Abstract

A 54-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital due to epigastric pain. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and X-ray examination revealed a giant gastric ulcer at the gastric angle and a gold floating bezoar measuring 11×6cm in size. We treated the bezoar endoscopically with mechanical bascket lithotripter. Because the bezoar was huge and hard, first challenge for crushing the bezoar transformed mechanical bascket lithotripter and it was failed. However, heating and extending transformed mechanical bascket lithotripter enabled us to crush the bezoar successfully. Even if a bezoar is big, our method of crushing the bezoar was simpler and cheaper than others in past reports.
