AbstractThe timing of diagnosis since the injury was important for the
decision-making. Foreign bodies in the heart which has been diagnosed
early, should be treated surgically, regardless of the presence of
symptoms, to reduce further myocardial damage. We timely diagnosed this

computerized tomography and echocardiography. The metallic foreign body
was successfully removed in time, avoiding serious complications.
