Breast implants: Biological reactions and practical applications

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The A. at first reviews historic aspects, physical-chemical and commerical data and the implant technique of mammary prosthesis. Biological reactions are then particularly considered. They are divided in two different groups: true complications and reactions due to the presence of inorganic materials. Particular emphasis is devoted to the problem of constricting capsule: different proposals for its therapy and prevention are presented.
