There is infection when the region is not kept clean (Fig.9 (2.5 years post mesh removal)).  The other 1-piece implant should have minor implant exposure (<).  It appears that there is no thread exposure associated with the immediate implant at #28.  Using smaller 1-piece implants (2.5 or 2.0 vs. 3 mm) with flap surgery should be able to prevent the complication.
