Abstract

We investigated whether a "yearly" histrelin implant would provide pubertal suppression when left in place for 2 years. Equivalent suppression was observed when comparing 12 and 24 months in 33 children with central precocious puberty. A single implant for 2 years reduces cost and number of implant procedures.
