Abstract We occasionally encounter patients with various types of rectal foreign bodies. When too large to grasp, transanal removal can be difficult. Here, we report a case of successful manual transanal removal of an 18 × 4 × 4 cm silicon rod without complications. A 50-year-old male came to the emergency department of our hospital 12 h after transanal insertion of a whole silicon rod. An abdominal examination showed no evidence of peritonitis, while X-ray and computed tomography findings revealed a large foreign body in the rectum, without any sign of perforation. Initially, we attempted removal using an endoscopy procedure with conventional endoscopic instruments, including a snare and grasp forceps, though we failed because of the large size. Next, we manually compressed the foreign body from the abdominal wall under endoscopic and X-ray fluoroscopic observation, and successfully removed it in a transanal manner without complications. Endoscopic and X-ray fluoroscopic assistance were helpful to guide the direction and angle of abdominal compression in this case.
