American Journal of Surgery
M B MayorS A Brown


Allergy to metal implants is under study at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center using in vitro examination of white blood cell migration. Retrospective data from 121 patients confirm that allergic responses do occur. Prospective data are being gathered to investigate the incidence, prevalence and relation to morbidity.
