Mother, 28, reveals she nearly died after TWO botched breast implants advertised on Instagram

Holly McCulloch, 28, of Greasby, Wirral, always felt down about her B-cup chest, particularly as she got older. She therefore booked herself into a clinic that charged £2,700 for a five-day, all-inclusive stay.

Conclusions Epidemiological studies have repeatedly helped identify definitive triggers for several diseases. As highlighted in this perspective report, previous studies strongly argue for the interplay between intrinsic factors and putative preventable extrinsic triggers/promoters for CTCL. Given the evidence of geographical regional clustering of CTCL patients, CTCL occurrence in unrelated family members and recent evidence implicating S. aureus in the pathogenesis/progression of CTCL, more research is needed to decipher the precise mechanism by which specific environmental exposures may be driving the pathogenesis of t...

The objective of the textured surface is to limit movement and reduce the formation of overly tight scar tissue. It is noteworthy here that the function of the textured surface depends on its ability to alter tissue response. Yet this can lead to inconsistent thinking in which positive effects of surface changes are touted while negative effects are denied. Unfortunately, textured surfaces on breast implants have also been linked to the development of Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL), an adverse effect beyond any associated just with the long-term presence of silicone. FDA has noted that factors influencing ALCL inclu...

Conclusions We propose to include the presence of upper extremity involvement in Romanini's TBN classification (TBNS) for optimal management of these patients and use a standard number and profile for image documentation presurgery and postsurgery. We found that in the literature the ratio of men and women with PS was not 2 to 3:1, but 1:1. The most frequent phenotype of PS was T1B1N1S0 (hypoplasia or aplasia of the pectoralis muscles and soft tissue/breast hypoplasia/nipple-areolar complex with dislocation of

There has been intense discussion lately about the risks associated with breast implants. France has gone so far as to ban the use of textured breast implants – an act that occurred earlier this month. Solana Beach, CA-based Puregraft has developed an option other than an implant - a technology that would use a patient’s own fat, for breast augmentation, or restructuring. “Fat transfer, believe it or not, is the most popular procedure that you’ve never heard of,” Brad Conlan, Puregraft CEO, told MD+DI. “The first fat...

We present a case of u nresectable BI‐ALCL, which was successfully treated with brentuximab vedotin. Key Clinical MessageBI ‐ALCL is a rare CD30+ T‐cell malignancy, which is known to complicate textured breast implants. The CD30‐targeting immunoconjugate, brentuximab vedotin, has been suggested for invasive BI‐ALCL; however, its efficacy for unresectable BI‐ALCL has not been demonstrated. We present a case of u nresectable BI‐ALCL, which was successfully treated with brentuximab vedotin.

Australia’s TGA said yesterday that it is seeking new data from suppliers of textured breast implants, which have been linked to a rare immune-system cancer, before making a decision on whether or not to suspend or cancel those products from its Register of Therapeutic Goods. The regulatory body gave suppliers of the devices 10 working days to respond to the requests for more information, including dates they began to supply the devices and samples of the implants, according to a TGA release. The decision comes after the convening of a breast implant expert panel on April 8, following recent decisions made in Canada ...

Presidential candidate and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) wants to see more business people behind bars, and she ’s not fussy about how to make that happen. In aWashington Post op-ed last week she unveiled a new Corporate Executive Accountability Act, which in her words would expand “criminal liability to any corporate executive who negligently oversees a giant company causing severe harm to U.S. families.” She says she wants top executives to know that they can be (again in her own words) “hauled out in handcuffs for failing to reasonably oversee the companies they run.”Und...

France has banned several types of textured breast implants that have been linked to a rare form of cancer, and more countries appear to be following suit, including Canada and the Netherlands. For years researchers have raised concern about the potential association between breast implants and anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), a very rare form of cancer, but France is the first country to ban the devices. The ban took effect on Friday and covers macro-textured implants and implants with a polyurethane coating. The National Agency for Safety of Medicines and Health Products (ANSM) in France notified manufa...

AbstractImplant-associated breast cancer is a well-described pathologic process that occurs in patients with breast implants. Anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), the most prominent malignancy associated with breast implants, has been extensively described, while literature regarding non-ALCL implant-associated cancers is limited. Here, we present a rare case of a 55-year-old female with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the breast and chest following multiple breast revision surgeries who underwent tumor resection with a unique soft tissue reconstruction utilizing two anterolateral thigh (ALT) flaps in a flow-through manner.
