Legal marathon in the healthcare system...and still: Will Lauterbach’s revolution be cancelled?
Uwe Axel Richter, MD
The ongoing legal challenges in Germany’s healthcare system reflect doubts about whether Minister of Health Karl Lauterbach’s proposed reforms will materialise. Time is pressing for Lauterbach, notably for his hospital reform, which he considers the centrepiece of his agenda and ambitiously labels a “revolution”. However, federal-state constitutional dynamics might stifle these changes before they start, as states have ultimate control over hospital planning. The consensus among expert observers is that Lauterbach has less than two months to draft a bill that will convince all sides and turn a hyperactive Minister into a reformer.

In recent years, there have been enormous developments in implantology with regard to the digital workflow and materials, but also new insights into what can lead to failure or how to counteract peri-implant mucositis and, subsequently, peri-implantitis.2
