In revision surgery, safe and effective implant removal is vital. Whilst removing the implant, extensive unnecessary bone loss, excessive surgery time especially in one stage revision, or damage to essential tissue such as extensor mechanism can have adverse effects in the reconstructive phase of surgery and final outcome. Therefore, a systematic approach to implant removal is imperative, before and throughout any revision surgery.
