BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE: The majority of studies assessing the rupture rate of breast implants were performed by the breast implant manufacturing industry with questionable independence. After repetitive removals of ruptured implants from the same model, our team decided to assess the rupture rate and the estimated risk thereof for most of the silicone gel-filled implants we have used since they regained market approval in France in 2001. METHODS: Our study is a retrospective cohort of 809 patients operated in our University Hospital from 2001 to 2013 for cosmetic or reconstructive goals...

BACKGROUND: Satisfaction is an important outcome variable in surgical success. The purpose of this study is to evaluate predictors of satisfaction in women submitted to silicone textured breast implant surgery. METHODS: A retrospective evaluation of women receiving textured silicone breast implants was performed. Patients were divided in four groups: cosmetic cohort (n = 104), reconstructive cohort (n = 120), general population control cohort (n = 120) and aesthetic control cohort (n = 54)...

BACKGROUND: The treatment of breast cancer has developed a lot during the last decade, nevertheless it still remains a considerable social and economical problem all over the world. The choice of the surgical procedure depends on a patients protocol and the surgeons preferences. The aim of this study is to evaluate the stress on the scar after breast reconstruction. METHODS: Mathematical modeling of the sutured skin flap used for breast implant placement was divided into the following two steps...

BACKGROUND: Extra full projection implants are used in a select group of aesthetic breast surgery patients. Their use is selective enough that they have not been included in long term manufacturer studies and the indications for their use have attracted much debate. Only a handful of studies have reported the outcomes from implantation of these devices. OBJECTIVES: We review our experience of using extra full projection anatomically shaped macrotextured silicone gel implants discussing our rationale, indications, and results...

Eric Swanson
BACKGROUND: The prevailing theory for capsular contracture after breast augmentation is a subclinical capsular infection. A capsulectomy, site change, and implant replacement are recommended. An open capsulotomy leaves the capsule in the patient. Theoretically, such a procedure would be ineffective because it does not remove the infected tissue. Recurrences occurred frequently in women treated in the 1970s when leaky silicone gel implants were in use. Open capsulotomy has not been studied in women implanted with third-generation devices...

Siliconoma from ruptured breast implants has been reported in multiple body sites, including but not limited to the breast parenchyma, axillary lymph nodes, upper arm, and even lower leg. In this regard, we report a rare case of distant silicone migration to the lower extremities after traumatic breast implant rupture. A 55-year-old Asian woman who received bilateral augmentation mammoplasty 20 years ago presented with ruptured breast implants from a car accident 2 years earlier. Magnetic resonance imaging confirmed intracapsular and extracapsular rupture of the right breast implant, showing "linguine sign...

PURPOSE: The positive predictive power for malignancy can potentially be improved, if the chemical compositions of suspicious breast lesions can be reliably measured in screening mammography. The purpose of this study is to investigate the feasibility of quantifying breast lesion composition, in terms of water and lipid contents, with spectral mammography. METHODS: Phantom and tissue samples were imaged with a spectral mammography system based on silicon-strip photon-counting detectors...

BACKGROUND: High mammographic density (HMD) not only confers a significantly increased risk of breast cancer (BC) but also is associated with BCs of more advanced stages. However, it is unclear whether BC progression and metastasis are stimulated by HMD. We investigated whether patient-derived HMD breast tissue could stimulate the progression of MCF10DCIS.com cells compared with patient-matched low mammographic density (LMD) tissue. METHODS: Sterile breast specimens were obtained immediately after prophylactic mastectomy from high-risk women (n = 10)...

BACKGROUND: Breast augmentation with fat transfer does not bear the risks associated with silicone implantation. The method can potentially be especially useful in Asian women, who often reject augmentation mammoplasty with implants. This prospective clinical trial evaluated the effects of external breast expansion on breast density and vessel count using magnetic resonance imaging. METHODS: Thirty-four enrolled patients were instructed to apply one of two devices, the conventional BRAVA device (used in the AESTES trial) or a novel external expansion device (EVERA) designed for Asian women, continuously for 8 h per day for 12 weeks...

INTRODUCTION: One-stage implant-based breast reconstruction using titanium-coated polypropylene mesh is a novel approach widely used in Europe. Complication rates in breast reconstruction with the use of titanium-coated meshes seem to be comparable to those in patients with implant-based breast reconstruction alone. However, the use of synthetic meshes in implant-based breast reconstructive surgery leads to new clinical scenarios with the need for the breast surgeon to face new complications...

Sjögren's syndrome, an autoimmune disease characterized by lymphocytic infiltration of the lacrimal and salivary glands, leads to dryness of the mouth and eyes. Herein, we present a case of Sjögren's syndrome that developed after silicone breast implantation. A cause-effect relationship between breast implantation and Sjögren's syndrome has not been established. However, the possibility of such an association should be considered when a patient with silicone implants is admitted to the hospital for treatment of Sjögren's syndrome...

BACKGROUND: First-generation polyurethane foam-coated breast implants were associated with a low risk of capsular contracture (CC), but the risk of CC with modern polyurethane-coated silicone implants has not been established. OBJECTIVES: The authors sought to determine the long-term rates of CC after primary breast augmentation with Microthane, a polyurethane-coated silicone gel implant. METHODS: A total of 131 patients (255 breasts) were evaluated in a retrospective study...

You are a new plastic surgeon in the community and you are referred a patient interested in breast reconstruction. The patient is a 35-year-old female school teacher who had a bilateral prophylactic mastectomy 2 years earlier, as she was a BRCA gene carrier. Since she is of a petite build with very little subcutaneous tissue or extra skin in the lower abdomen, you decide that she is not a suitable candidate for an abdomen-based autologous tissue reconstruction. You recommend the technique of tissue expansion and silicone gel implants...

This work demonstrates the application of commercially available stable surface composed of gold nanograins with diameters ranging from 70 to 226nm deposited onto silicon wafer for surface-enhanced Raman scattering investigations of biologically active compounds, such as bombesin (BN) and its fragments. BN is an important neurotransmitter involved in a complex signaling pathways and biological responses; for instance, hypertensive action, contractive on uterus, colon or ileum, locomotor activity, stimulation of gastric and insulin secretion as well as growth promotion of various tumor cell lines, including: lung, prostate, stomach, colon, and breast...

BACKGROUND: Polyacrylamide hydrogel (PAAG) was used in breast augmentation surgery in China during 1997-2006. Its application has led to increasing complications such as localized lumps, asymmetry, diffuse stiffness, infections, and localized tenderness or myalgia. Hence, many patients have sought for surgical gel evacuation in the following years. CASE PRESENTATION: A 37-year-old G2P0A2 slim (BMI = 18.3) woman who had received injected PAAG bilateral breast augmentation in China 15 years ago, visited our hospital for gel removal due to left upper quadrant breast tenderness with burning sensation...

BACKGROUND: Silicone implants have been successfully used for breast augmentation and reconstruction in millions of women worldwide. The reaction to the silicone implant is highly variable; it can lead to local inflammatory symptoms, and sometimes to systemic symptoms and disease. Over 80 cases of anaplastic lymphoma kinase-negative anaplastic large cell lymphoma have been reported in patients with silicone breast implants and have been accepted as a new clinical entity. To the best of our knowledge, an intravascular large B-cell lymphoma associated with a silicone breast implant has not been reported previously...

BACKGROUND: Negative news media reports regarding potential health hazards of implanted medical devices and pharmaceuticals can lead to a 'negative halo effect,' a phenomenon whereby judgments about a product or product type can be unconsciously altered even though the scientific support is tenuous. To determine how a 'negative halo effect' may impact the rates of use and/or explantation of medical products, we analyzed the occurrence of such an effect on three implanted medical devices and one drug: 1) intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUDs); 2) silicone gel-filled breast implants (SGBI); 3) metal-on-metal hip implants (MoM); and 4) the drug Tysabri...
