Case Report: Breast Seroma Mimicking Breast Implants.

Introduction Breast seroma may be caused by a variety of factors including lymphatic disruption, continuous inflammation and foreign bodies such as breast implants. In cases of breast implants associated seroma the diagnosis of Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL) should be investigated. Presentation of Case A 45-year-old Caucasian woman was referred with bilateral swelling of the breasts causing tension and pain. MRI showed accumulations compatible with bilateral silicone implants. Ultrasound-guided aspir...

Macrotextured Breast Implants with Defined Steps to Minimize Bacterial Contamination around the Device: Experience in 42,000 Implants.

Bacteria/biofilm on breast implant surfaces has been implicated in capsular contracture and breast implant-associated anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (ALCL). Macrotextured breast implants have been shown to harbor more bacteria than smooth or microtextured implants. Recent reports also suggest that macrotextured implants are associated with a significantly higher incidence of breast implant-associated ALCL. Using techniques to reduce the number of bacteria around implants, specifically, the 14-point plan, ha...

Permeability of expander breast implants: In vitro and in vivo analyses.

The biocompatibility of the polysiloxane breast implant has been studied moderately. The aging of these implants due to lipid penetration and the release of polymerization impurities, such as Platine or octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane (named D4), has already been documented. Since these studies, manufacturing procedures have been improved; thus, the security of breast implants has also improved. Although polymerization and the choice of monomer influence the shell properties, few studies have compared these to...

What can we learn from sonication results of breast implants?

Different research groups have identified microorganisms on breast implants by sonication with significant correlation to the rate of capsular contracture. This substantiated the hypothesis of an infectious etiology of capsular contracture. However, no clinical consequence has been drawn from these results yet. Aim of this study was to review sonication results from breast implants and to evaluate the current preoperative antibiotic regime for breast-implant surgery.

Breast magnetic resonance imaging: tips for the diagnosis of silicone-induced granuloma of a breast implant capsule (SIGBIC).

Complications resulting from the placement of silicone breast implants are becoming more frequent in our clinical practice. This is due to the increase in breast aesthetic surgeries at the beginning of the century, where breast augmentation using silicone implants was the main intervention performed. Generally, studies that discuss the complications of breast implants are restricted to reports of intra- or extra-capsular ruptures, contractures and haematomas. Currently, much importance has been given to ana...

Poly Implants Prosthèse Breast Implants: A Case Series and Review of the Literature.

Silicone breast implants from the French manufacturer Poly Implants Prosthèse (PIP) were recalled from the European market after the French regulator has revealed the implants contain non-medical-grade silicone filler. In December 2011, following a large increase in reported rupture rate and a possible cancer risk, the French Ministry of Health recommended consideration of the PIP explantation, regardless of their condition. In 2012, the Israel Ministry of Health recommended to replace the implants only up...

Do textured breast implants decrease the rate of capsular contracture compared to smooth implants?

The use of breast implants for aesthetic and reconstructive purposes has become one of the most common procedures performed by plastic surgeons. Several breast implants models exist. They differ in their size, filling, shape and characteristic of the shell, which can be smooth or textured. Capsular contracture is one of the main complications of breast implants. It has been suggested that the use of textured implants could reduce the incidence of capsular contracture. To answer this question, we used Episte...

Microbial Evaluation in Capsular Contracture of Breast Implants.

Capsular contracture around breast implants is a severe and unpredictable complication experienced by up to 50 percent of patients after breast augmentation and reconstruction, and represents a major cause leading to reoperation. Several lines of evidence point to the involvement of subclinical infections and of bacterial biofilm formation.

Enhancing surface properties of breast implants by using electrospun silk fibroin.

In the present study, a new electrospun silk fibroin coating of silicone breast implants with improved biocompatibility and mechanical properties was obtained. Fibrous scaffolds were produced by electrospinning a solution containing silk fibroin, derived from Bombyx mori cocoons, and polyethylene oxide (PEO) to be used as a coating of breast implants. A randomly oriented structure of fibroin/PEO was electrospun on implants as assessed by SEM analysis, roughness measurements and ATR-FTIR spectroscopy. The sc...

Five-Year Safety Data for More than 55,000 Subjects following Breast Implantation: Comparison of Rare Adverse Event Rates with Silicone Implants versus National Norms and Saline Implants.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has required postapproval studies of silicone breast implants to evaluate the incidence of rare adverse events over 10 years after implantation.

Bacteriophages as an Alternative to Conventional Antibiotic use for the Prevention or Treatment of Paenibacillus larvae in Honeybee Hives.

American Foulbrood (AFB) is an infectious disease caused by the bacteria, Paenibacillus larvae. P. larvae phages were isolated and tested to determine each phages' host range amongst 59 field isolate strains of P. larvae. Three phages were selected to create a phage cocktail for the treatment of AFB infections according to the combined phages' ability to lyse all tested strains of bacteria. Studies were performed to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of the phage cocktail treatment as a replacement for tra...

Nail Histology Processing Techniques: What is happening around the world.

In this issue of the Journal of Cutaneous Pathology[1], Wlodek et al present data from an international survey of members of the Council for Nail disorders and the European Nail Society regarding nail histology processing techniques. This is an important contribution to the nail pathology literature as few existing publications address the topics investigated by the survey.

Nail Involvement in Alopecia Areata: A Questionnaire-Based Survey of Impact on Quality of Life and Review of the Literature.

Alopecia areata (AA) is an immune-mediated disease causing temporary or permanent hair loss. Up to 46% of patients with AA also have nail involvement. The aim of this study was to determine the presence, types, and clinical implications of nail changes in patients with AA. This questionnaire-based survey evaluated 256 patients with AA. General demographic variables, specific nail changes, nail-related quality of life (QoL), and treatment history and need were evaluated. Prevalence of nail involvement in AA ...

CD13 is a marker for onychofibroblasts within nail matrix onychodermis: comparison of its expression patterns in the nail unit and in the hair follicle.

We previously demonstrated the presence of onychodermis, a specialized mesenchymal cell population beneath the the nail matrix and proximal nail bed demonstrating CD10 expression. We hypothesize that the onychodermis could be the nail analog of the follicular dermal papilla, which is known to express CD13. We compare CD13 expression patterns between specialized mesenchymes of nail and hair, and compare these findings with CD10 expression patterns.

Endoscopic Delayed Breast Reconstruction With Expanders and Implants via the Axillary Incision Made for Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy or Lymphadenectomy.

Classic techniques of delayed prosthetic breast reconstruction use the mastectomy scar as an access route. As a result, the filling of the expander must be postponed until the wounds have healed. This creates an asymmetry between the breasts with the volume changes caused by the filling of the expander, which may occur over several weeks and cause considerable discomfort.

Transabdominal Breast Augmentation: A Review of 114 Cases Performed over 14 Years.

Abdominoplasty patients are frequently candidates for breast rejuvenation as well. Transabdominal breast augmentation permits insertion of breast implants through the abdominoplasty incision. This combined procedure is preferentially performed in an outpatient setting under monitored anesthesia care and nerve blocks.

22 Cases of Breast Implant-Associated ALCL: Awareness and Outcome Tracking from the Italian Ministry of Health.

To date, 359 cases of anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) in women with breast implants (breast implant-associated ALCL [BIA-ALCL]) worldwide have been reported among more than 10 million patients who have received implants, but health care authorities suspect this is a possible underestimation, and the limited number of cases makes it difficult to clarify its cause. The General Directorate of Medical Devices and Pharmaceutical Services of the Italian Ministry of Health has examined and studied the Italia...

The Economics of Prepectoral Breast Reconstruction.

The world of breast reconstruction over the last several years has seen a dramatic shift in focus to discussion and the application of placing tissue expanders and implants back into the prepectoral space. Although this technique failed during the early advent of breast reconstruction, newer technologies such as advances in fat grafting, improved acellular dermal matrices, better methods of assessing breast flap viability, and enhanced implants appear to have set the stage for the resurgence and positive ea...

A Ballistics Examination of Firearm Injuries Involving Breast Implants.

This ballistics study examines whether saline breast implants can decrease tissue penetration in firearm injuries. We hypothesize that the fluid column within a saline breast implant can alter bullet velocity and/or bullet pattern of mushrooming. The two experimental groups included saline implants with 7.4 cm projection and a no implant group. The experimental design allowed the bullet to pass-through an implant and into ballistics gel (n = 10) or into ballistics gel without passage through an implant (n =...

Stress Analysis of Zygomatic Implants on the Augmented Maxillary Sinus: Is It Necessary to Graft?

Zygomatic implants are becoming an ideal therapy with advanced implant-supported prosthetic treatment for the posterior atrophic maxilla. The purpose of this study is to examine the quantity and distribution of stress, which was caused by zygomatic implants placed using intrasinus method with or without augmentation to the atrophic posterior maxilla.

Detection of Bacteria Colonizing Titanium Spinal Implants in Children.

Bacterial colonization of spinal implants may cause severe complications in patients with early-onset scoliosis. Correct diagnosis and detection of microbiologic formation is crucial to prevent delayed infections caused by bacterial colonization. The purposes of this study were to estimate the rate and risk factors of colonization of vertical expandable prosthetic titanium rib (VEPTR) implants in children and to compare the different methods for detecting microbiologic formation on the spinal implants.

Functional biocompatibility testing of silicone breast implants and a novel classification system based on surface roughness.

Increasing numbers of women undergo breast implantation for cosmetic and reconstructive purposes. Contracture of the fibrous capsule, which encases the implant leads to significant pain and reoperation. Texture, wettability and the cellular reaction to implant surfaces are poorly understood determinants of implant biocompatibility. The aim of this study was to evaluate the in-vitro characteristics of a range of commercial available implants using a macrophage based assay of implant biocompatibility and a qu...

Intramedullary Nailing of Metaphyseal Fractures of the Lower Extremity.

Intramedullary nailing is a worldwide accepted technique for stabilization of fractures of long bones. Technique, instruments and implants primarily have been developed for the fixation of short (transverse and oblique) diaphyseal fractures. First generation nails were hollow and slotted, which gave them some elasticity. When the tip of the nail passed the fracture gap, picked up the opposite fracture fragment and was driven further down, the longitudinal axis of the bone was restored and the extremity real...

Melanocytes Pattern in the Normal Nail, With Special Reference to Nail Bed Melanocytes.

Previous studies of the density of melanocytes in the normal nail bed have had conflicting results. This is unfortunate because knowing the normal values might help the difficult distinction between a benign subungual melanotic macule and an early melanoma in situ. Five specimens of normal nail unit were analyzed. On hematoxylin and eosin-stained sections the melanocytes were undetectable. We defined the melanocyte count (MC) as the number of melanocytes per 1-mm stretch of nail epithelium. The mean MC for ...
