18 years ago in a hospital in Vietnam, surgeons were able to remove the scissors that were left behind during an operation on a patient’s abdomen after more than three hours of struggle.
In 1998, Ma Van Nhat, who was seriously injured in a car accident, underwent abdominal surgery.
But nearly twenty years later, Van Nhat was admitted to the hospital because of stomach and abdominal pain. That’s how 15 cm long scissors left by an irresponsible surgeon were found near the large intestine.
In today’s highly developed social media, this incident attracted a lot of public attention, so law enforcement agencies started looking for the forgetful surgeon.
