Brazilian surgeons accidentally left surgical scissors in their patient after they completed the operation.

The patient was local politician in Brazil. On January 20th, Cleyton Jose Zanatta, who is a city councilman for Nova Santa Helena municipality in Mato Grosso, went in to have a tumor removed from his intestines. The tumor was successfully removed but six days later, the politician started feeling sick. He went back to the hospital and the CT scan showed a large pair of surgical scissors in his intestines! The surgeons who operated on him left them in and just closed him up!

The doctors immediately removed the surgical scissors from his intestines. Cleyton recovered from the surgical mishap and is in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery!

Sadly this is something that is more common than we think! Back in September, gauze used in her procedure removed, 20 years after the fact!

And New York medics had left a ten inch breathing tube in a mans body. It was only discovered three decades later!

Cleyton said in an interview, “I just feel like … a little angry. Just for the simple fact that they left this inside of me,” the former patient, Rene Remache, 39, told The Post. “It could have been worse than what the outcome was. I thank God I am still here. I have a beautiful daughter that I might not have been raising.”
