Argon beam coagulator electrode tip mimicking a metallic foreign body.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Our purpose is to describe the appearance of an argon beam coagulator electrode tip that may become fractured and detached during surgery. CONCLUSION Knowledge of the potential for fracture and detachment and recognition of the characteristic radiographic appearance of the argon beam coagulator electrode tip allows radiographic identification of this metallic foreign body.
