Implanon is alleged to migrate and become lost. Zoll & Kranz is investigating potential claims.
What is Implanon?
Implanon is a form of birth control (implant) that is put into the arm. The Implanon releases a hormone to prevent pregnancy.
Implanon Lost After Migration
Implanon, however, may migrate and become lost. Generally, the removal process is 5 minutes. However, in some cases the implant cannot be found all together. Failure to remove the implant may result in continued effects of etonegestel, such as compromised fertility, extopic pregnany, or persistence or occurent of a drug-related adverse event and cannot be removed.
Implanon compared to Nexplanon
Implanon was first approved by the FDA in the U.S. in 2006 and was only on the market for 3 years. Implanon is no longer used or marketed in the United States. Instead of using Implanon the manufacture, Merck & Co. released Nexplanon. Nexplanon has barium in the rod so the location can be found via X-ray, CT-scan, ultrasound, or MRI. The original Implanon did not use barium, increasing the risk of a lost implant.
