Complications of implantation of aesthetic foreign bodies depending on their chemical composition

O. V. Bondarenko



The study was aimed to assess the frequency of implantation of aesthetic foreign bodies depending on their chemical composition

There was demonstrated that 49.4% of patients with complications after auricular piercing have jewelry made of gold and silver, less commonly used titanium. The most common complications for patients wearing silver ear piercing ornaments are atheromas (12,9%), gold - infection (11,8%), for composite alloys – infection and perichondritis (8,6% each) and for titanium – ear laceration and other mechanical defects (7,6%)The highest risk of inflammatory complications was determined for the groups using gold earrings (375 millesimal finenesses) and stainless earrings.
