Abstract Share this page

Intrapelvic migration of a Kirschner wire, used in the treatment of hip fracture, is rare. We report a case of intrapelvic migration of a Kirschner wire 10 years after its placement. Even though the patient was asymptomatic, we proceeded to remove the migrated wire using laparoscopic techniques. Given the increasing number of hip operations being performed, and given that intrapelvic foreign bodies can result in serious or fatal complications, it is important to keep this problem in mind in patients who have had previous hip surgery.
