Delayed Removal

Many patients must be referred to surgical specialists for delayed removal of foreign bodies. It is important to inform the patient that the object is present but unlikely to cause harm before it is removed. The benefit of prophylactic antibiotics for uninfected wounds containing foreign bodies has not been studied.

If a foreign body is near a joint or highly mobile region, the affected area should be splinted prior to removal to prevent further injury or migration of the object.
