Name: Plastic and reconstructive surgery
Implant-related deformities in aesthetic rhinoplasty are a major problem for rhinoplasty surgeons. Capsular contracture is believed to be the pathological cause of delayed contour deformities, compara...
Silicone implants are biomaterials that are frequently used in the medical industry due to their physiological inertness and low toxicity. However, capsular contracture remains a concern in long-term ...
Breast reconstruction with implants can be complicated by symptomatic capsular contracture, especially after radiotherapy. A phase I, nonrandomized clinical trial demonstrated improvement in capsular ...
Breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma is a malignancy of T lymphocytes that is associated with the use of textured breast implants in both esthetic and reconstructive surgeries. Pat...
The IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant is a dual lumen saline-filled implant with capsular contracture and deflation/rupture rates much lower than single-lumen silicone gel-filled implants. To be...
The study investigates the safety and performance of Silimed® silicone gel breast implants with a textured surface and Silimed® silicone gel breast implants with polyurethane coated surf...
Purpose: The purpose of this investigation is to test the safety and effectiveness of the Aspen System™ and Aspen Rehabilitation Technique. The device is intended for the therapeutic tre...
Rationale: Bacterial biofilms are defined as an assemblage of bacterial cells enclosed in a self-produced glycocalyx matrix. Adherence on surfaces, and resistance to both antibiotic treatm...
Safety and effectiveness of Natrelle™ Cohesive Round Silicone-Filled Breast Implants in women undergoing primary reconstruction or revision of existing breast implants.
This study willbe used to collect short-term (5 year) data about possible health problems associated with silicone gel implants. This data will be used to help see if the implants are both...
Implants used to reconstruct and/or cosmetically enhance the female breast. They have an outer shell or envelope of silicone elastomer and are filled with either saline or silicone gel. The outer shell may be either smooth or textured.
The shrinkage of the foreign body encapsulation scar tissue that forms around artificial implants imbedded in body tissues.
Synthetic organosiloxane gels that are formed from synthetic polymers of silicone oxide with organic sidechains (polydimethylsiloxane) by lengthening the polymer chains. Unlike silicone elastomers, they are not treated with amorphous silica. They are used as fillers in breast implants.
Encrustations, formed from microbes (bacteria, algae, fungi, plankton, or protozoa) embedding in extracellular polymers, that adhere to surfaces such as teeth (DENTAL DEPOSITS); PROSTHESES AND IMPLANTS; and catheters. Biofilms are prevented from forming by treating surfaces with DENTIFRICES; DISINFECTANTS; ANTI-INFECTIVE AGENTS; and antifouling agents.
Polymers of silicone that are formed by crosslinking and treatment with amorphous silica to increase strength. They have properties similar to vulcanized natural rubber, in that they stretch under tension, retract rapidly, and fully recover to their original dimensions upon release. They are used in the encapsulation of surgical membranes and implants.
