Two foreign bodies embedded in the intraventricular septum: A case report
A 23-year old male was presented at the outpatient clinic of our department reporting that he had been subjected to insertion of foreign bodies in his chest. Physical examination was unremarkable. Imaging studies revealed the presence of two bodies in the subcutaneous tissue of the anterior chest wall and two needle-shaped intramyocardial bodies that were impacted in the intraventricular septum. Due to late appearance, the position, and because of the absence of symptoms, it was decided that the patient should be managed conservatively. Today, five years after the incident, the patient remains asymptomatic and he is followed-up regularly.
