All patients with PJIs required explantation
of the infected hardware followed by antimicrobial spacer placement for [greater than or equal to] 3 months in addition to ongoing postoperative oral or intravenous antimicrobial therapy to achieve a successful outcome.
A potential explantation
for this is that ghrelin is predominantly released from P1/D1 cells in the upper stomach and fundus, a part of the GI tract which is unaffected by the EndoBarrier implant unlike in RYGB.
Now, two years from her initial explantation
, she continues to follow up monthly in our clinic and states that she is doing well.
In this study, we also used tissue explantation
and proteolytic enzyme digestion at 4 AdegC to isolate the epithelial cells.
Perhaps more importantly, IL-1[beta] and IL6 had the highest sensitivities as diagnostic tools (90% and 81%, resp.), and both also had the greatest decrease between explantation
and reimplantation demonstrating infection resolution (12.4-fold decrease for IL-1[beta]; 11.2-fold decrease for IL-6), implicating IL-1[beta] and IL-6 as potentially the most applicable for usage in diagnosis/prognosis of PJI.
Surgical sites that were "not clean" at the time of mesh explantation
were associated with a lack of cellular penetrance to the center of the mesh specimen, indicating less constructive remodeling .

As the patient improved clinically, explantation
from ECMO occurred 20 days postoperatively.
In case of implant fracture, there are two options: (1) complete removal of the implant fractured using explantation
drills and (2) the use of the fractured implant in order to place a new prosthesis .
In the United States in the 1990s, a group of major heart failure referral centers reportedly diagnosed GCM (via autopsy, endomyocardial biopsy, apical wedge resection, or cardiac explantation
) an average of once every 21 months.
