More than 500 women worldwide have developed a CD30+ T-cell lymphoma around breast implants, strongly suggesting a cause and effect relationship, and designated as breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). The mechanism of lymphomagenesis is unknown. Recently, a bacterial biofilm containing gram negative bacilli was discovered on the surface of breast implants associated with ALCL. We and others have described overexpression of the proto-oncogene JUNB and mutations of JAK1/2, TP53 and STAT3 in BIA-ALCL.
The FDA this week granted a pre-market approval supplement to Sientra (NSDQ:SIEN) for its Opus line of silicone breast implants. The implants are made in Wisconsin by Lubrizol LifeSciences subsidiary Vesta, which inked a contract manufacturing deal with Sientra back in August 2016. Sales of Sientra’s silicone breast implants ground to a halt in the autumn of 2015, when Brazilian authorities suspended production at Silimed, its supplier there, and the U.K.’s Medicines & Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency halted sales.

The Internet has become an innovative instrument older adults utilise to obtain health-related information. Poor quality health information may cause harm to individuals. If not accessible, or at a level comprehended by target audiences, this does not support the development of their knowledge and subsequently hinders patient's ability to make informed-decisions. Aim: evaluate quality, readability, accessibility and usability of online information for women with breast implants invited to attend the NHSBSP.
ConclusionThe use of dual coverage of the inferior pole with a conjoined fascial flap and ADM for immediate DTI among patients with large breasts is supported by high scores in both patient- and plastic surgeon-reported outcome measures, as well as low complication rates.Level of Evidence IVThis journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

This study was undertaken to evaluate: (1) whether lay and professional participants can distinguish between breasts augmented with either round or anatomical breast implants, (2) their opinion with regard to naturalness and attractiveness of these augmented breasts.
Abstract In patients with silicone breast implants, implant rupture can occur, which can be intracapsular or extracapsular. Following implant rupture, silicone can travel through the lymphatic system into regional and distant lymph nodes. The purpose of this pictorial essay is to present findings of silicone implant rupture with intramammary and systemic silicone deposition as seen on dual energy CT (DECT), US, mammogram, PET/CT and MRI. We include imaging findings of silicone deposition in the breast in cases of intracapsular and extracapsular rupture. We also present silicone deposition in mediastinal, axillary,...
Conclusion Our pericapsular Tuohy technique for medial closure of the pocket is a practical and efficient substitute to traditional capsulorraphy and provides reliable and reproducible results.
