Improperly placed Norplant implants pose a risk to neurovascular structures at the time of removal. Appropriate attention to insertion and removal should minimize the chance of injury. However, when injuries do occur, a logical and systematic approach to evaluation of the injury can help predict the outcome and establish a plan of care for the patient.
