The vantas was implanted in my left arm on July 28, 2010. I had an appointment on July 28, 2011 with the doctor who wanted to put another one in for another year. I chose not to continue with this approach. He did not say anything about removing it or side effects of keeping it in. I requested information about the product and received your brochure stating that after one year the hydrogel must be removed.

"In all clinical trials combined, an implant was not recovered in 8 patients. For two of these [see Clinical Studies (14)], serum
testosterone rose above castrate level and the implant was neither palpable nor visualized with ultrasound. These two implants were
believed to have been extruded without appreciation by the patients. In the other six, serum testosterone remained below the castrate
level, but the implant was not palpable. No further diagnostic tests were conducted. One of these patients underwent in-clinic
surgical exploration that did not locate the implant. "
