Implant rupture is a well-known complication of breast implant surgery that can pass unnoticed by both patient and physician. To date, no prospective study has addressed the possible health implications of silicone breast implant rupture. The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether untreated ruptures are associated with changes over time in magnetic resonance imaging findings, serologic markers, or self-reported breast symptoms. A baseline magnetic resonance imaging examination was…

The diagnosis of breast implant rupture: MRI findings compared with findings at explantation.
TLDR
MRI is highly accurate for identification of silicone breast implant rupture, with a high sensitivity and specificity when evaluation of images are based on presence of well-defined rupture criteria.
Correlation between MRI results and intraoperative findings in patients with silicone breast implants
TLDR
The results show that rupture of only the inner layers of the implant shell with integrity of the outer shell leads to a misdiagnosis on MRI.
Analysis of 30 Breast Implant Rupture Cases
TLDR
Among the various specific MRI signs used in diagnosing the rupture, the linguine sign was reliable and had a high sensitivity and specificity, especially in cases of intracapsular rupture, and the rat-tail and tear drop signs were nonspecific signs for diagnosingThe rupture of breast implant.
The Diagnosis of Silicone Breast-Implant Rupture: Clinical Findings Compared With Findings at Magnetic Resonance Imaging
TLDR
It is found that when a clinical examination is used as the sole diagnostic tool to identify implant rupture, neither the nor the specificity is acceptable.
A Retrospective Analysis of Ruptured Breast Implants
TLDR
Saline implants have a shorter average duration of rupture, but diagnosis is easier and safer, leading to fewer complications, and previous-generation silicone implants required frequent follow-up observation are recommended to be changed to a cohesive gel implant before hidden rupture occurs.
The Clinical and Diagnostic Consequences of Poly Implant Prothèse Silicone Breast Implants, Recalled from the European Market in 2010
TLDR
Clinical consequences of women with Poly Implant Prothèse implants are comparable to those reported in the literature of other manufacturers, neither complaints nor findings at physical examination had a significant correlation with implant rupture at explantation.
The Safety of Silicone Gel-Filled Breast Implants: A Review of the Epidemiologic Evidence
TLDR
It is concluded that the weight of the epidemiologic evidence does not support a causal association between breast implants and breast or any other type of cancer, definite or atypical connective tissue disease, adverse offspring effects, or neurologic disease.
Economic Analysis of Screening Strategies for Rupture of Silicone Gel Breast Implants
TLDR
Screening with ultrasound followed by magnetic resonance imaging was optimal for asymptomatic women, and screening with ultrasound was optimal to detect ruptures in symptomatic women.
Imaging of breast implants—a pictorial review
The number of women with breast implants is increasing. Radiologists must be familiar with the normal and abnormal findings of common implants. Implant rupture is a well-known complication after
Rupture of the Cohesive Silicone Gel Implant after Breast Augmentation
TLDR
US without MRI has asatisfactoryrole in the screening method for detection of cohesive silicone gel implant rupture in symptomatic cases.

Incidence of silicone breast implant rupture.
TLDR
The risk of implant rupture increases with implant age, and double-lumen implants were associated with substantially lower rupture risk than single- lumen implants.
Prevalence of Silicone Breast Implant Rupture among Danish Women
TLDR
In the future, the authors plan to examine the women in their cohort with a second magnetic resonance imaging scan to establish the incidence of rupture, a parameter unknown to date in the literature, and to further characterize those factors associated with the actual risk of rupture.
Diagnosis of breast implant rupture: imaging findings and relative efficacies of imaging techniques.
TLDR
The results show that MR imaging is more sensitive and specific for the detection of breast implant rupture than is mammography, CT, or sonography.
Silicone gel breast implant rupture, extracapsular silicone, and health status in a population of women.
TLDR
An association between extracapsular silicone from ruptured silicone breast implants and FM is suggested, and women with silicone gel breast implants should be informed of the potential risk of developing fibromyalgia if their breast implants rupture and the silicone gel escapes the fibrous scar capsule.
Epidemiological Investigation of Local Complications After Cosmetic Breast Implant Surgery in Denmark
Concern has been raised recently regarding the absence of information on the occurrence and severity of local complications after cosmetic breast implantation. The authors evaluated the occurrence of
Analysis of risk factors associated with rupture of silicone gel breast implants.
TLDR
Although the results of this study are based on a nonrandomized explant population from a single surgeon's practice, knowledge of these risk factors will enable the medical community to better advise their breast implant population regarding durability and appropriate time for removal or replacement.
Silicone Gel–Filled Breast Implant Integrity: A Retrospective Review of 478 Consecutively Explanted Implants
TLDR
A retrospective case note review of explanted silicone breast implants was performed, finding no evidence that the currently used textured silicone gel breast implants are subject to the same loss of integrity as previous examples of these devices.
The Fate of Breast Implants: A CriticalAnalysis of Complications and Outcomes
TLDR
Complications and outcomes were monitored following the implantation of 1655 breast implants over a 15-year period and contracture was more common following breast reconstruction and implant replacement than after augmentation mammaplasty and was not affected by filler material or implant size.
Regional silicone-gel migration in patients with ruptured implants.
TLDR
Implant removal may be indicated for intracapsular ruptures to prevent silicone-gel migration into parenchyma, chest wall muscles, axillae, and the upper extremity.
Sclerodermalike esophageal disease in children breast-fed by mothers with silicone breast implants.
TLDR
A relationship appears to exist between breast-feeding by mothers with silicone implants and abnormal esophageal motility and studies evaluating larger numbers of children are needed to determine the extent of the risk.
