ULAN-UDE, December 25. /TASS/. Doctors in the Buryatia region, in southern Siberia, were utterly astonished, when they had to remove more than 152 metal items from the stomach of a 74-year old patient, a spokesman for a local clinic said on Monday.

"Long nails, bolts, screws, iron rods up to 15 centimeters long and even a silver chain were found in the woman’s stomach," the spokesman said. "Surgeons removed a total of 152 items, which had already started oxidizing."

The medics did not specify how these items had gotten into the woman’s stomach for confidentiality reasons.
