    Patients at UCSF used to routinely get their explants. Now, however, I think that the UCSF Risk Management group is no longer allowing Path to release explants. Let me know if you're successful.

    I agree. Playing that game is a waste of time. One could, after all, had a worse outcome instead of a better one. There's no way to ever know.
