This was confirmed by computed tomographic imaging. We describe a case of successful fish bone removal using a laparoscopic technique, thus avoiding a laparotomy. The patient recovered well and was discharged from the hospital the next day. This is the first description of such a case.||Source Title:||Surgical Laparoscopy and Endoscopy||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/133311||ISSN:||10517200||DOI:||10.1097/00019509-199906000-00016|
