implantation

 [im″plan-ta´shun]
1. the insertion of an organ or tissue in a new site in the body.
2. the attachment and embedding of the zygote (fertilized ovum) in the endometrium in pregnancy; called also nidation.
3. the insertion or grafting into the body of biological, living, inert, or radioactive material.

im·plan·ta·tion

(im'plan-tā'shŭn),
1. Attachment of the blastocyst to the endometrium, and its subsequent embedding in the compact layer, occurring 6-7 days after fertilization of the oocyte in humans.
See also: transplantation.
2. The process of placing a device or substance within the body, for example, placement of a saline-filled device beneath the breast mound.

3. Insertion of a natural tooth into an artificially constructed alveolus.

implantation

/im·plan·ta·tion/ (im″plan-ta´shun)
1. attachment of the blastocyst to the epithelial lining of the uterus, its penetration through the epithelium, and, in humans, its embedding in the stratum compactum of the endometrium, occurring six or seven days after fertilization of the oocyte.
2. the insertion of an organ or tissue in a new site in the body.
3. the insertion or grafting into the body of biological, living, inert, or radioactive material.

implantation

(ĭm′plăn-tā′shən)
n.
1.
a. The act or an instance of implanting.
b. The condition of being implanted.
2. Embryology The process by which a fertilized egg implants in the uterine lining.

implantation

(in embryology) the process involving the attachment, penetration, and embedding of the blastocyst in the lining of the uterine wall during the early stages of prenatal development. It may be artificial or natural. Kinds of implantation include eccentric implantation, interstitial implantation, and superficial implantation. Also called nidation.

3. the insertion or grafting into the body of biological, living, inert or radioactive material. Includes the planting of needles, staples or beads for prolonged stimulation of acupuncture points for a long term effect.

attachment of the trophoblast to the uterine lining. The form of attachment varies widely from superficial apposition to varying degrees of endometrial invasion.

Patient discussion about implantation

Q. Does anyone know if its possible to get breast implants if i have an implanted defibrillator? I have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. I'm 27 and in great health, I workout 6 days a week and I have no further symptoms.

A. Thanks for your help. In fact I have an appointment with my cardiologist in a couple of weeks and if he says its OOK I will definitely consult it with the plastic surgeon as well. However I always try to do some additional research on my own and get second opinions.
Ince again,
Thanks!

Q. Do any of you with FM have silicone breast implants, or have you ever had them? How about saline? My silicone implants expired on the surgeon's shelf before they went in my body. Both implants ruptured and disintegrated within 5 years of implantation. I was diagnosed with FM shortly after 2 surgeries to remove silicone goo. Just wondering if anyone else has made the connection. Thank you!

A. As far as I know several studies failed to prove there is a connection between rupture of breast implants and fibromyalgia, as did the FDA conclude. Indeed I heard about one study that found this connection, but it seemed like a very problematic one.

Q. I have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and an ICD. Is it possible to get breast implants with an ICD? I have no further symptoms: I workout and run 6 days a week, in good shape and only 27 years old.

A. Some medical equipment can damage your ICD If you are visiting your doctor , tell him or her that you have an ICD BEFORE they do any testing or treatment.i'm pretty sure they'll find a creative way to do the implant.any way- before doing any procedure- ask the cardiologist that handles you about it.
