Management of the compromised clinical situation; failing implants and implant components

    As more and more of our patients are treated with implants we need to be increasingly familiar with the problems which may present over the life-span of the entire reconstruction. For those patients who suffer implant or component failure, the consequences may be catastrophic if the situation is not carefully and predictably managed.

    With the aid of presentation, demonstration, and hands-on elements, this workshop will examine strategies for coping conservatively with failure, including a consideration of the initial surgical and prosthetic plan, the potential for re-treatment, implant salvage and component retrieval, and the various technical solutions that may help you to successfully rescue a failing or compromised reconstruction.
