Implant Rejection

From BME Encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

In rare cases, implants put enough pressure on the skin above them, or have done enough damage to surrounding tissue, that the skin above the implant dies, and the implant becomes exposed (and is lost).

Once this process begins, there's not much that can be done about it other than removing the implant.
