Background: Capsular contracture remains one of the most commonly reported complications in aesthetic and reconstructive breast patients. Previous in vitro studies from the authors' laboratory have recommended a new triple antibiotic povidone-iodine irrigation (2000) and subsequently a triple antibiotic non–povidone-iodine–containing irrigant (2001) to optimize broad-spectrum coverage of various bacteria implicated in capsular contracture; however, the clinical efficacy of these in vitro… Expand
Revisiting Triple Antibiotic Irrigation of Breast Implant Pockets: A Placebo-controlled Single Practice Cohort Study
TLDR
Triple antibiotic breast irrigation is not associated with a significant reduction in the incidence or severity of capsular contracture compared with sterile saline when high-quality surgical technique is used. Expand
The Role of Triple-Antibiotic Saline Irrigation in Breast Implant Surgery
TLDR
The microbiological data behind the selection of the constituents of triple-antibiotic saline is investigated and in vitro testing of the effectiveness of topical antibiotics used in saline irrigation against microorganisms responsible for breast implant infection is reviewed. Expand
A Systematic Review of Breast Irrigation in Implant-Based Breast Surgery.
TLDR
Current irrigation practices in implant-based breast surgery suggest that chlorhexidine gluconate, Betadine, and TAS irrigation of the breast pocket can provide protection against infection and implant loss in both reconstruction and augmentation surgeries. Expand
Evaluation of Antibiotic Irrigation Versus Saline Irrigation in Reducing the Long-Term Incidence and Severity of Capsular Contraction After Primary Augmentation Mammoplasty
TLDR
There was no difference between triple antibiotic and saline irrigation in the incidence or severity of capsular contracture at 2.8 years follow-up when high-quality surgical technique is used. Expand
Efficacy and Safety of Povidone-Iodine Irrigation in Reducing the Risk of Capsular Contracture in Aesthetic Breast Augmentation: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Low methodologic quality of included studies limits recommendations for perioperative povidone-iodine irrigation as the standard of practice, and recommends additional high-quality trials are warranted to corroborate the findings. Expand
A breast prosthesis infection update: Two-year incidence, risk factors and management at single institution
TLDR
Judicious use of drains and efficiency in the operating room as modifiable risk factors for infections following implant-based breast reconstruction are identified and prospects for infection prevention are warranted. Expand
Post-Mastectomy Surgical Pocket Irrigation With Triple Antibiotic Solution vs Chlorhexidine Gluconate: A Randomized Controlled Trial Assessing Surgical Site Infections in Immediate Tissue Expander Breast Reconstruction.
TLDR
This study does not demonstrate a statistically significant difference in SSI between TAS and CHG irrigation, though TAS approached statistical significance for lower rates of infectious complications. Expand
Evaluating the Efficacy of Povidone-Iodine Solution Infection Prophylaxis in Immediate Tissue Expander-Based Breast Reconstruction: A Controlled Retrospective Analysis
There is currently no consensus among plastic surgeons regarding the optimal infection prophylaxis for immediate tissue expander placement following mastectomy. The goal of this study was toExpand
Breast Reconstruction with Tissue Expanders: Implementation of a Standardized Best-Practices Protocol to Reduce Infection Rates
TLDR
The authors’ comprehensive, best-practices protocol allowed them to reduce the odds of tissue expander infections by 55 percent and identify several potential areas of improvement that may help them lower the rate of infection further in the future. Expand
Should Immediate Autologous Breast Reconstruction Be Considered in Women Who Require Postmastectomy Radiation Therapy? A Prospective Analysis of Outcomes.
TLDR
A comparison of smooth and textured silicone breast prostheses among different types of implants for reconstructive breast surgery and the risks and benefits of estrogen plus progestin in healthy postmenopausal women are presented. Expand

Optimizing breast pocket irrigation: an in vitro study and clinical implications.
TLDR
To maximize bacterial control of common breast implant organisms and to minimize the detrimental effects on wound healing, 10% povidone-iodine in gentamycin/cefazolin may be used with excellent results and its use clinically may reduce the incidence of capsular contracture. Expand

  • 2002
TLDR
Applying motion and time study principles to analysis and refinement of instrumentation and surgical techniques resulted in a substantial reduction in perioperative morbidity and a simpler, shorter 24-hour return to full normal activity for 96 percent of the patients undergoing breast augmentation in group 3 compared with groups 1 and 2.

Capsular Contracture: A Prospective Study of the Effect of Local Antibacterial Agents
TLDR
In a prospective, random, double-blind, and concurrently controlled clinical study of 124 patients having augmentation mammaplasty, the use of a variety of local antibacterials in or around inflatable retromammary prosthetic implants reduced the early postoperative onset of class III to IV capsular contracture. Expand
Effect of povidone iodine on silicone gel breast implants in vitro: implications for clinical practice.
TLDR
An in vitro experimental study was undertaken to assess the effect of povidone iodine on the physical properties of silicone breast implant shells and found no correlation was shown between the concentration of the solution used and the tensile strength of the specimens. Expand
The Effect of Siltex Texturing and Povidone‐Iodine Irrigation on Capsular Contracture Around Saline Inflatable Breast Implants
A prospective, controlled, and blinded clinical study was performed on 56 patient volunteers to determine the effects of two independent variables—the Siltex textured inflatable implant andExpand
Clinical relevance of positive breast periprosthetic cultures without overt infection.
TLDR
The true incidence of positive breast periprosthetic cultures in the absence of overt infection is not clearly established, and the only statistically significant correlation was between positive culture result and symptomatic capsular contracture (Baker class IV). Expand
Topical antibiotic irrigation in the prophylaxis of operative wound infections in orthopedic surgery.
TLDR
The effectiveness of topical antibiotics has been shown well enough in vitro and in the surgical literature to justify strong consideration of their use in orthopedic procedures, and evidence to suggest that the more often an irrigant is used, the more effective it is in preventing infection. Expand
Detection of Subclinical Infection in Significant Breast Implant Capsules
TLDR
A comparative, prospective, blinded, clinical study of implants and capsules removed from patients with or without significant capsular contracture was conducted to investigate the association of biofilm contamination, breast implants, and capsularcontracture. Expand
The Effect of Biocell Texturing and Povidone‐Iodine Irrigation on Capsular Contracture Around Saline‐Inflatable Breast Implants
TLDR
Antibacterial irrigation and surface texturization may work in a cumulative manner to reduce the early incidence of capsular contracture in patients following retromammary augmentation. Expand
Breast augmentation: compression--a very important factor in preventing capsular contracture.
TLDR
The authors' technique, their preoperative and postoperative regimens, an explanation of how they use compression, and the scientific and mathematical explanation of why compression could be the most important factor in preventing capsular compression are described are described. Expand
