ma Van Nhat, 54, underwent surgery Saturday at a hospital in Thai Nguyen Province after specialists from Viet Duc Hospital in Hanoi were summoned to assist with the procedure.

Nhat had undergone an ultrasound scan December 27 in an attempt to identify the cause of his abdominal pains and subsequent X-rays identified the cause as a pair of surgical scissors that had partially broken inside his body.
