Abstract

A paired-rod, subdermal, implant system (JadelleR) is one of the popular methods of long term reversible contraceptive methods in Sri Lanka. The longer duration of action, low failure rate and comfort of the implant greatly outweigh the inconvenience of a minor surgical insertion and removal procedure. Even though the insertion is usually simple, minor, quick and safe, the removal sometimes is difficult and may require surgical intervention under anaesthesia.

 

This article describes the background information on impalpable implants and the technique of their removal.
