Doctor comes up with ingenious new use for a condom
A condom came in handy after a Chinese man accidentally swallowed a beer bottle cap – and a doctor used a rubber condom to safely extract it. The man, who was only identified by his surname Mr Liu, was out drinking with friends Friday night in the Jiangsu province on the east coast of China when he managed to ingest the bottle cap while drinking too fast, Chinese media reported.
Liu rushed himself to the ER of Lianyungang Hospital at around 10 p.m. and told medical staff his dilemma, South Morning China Post reported, citing the Yangzi Evening News. After Liu was given an X-ray, doctors told him to return to the hospital the next morning with his stomach empty. On Saturday morning, Dr. Ju Weiping, the chief of gastroenterology, decided to use a latex condom to wrap the bottle cap up in Liu’s stomach before removing it to avoid damaging Liu’s organs, according to the South Morning China Post. Weiping was trained as an electrical engineer and fitter before going to medical school in 1978 and said that he used skills he learned from his former job to extract the cap.
This is really a good use of rubber condom
