Background: Specific antimicrobial breast pocket irrigations have been proven over the past 20 years to reduce the incidence of capsular contracture by a factor of 10, and the emergence of breast implant–associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) and its link to bacteria/technique has cre-ated renewed interest in different antimicrobial breast pocket preparation agents. Our previous studies have identified that both Betadine-containing and non-Betadine-containing antimicrobial irrigations provide excellent broad-spectrum bacterial coverage. The current science of BIA-ALCL has implicated the Gram-negative microbiome as a key in pathogenesis.

Background: More than 700 women have developed an anaplastic large T cell lymphoma (ALCL) surrounding textured surface breast implants, termed  breast  implant–associated  ALCL  (BIA-ALCL).  Most  patients  with  BIA-ALCL  present  with  an  accumulation  of  fluid  (delayed  seroma)  around  the  implant. However, benign seromas without malignant cells complicating scar contracture, implant rupture, trauma, infection, and other causes are more common. For proper patient management and to avoid unnecessary surgery, a simple diagnostic test to identify malignant seromas is desirable.
