Radiologists Diagnose and Treat Self-Embedding Disorder in Teens
Date:12/2/2008

e arms, ankles, feet, hands and neck. One patient had self-embedded 11 objects, including an unfolded metal paperclip more than six inches in length.

Ultrasound guidance allowed the researchers to detect the presence and location of wood, crayons and plastic objects, not detectable on x-ray examinations. Removal was performed through small incisions in the skin that left little or no scarring and was successful in all cases, without fragmentation or complications.

"This technique offers surgeons and emergency physicians a safe and effective alternative for removal of foreign bodies, including objects at risk for fragmentation during traditional operative techniques," said co-author Adam Young, B.S. "The small incision minimizes scarring and deformity, which is key for the self-esteem of this unique, high-risk group of patients."

Co-authors are James Murakami, M.D., Brian Coley, M.D., and Mark Hogan, M.D.

    AT A GLANCE

    -- Radiologists have begun using a minimally invasive, image-guided
       technique to detect and remove objects inserted by teens into their
       arms, hands, feet, ankles and necks.
    -- This is the first study to report on an emerging condition known as
       self-embedding disorder.
    -- Self-embedded objects removed included needles, staples, paper clips,
       wood, stone, glass, pencil lead and a crayon.
    -- Self-injury has been reported in 13 to 24 percent of high school
       students in the U.S. and Canada.
