If your TEP prosthesis comes out by accident, it is very important to quickly take specific steps.  Please read this document for step-by-step instructions.  Without your prosthesis in place, your puncture may close.  Food, liquid and saliva can enter your lungs from your TEP if your prosthesis is not in place.

Please watch the below video about what to do if your TEP prosthesis comes out.  This video was produced by the Moffitt Cancer Center.
