MSD Letter Change to Nexplanon® Site

FREE WEBINAR: Join Dr Anne Connolly, Dr Caroline Cooper and nurse practitioner Tracey Elliot for an online masterclass on Nexplanon on 25th March 2020. The free masterclass is for all primary care clinicians including the updated fitting procedure.

Cases of neurovascular injury and migration of the implant from the insertion site within the arm or in rare cases into the pulmonary artery have been reported and may be related to deep or incorrect insertion of Nexplanon. To further minimise the risk of neurovascular injury and implant migration the instructions on insertion and removal of the implant have been updated.
