Memory Gel and Shape Combined Cohort

2016-09-29 23:08:21 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to collect additional post-approval clinical data on the long-term performance of MemoryShape and MemoryGel Breast Implants, as indicated for primary or revisional breast augmentation and primary or revisional breast reconstruction.


The post-approval study will include 2218 women receiving MemoryShape or MemoryGel Breast Implants. Four cohorts will be included: primary augmentation, revision-augmentation, primary reconstruction, and revision-reconstruction. For the purpose of assessing rheumatological and neurological signs and symptoms, a control group of 300 women will be selected from the participating investigators' practices, who are undergoing an aesthetic surgery other than breast implant surgery. Breast implant patients and the concurrent control group patients will be followed for 10 years. Baseline and operative data will be collected at the beginning of the study, and follow-up data will be collected annually for 10 years through online questionnaires.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).

Multi-channel hearing devices typically used for patients who have tumors on the COCHLEAR NERVE and are unable to benefit from COCHLEAR IMPLANTS after tumor surgery that severs the cochlear nerve. The device electrically stimulates the nerves of cochlea nucleus in the BRAIN STEM rather than the inner ear as in cochlear implants.
