Abstract: The study compares NORPLANT(R) subdermal implants acceptors enrolled randomly for two different insertion procedures. One group (420 women) received the implants with the use of a scalpel according to the manufacturer's instructions. The other group (423 women) received the implant without an incision, directly through a sharpened trocar. The local signs and symptoms were observed at 7 and 30 days after insertion. Pain, tenderness, edema/swelling, ecchymosis and defective scar were considered. Complication rates were low and no significant differences were found between the two procedures. Based on the data of this study, we recommend inserting NORPLANT(R) implants without the use of a scalpel.
