Localization and Removal of Deeply Placed Contraceptive Implants

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.
