Silicone breast implants chronic

Friedman Or, Zaretski Arik
We present a case of a silicone breast implant rupture after insertion of an automatic implantable cardioverter defibrillator (AICD). A 51-year-old woman presented to our plastic surgery clinic to exchange her silicone breast implants. The patient underwent cosmetic mastopexy and breast augmentation in 2008. Because of recurrent myocardial infarctions and chronic heart failure, she underwent an insertion of an AICD in 2014 in which the left breast implant was hit. In this report, we discuss the first case of an AICD insertion, disrupting a breast implant...

The Nurses' Health Study, a cohort of 121 701 female registered nurses, was established in 1976 to prospectively address the relationship between the use of oral contraceptives and the risk of breast cancer. Through follow-up questionnaires every 2 years, exposures have been updated and new exposure assessments added. Repeated measures have allowed a broad range of analyses, including change measures and risk according to time since exposure. Responding to emerging public health issues and accessing new measures (such as exposure to silicone implants, air pollution and the built environment) has allowed investigators to address an evolving spectrum of topics...

Pleural effusions are one of the rarest complications reported in patients with silicone gel filled breast implants. The silicone implants have potential to provoke chronic inflammation of pleura and subsequent pulmonary complications such as pleural effusion. Herein, we report a 44-year-old female who presented with left sided pleural effusion, six weeks after a silicone breast implantation surgery. The most common infectious, inflammatory, and malignant causes of pleural effusion were excluded with pleural fluid cytology and cultures...

Systemic anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is a distinct disease classification provisionally sub-divided into ALCL, Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK)(+) and ALCL, ALK(-) entities. More recently, another category of ALCL has been increasingly reported in the literature and is associated with the presence of breast implants. A comprehensive review of the 71 reported cases of breast implant associated ALCL (iALCL) is presented indicating the apparent risk factors and main characteristics of this rare cancer...

A 39-year-old female patient was admitted to explore chronic renal failure. Clinical history included silicone breast implants. Clinical examination was normal. Urinalysis revealed tubular proteinuria with Bence-Jones κ protein. Monoclonal immunoglobulin G κ and free monoclonal κ-light chains (LCs) were revealed by serum protein immunoelectrophoresis. Bone marrow aspiration with karyotype analysis and skeletal radiologic survey were normal. Kidney biopsy revealed a peculiar pattern of proximal tubular cells with hypertrophy and clarification initially diagnosed as an osmotic nephrosis...

BACKGROUND: Acellular dermal matrices present a new alternative to supporting expanders and implants for breast reconstruction in breast cancer patients following mastectomy. However, some studies have suggested that acellular dermal matrix may increase the complication rates in certain clinical settings. DermACELL acellular dermal matrix offers advanced processing in order to attempt to decrease bio-intolerance and complications. METHODS: Ten consecutive patients that presented for breast reconstruction and were candidates for tissue expanders underwent the procedure with the use of an acellular dermal matrix...

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a chronic multisystem autoimmune disorder characterised by progressive functional and structural abnormalities in blood vessels leading to microvascular dysfunction, excessive production and deposition of collagen leading to the fibrosis of skin and internal organs. The aetiology of the disease is unknown. However, exposure to various environmental factors, such as polyvinyl chloride and silica have been thought to play a role in the development of the disease. For this reason, silicone breast implants have been postulated as a cause for a range of autoimmune diseases including systemic sclerosis...

The presence of silicon-containing compounds in the capsules of women undergoing secondary surgical procedures has been identified by energy dispersion X-ray analysis. The birefringence and surface configuration qualities have been examined by polarized light-microscopic and electron-microscopic methods. The data indicate that silicone polymer (polydimethyl siloxane) is present both within cells and in the intercellular matrix of the capsule; the source of this material is the silicone gel-filled implant. A histiocytic and foreign-body giant-cell response was found to be associated with the silicon-containing compounds...

NONE DECLARED Breast implants are medical devices that are used to augment breast size or to reconstruct the breast following mastectomy or to correct a congenital abnormality. Breast implants consist of a silicone outer shell and a filler (most commonly silicone gel or saline). Approximately 5 to 10 million women worldwide have breast implants. Histomorphometric study to evaluate the biological tissue compatibility of silicone implants suitable for plastic surgery and the adverse effects and risks of this material...

Implants from Poly Implant Prothése (PIP), the French manufacturer, showed increased risk of implant rupture and silicone leakage through the shell. Concerns also exist about the potential irritant behavior of silicone gel filler in these implants. This report presents the clinical, histologic, and microbiologic characteristics of a capsule and a siliconoma from a patient with a ruptured PIP implant. A 41-year-old woman submitted to breast augmentation in 2005 with PIP silicone gel implants presented with a recent history of progressive asymmetric breast enlargement and an enlarged lymph node on her right axilla...

Breast implant associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) is a recently recognized clinical entity, with only 39 well-documented cases reported worldwide, including 3 fatalities. Because of its rarity, the clinical and pathologic features of this malignancy have yet to be fully defined. Moreover, the pathogenesis of ALCL in association with textured silicone gel breast implants is poorly understood. Here we report a case of BIA-ALCL arising in a 67-year-old woman with a mastectomy due to breast cancer followed by implantation of textured silicone gel breast prosthesis...

OBJECTIVE: Anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is a rare form of non-Hodgkin T-cell lymphoma potentially associated with silicone-shelled breast implants. The low incidence of ALCL has prevented establishment of causality. Many implantable devices are constructed with biomaterials similar to those used in breast prostheses. The purpose of this paper is to identify reports of ALCL in association with other types of implantable devices. METHODS: A literature review was conducted using PubMed to identify reports of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in association with various implantable devices...

We report the case of a patient who developed sarcoid granulomas 11 months after starting treatment with pegylated interferon alfa and ribavirin for chronic hepatitis C. The sites of the lesions were related to 3 different foreign bodies: silica in old scars on the skin, hyaluronic acid that had been injected into facial tissues, and silicone in an axillary lymph node draining the area of a breast implant. Systemic sarcoidosis was diagnosed on the basis of a history of dry cough and fever and blood tests that revealed elevated angiotensin converting enzyme and liver enzymes...

Sick building syndrome (SBS) is a term coined for a set of clinically recognizable symptoms and ailments without a clear cause reported by occupants of a building. In the 1990s the term "functional somatic syndromes" was applied to several syndromes, including SBS, multiple chemical sensitivity, repetition stress injury, the side effects of silicone breast implants, the Gulf War syndrome (GWS), chronic fatigue syndrome, the irritable bowel syndrome, and fibromyalgia. Recently, Shoenfeld and Agmon-Levin suggested that four conditions--siliconosis, macrophagic myofascitis, the GWS, and post-vaccination phenomena--which share clinical and pathogenic resemblances, may be included under a common syndrome entitled the "autoimmune (auto-inflammatory) syndrome induced by adjuvants"...

BACKGROUND: Silicone gel breast implants are associated with long-term adverse events, including capsular contracture, with reported incidence rates as high as 50 percent. However, it is not clear how long the follow-up period should be and whether there is any association with estrogen or menopausal status. In addition, the placement of Baker grade II subjects in the majority of reports has been in data sets of controls instead of capsular contracture. METHODS: A retrospective medical study (1998 to 2004) was performed in women (n = 157) who received textured silicone breast implants for aesthetic or reconstructive procedures at the Hospital of S...

Late unilateral breast enlargement after the insertion of silicone gel breast implants is a very rare phenomenon. The present study reports five women who presented with this finding over the past 20 years. Three of these patients presented with late unilateral hematomas, which developed nine, 12 and 14 years, respectively, after initial breast augmentation, in the absence of any known trauma. These patients presented for treatment one, four and 12 months, respectively, after their breast enlargements initially appeared...

A 73-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital to evaluate mediastinal lymphadenopathy found on a chest CT scan. She had undergone mammoplasty with silicone augmentation 50 years previously and had the implants removed 5 years previously. Biopsied specimens of a mediastinal lymph node under video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) revealed multiple hyalinized non-caseating epithelioid cell granulomas and multinucleated giant cells and foamy macrophages containing some vacuoles. According to these clinicopathological findings, we diagnosed human adjuvant disease which developed after mammoplasty with silicone augmentation...

The development of squamous metaplasia or carcinoma is a rare occurrence in the setting of a ruptured or leaking silicone breast implant capsule. However, the oncogenic process in such a context is yet another intriguing example of how chronic inflammation plays an integral role in the tumorigenic process. Recent papers have shed light on how inflammation involving M2-tpe macrophages, lymphocytes, and other inflammatory cells at first provide the cytokines necessary to fend off an inciting foreign-body attack such as silicone from a ruptured or leaking implant...
