Nine patients with completely perforating intrauterine contraceptive devices are presented. In all cases, the device was removed by explorative laparotomy. In eight out of the nine women, the device was found to be embedded in the omentum or vesical peritoneal plica. The advantages of explorative laparotomy over laparoscopy or colpotomy are emphasized.
