  • Sale
  • Regular price $140.00


The Implant Metals Profile tests the circulating blood levels of the six metals that are most commonly associated with orthopedic and dental metal prostheses or implants. The metal debris may be associated with excessive physical wear or corrosion of the metal alloys. The greatest release of the metals occurs when prostheses entail metal-on-metal (M/M) bearing surfaces. Many studies have shown that the released metal debris may be associated with localized tissue damage to bone and soft tissue, sensitivity reactions, and remote adverse effects on normal physiological and biochemical functions. The reported blood metal levels should not be solely used to make conclusions regarding the integrity of metals prosthesis devices.
