Amount Awarded: $52,900

Project Name: Impact on ADMs on Biofilms Around Breast Implants
Project Summary: The proposed study will evaluate the problem of capsular contracture in aesthetic breast surgery. Importantly, a cellular dermal matrices are being touted for their utility in revision aesthetic breast surgery and for their ability to limit capsular contracture. Claims related to reduced capsular contractures are based on modest animal data, and a scant few qualitative comments in the literature.
The goal is to establish whether a cellular dermal matrices impact periprosthetic biolfilm formation-a leading culprit in the putative mechanism for capsular contracture.
