Complete implant coverage by pectoralis major muscle in immediate breast reconstruction prevents implant exposure but restricts implant volume, increases the risk of a high-riding implant, and prevent...
Acellular dermal matrix has proven to be a useful adjunct in tissue expander or direct-to-implant breast reconstruction. Although versatile, acellular dermal matrix adds considerable cost. Vicryl (pol...
While autologous breast reconstruction was considered the procedure of choice for immediate breast reconstruction, there has been a shift towards implant-based breast reconstruction (IBBR) in recent y...
During breast reconstruction using the transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) flap, the use of mesh for abdominal donor-site closure provides for a technology that potentially offers clinical...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if the complication rate and post-surgical appearance differ based on what type of mesh is used for breast reconstruction surgery.
The goal of this clinical research study is to evaluate a new two-stage approach (delayed-immediate reconstruction) to breast reconstruction in women who may require post-mastectomy radiat...
This prospective, multicenter, open-label study will assess the clinical outcomes of the LTM product in three planned analyses. The primary objective of this study is to prospectively as...
Hypothesis: TIGR mesh as a reconstruction material is a more effective mesh for the repair of the abdominal wall post Lipectomy, transverse rectus abdominus myocutaneous (TRAM) / deep infe...
Prospective, single center, postmarket clinical study to obtain clinical experience with the use of SERI® Surgical Scaffold for soft tissue support and repair in breast reconstruction.
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Any woven or knit material of open texture used in surgery for the repair, reconstruction, or substitution of tissue. The mesh is usually a synthetic fabric made of various polymers. It is occasionally made of metal.
Surgical reconstruction of the breast including both augmentation and reduction.
A fluid-filled closed cavity or sac that is lined by an EPITHELIUM and found in the BREAST. It may appear as a single large cyst in one breast, multifocal, or bilateral in FIBROCYSTIC BREAST DISEASE.
A common and benign breast disease characterized by varying degree of fibrocystic changes in the breast tissue. There are three major patterns of morphological changes, including FIBROSIS, formation of CYSTS, and proliferation of glandular tissue (adenosis). The fibrocystic breast has a dense irregular, lumpy, bumpy consistency.
Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.
