Localization and Removal of Deeply Placed Contraceptive Implants

From: Jhpiego

Localization and Removal of Deeply Placed Contraceptive Implants

This video was developed to build capacity of clinicians providing contraceptive implant services for locating and safely removing a non-palpable implant in an outpatient clinic or low-resource setting. This video is intended for clinicians who provide implant services to be able to locate and perform a difficult removal of a deeply placed implant as well as sonographers and other healthcare providers who participate in localizing deep implants. Specifically, non-palpable implants can be localized through ultrasound using probes commonly found in an obstetrics and gynecology clinic setting. Clinicians working in outpatient or low-resource settings can utilize these localization and removal techniques to safely and successfully remove deeply placed implants.
