In Zelenograd, doctors performed a unique operation. Doctors of the Konchalovsky City Clinical Hospital took a foreign body from a man’s nose, which had been there for 50 years.

The patient addressed the doctors with breathing problems, which he felt in the right side of his nose. Experts conducted a computer tomogram and it turned out that there was a foreign body of a rounded shape in the man’s nose. The man had a deviated septum because of this.

After the CT scan, the man remembered that when he was six years old, he stuck a single-oven coin in his nose, but did not tell his mother about it. Then, he forgot about the problem.

The man had problems breathing, but the doctors associated it with the curvature of the nasal septum. A conglomerate emerged in the nose, which the medics call rhinolite. Doctors corrected the nasal septum, removed the part of the cartilage that was curved, and also took out a coin, reports Moscow24.

The man has already been discharged from the hospital, according to the press service of the medical institution. At the same time, Lord Elena Nepryakhina, who supervised the operation, said that the patient disobeyed the doctors and removed special tampons. They serve to preserve the structure in the nose, which is collected by surgeons.

It is not reported whether this caused problems for the patient in the future.

At the same time, the doctors said that the performed surgery saved the man from complications.
