The effect of a bacterial contamination on the formation of capsular contracture with polyurethane breast implants in comparison with textured silicone implants: an animal study.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION One of the most common complications following breast augmentation is capsular contracture. The subclinical infection of the implant is often considered to be one of the main risk factors. It is believed that polyurethane (PU) implants, because of their larger foam-like surface, have lower capsular contracture rates due to better tissue… (More)
