A doctor, Ju Weiping has extracted a bottle cap from a patient's stomach using a male contraceptive during surgery.
Weiping who is the chief of gastroenterology at, Lianyungagn Hospital decided to use a contraceptive to wrap the bottle cap before moving it out of the man's stomach.
He said the latex contraceptive tool prevented the cap from scratching and damaging any organs as it was being removed.
The patient, identified by his surname, Liu had been drinking with friends when he ingested the cap of his beer.
Liu informed the medical staff on duty that he swallowed a bottle cap because he had been drinking too fast. Doctors later advised him to return to the hospital in the morning for the surgery when his stomach is empty.
