Abstract

Malignant colorectal obstruction is a serious complication of advanced cancers. The obstruction can be caused by colorectal cancer, adjacent organ cancer or distant metastases. Rectal metastases from gastric cancer are rare. Foreign body ingestion is not a rare event and the majority of them causes no symptoms or complications. Nevertheless, they are likely to stop at any narrowing or angulation of the intestinal lumen. The authors describe a rare clinical presentation of an impacted foreign body in a pathological narrowing secondary to rectal metastasis of a gastric neoplasia that caused an acute malignant colonic obstruction. After endoscopic removal of the foreign body, there was complete resolution of symptoms avoiding surgery or palliative stenting. This case report highlights the need of careful inspection of colonic malignant strictures before stenting to exclude other causes of colonic obstructions, as an impacted foreign body.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 28 March 2018.
All research outputs
#7,975,340
of 12,719,839 outputs
Outputs from GE-Portuguese Journal of Gastroenterology
#3
of 12 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#161,790
of 273,017 outputs
Outputs of similar age from GE-Portuguese Journal of Gastroenterology
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,719,839 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 12 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.6. This one scored the same or higher as 9 of them.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 273,017 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 31st percentile – i.e., 31% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
