Breast reconstruction after mastectomy. (1/114)

This activity is designed for primary care physicians. GOAL: To appreciate the significant advances and current techniques in breast reconstruction after mastectomy and realize the positive physical and emotional benefits to the patient. OBJECTIVES: 1. Understand basic and anatomic principles of breast reconstruction. 2. Discuss the options for breast reconstruction: a) immediate versus delayed; b) autologous tissue versus implant; and c) stages of reconstruction and ancillary procedures. 3. Provide a comprehensive overview of the risks and benefits of, as well as the alternatives to, each approach so primary care physicians can counsel patients effectively.  (+info)

Silicone breast implants: epidemiological evidence of sequelae. (2/114)

Skeptics may certainly find fault with the third study (the only one to report a significant finding) or with all or any of the statistics described. But few could argue, after examining these studies, that the relative risk for a known and well-defined connective tissue disease is likely greater than 2. Another possibility has been raised, one that calls to mind other difficult-to-study syndromes linked to exposures. In a study addressing Gulf War syndrome, signs and symptoms were often mentioned that proved difficult to describe systematically and therefore difficult to study. What if a suspected silicone exposure syndrome were so mild and transient that it did not warrant a physician visit (as in the Mayo Clinic study). receive a diagnosis (as in the Nurses' Health Study), or require admission to a hospital (as in the Danish and Swedish studies)? And if such a disorder were, in fact, mild and transient, should it merit the concern that has been shown and the compensation that has been awarded in the silicone implant litigation cases to date? We suggest that neither a well-described disorder with a relative risk of less than 2 nor a transient and mild disorder seems compatible with the number of litigants over silicone implants and the apparent seriousness of their complaints. Some 400,000 women joined in one class action suit for damages, and 170,000 joined in another. Even if there had been 2 million implants undertaken in the United States over the 3 decades in which implant surgery has been practiced (and some estimates put the number closer to 1 million), there is no conceivable way in which a relative risk of 2 or 3 (or even 4) for each of the rare syndromes reported could explain so many exposed women being affected. At most, 2200 out of 2 million unexposed women would be expected to have had any one of the listed forms of connective tissue disorders, most of which are very rare. Doubling the risk among the exposed population yields 4400, and increasing the risk 20-fold produces 44,000. At this rate, there is no way in which 400,000 litigants could all be affected. Extensions of the already-completed studies are ongoing, at least 1 of which is government funded; apparently it is thought in the United States (though not in the United Kingdom or elsewhere) that there is still room for reasonable doubt as to the supposed causal relationships. But if epidemiology is invoked in the interest of public health to prevent the many uses of silicone, the weight of the evidence abstracted here supports the inference that silicone breast implants have not been proved guilty of causing connective tissue disorders.  (+info)

Extended field-of-view two-dimensional ultrasonography of the breast: improvement in lesion documentation. (4/114)

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the use of extended field-of-view two-dimensional ultrasonographic imaging for improvement in overall breast lesion documentation. Sonographic images of 59 patients with breast lesions or silicone implants were evaluated by three radiologists retrospectively to compare traditional static linear array images alone with images obtained with the addition of an extended field of view to determine if documentation of lesions was improved. The addition of extended field-of-view imaging improved lesion conspicuity by 21% over traditional images. It provided overall improvement in lesion documentation by including a reference point (nipple) or by more completely imaging large masses in 79% and implants in 69%. The larger field of view of this technique is promising as an adjunct to traditional sonography for breast lesion documentation.  (+info)

Comparison of self-reported diagnosis of connective tissue disease with medical records in female health professionals: the Women's Health Cohort Study. (5/114)

To compare self-report of connective tissue disease (CTD) with medical records, subjects were selected from 395,543 female health professionals with and without breast implants who reported CTD on mailed questionnaires from 1992 to 1995. The authors identified 220 women with breast implants (exposed) who self-reported CTD and a random sample of 879 women without breast implants (unexposed) who also self-reported CTD, matched by age and date of diagnosis. Medical records were reviewed using classification criteria from the American College of Rheumatology or other published criteria. After up to three requests and a telephone call, 27.7% of the women provided consent for medical record review. Exposed women appeared somewhat more likely (33.2% vs. 26.3%, p = 0.04) to provide consent. Using medical record reviews for 90% of the women who provided consent, confirmation rates of definite CTD were similar among the exposed and unexposed (22.7% vs. 24.0%, p = 0.83). This study demonstrates the difficulty of obtaining consent for medical record review of CTD reported to have occurred years ago in women with and without breast implants. Confirmation rates were low but were similar in exposed and unexposed. Despite the fact that the study had low participation rates, the data suggest that relative risk estimates for any definite CTD among women with breast implants compared with women without breast implants would be similar in analyses of self-reported or medical record-confirmed cases.  (+info)

Meta-analyses of the relation between silicone breast implants and the risk of connective-tissue diseases. (6/114)

BACKGROUND: The postulated relation between silicone breast implants and the risk of connective-tissue and autoimmune diseases has generated intense medical and legal interest during the past decade. The salience of the issue persists, despite the fact that a great deal of research has been conducted on this subject. To provide a stronger quantitative basis for addressing the postulated relation, we applied several techniques of meta-analysis that combine, compare, and summarize the results of existing relevant studies. METHODS: We searched data bases and reviewed citations in relevant articles to identify studies that met prestated inclusion criteria. Nine cohort studies, nine case-control studies, and two cross-sectional studies were included in our meta-analyses. We conducted meta-analyses of the results of these studies, both with and without adjustment for confounding factors, and a separate analysis restricted to studies of silicone-gel-filled breast implants. Finally, we estimated the annual number of new cases of connective-tissue disease that could be attributed to breast implants. RESULTS: There was no evidence that breast implants were associated with a significant increase in the summary adjusted relative risk of individual connective-tissue diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, 1.04 [95 percent confidence interval, 0.72 to 1.51]; systemic lupus erythematosus, 0.65 [95 percent confidence interval, 0.35 to 1.23]; scleroderma or systemic sclerosis, 1.01 [95 percent confidence interval, 0.59 to 1.73]; and Sjogren's syndrome, 1.42 [95 percent confidence interval, 0.65 to 3.11]); all definite connective-tissue diseases combined (0.80; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.62 to 1.04); or other autoimmune or rheumatic conditions (0.96; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.74 to 1.25). Nor was there evidence of significantly increased risk in the unadjusted analyses or in the analysis restricted to silicone-gel-filled implants. CONCLUSIONS: On the basis of our meta-analyses, there was no evidence of an association between breast implants in general, or silicone-gel-filled breast implants specifically, and any of the individual connective-tissue diseases, all definite connective-tissue diseases combined, or other autoimmune or rheumatic conditions. From a public health perspective, breast implants appear to have a minimal effect on the number of women in whom connective-tissue diseases develop, and the elimination of implants would not be likely to reduce the incidence of connective-tissue diseases.  (+info)

Induction of hypergammaglobulinemia and macrophage activation by silicone gels and oils in female A.SW mice. (7/114)

Although most published epidemiological studies have found little evidence of systemic autoimmune disease associated with silicone breast implants, there still remains a question of whether silicones can cause local and/or systemic immune dysfunction. This study further investigates the effects of silicones on autoantibody and immunoglobulin production and macrophage activation in female A.SW mice. Sixty mice were divided among four treatment groups receiving a 0.5-ml intraperitoneal injection of either phosphate-buffered saline (PBS), pristane, silicone gel, or silicone oil. Test bleeds were taken periodically for 6 months. In contrast to pristane, neither silicone gel nor silicone oil induced lupus-associated antinuclear autoantibodies (immunoglobulin G [IgG] anti-nRNP/Sm, Su, and ribosomal P) or lupus nephritis. However, serum IgM became elevated persistently within 1 month of silicone gel or silicone oil administration. Also, the level of IgG3 was clearly elevated in silicone oil-treated mice. In contrast, IgG1, IgG2a, and IgG2b levels were not affected greatly by either silicone gel or oil. Furthermore, peritoneal macrophages from silicone- and pristane-treated mice produced higher levels of interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta) and IL-6 than those from PBS-treated mice after lipopolysaccharide stimulation. These results suggest that silicone gels and oils are capable of inducing hypergammaglobulinemia and activating macrophages in female A.SW mice.  (+info)

Breast implants and illness: a model of psychological factors. (8/114)

Studies of disease outcomes have not produced an explanation or an intervention for the symptoms and complaints that some women have attributed to breast implants. Reviews of the literature have found no increased risk of specific systemic disease, and no treatment recommendations have emerged. However, similar symptoms in fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and other contexts have been considered to be stress or behaviourally mediated, and a number of promising behavioural interventions have been developed. Aetiological, research, and treatment implications may follow from the consideration of such symptoms within a behavioural medicine model that allows for the interaction of physical and psychological influences. In the case of implants, a mass somatisation model may also help to discern the potential effects of litigation and other social influences.  (+info)

Some common types of connective tissue diseases include:

1. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA): A chronic autoimmune disorder that causes inflammation and joint damage.
2. Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE): An autoimmune disorder that can affect multiple systems in the body, including the skin, joints, and kidneys.
3. Sjogren's syndrome: An autoimmune disorder that causes dry eyes and mouth, as well as joint pain and swelling.
4. Fibromyalgia: A chronic condition characterized by widespread muscle pain and fatigue.
5. Myositis: Inflammatory diseases that affect the muscles, such as dermatomyositis and polymyositis.
6. Giant cell arteritis: A condition that causes inflammation of the blood vessels, particularly in the head and neck.
7. Takayasu arteritis: A condition that causes inflammation of the blood vessels in the aorta and its branches.
8. Polyarteritis nodosa: A condition that causes inflammation of the blood vessels, particularly in the hands and feet.
9. IgG4-related disease: A condition characterized by inflammation and damage to various organs, including the pancreas, salivary glands, and liver.

Connective tissue diseases can cause a wide range of symptoms, including joint pain and stiffness, fatigue, skin rashes, fever, and weight loss. Treatment options vary depending on the specific disease and its severity, but may include medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), corticosteroids, and disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs). In some cases, surgery or physical therapy may also be necessary.

Capsular contracture can occur as a result of the body's natural response to a foreign object, such as an implant. The immune system responds to the implant by producing inflammatory cells, which can lead to the formation of scar tissue. In some cases, the scar tissue can become so thick that it constricts the implant, causing pain and limited mobility.

There are several factors that can contribute to the development of capsular contracture, including:

1. Type of implant material: Some materials may be more likely to cause an immune response and lead to capsular contracture than others.
2. Implant size and shape: Larger or irregularly shaped implants may be more likely to cause capsular contracture.
3. Location of the implant: Implants in certain locations, such as near vital structures like nerves or blood vessels, may be more likely to cause capsular contracture.
4. Infection: Bacterial infections can trigger an immune response and lead to the formation of scar tissue.
5. Poor surgical technique: Improper implantation techniques can increase the risk of capsular contracture.

There are several methods for diagnosing capsular contracture, including:

1. Physical examination: A doctor may palpate the implant site to assess the firmness of the scar tissue and the range of motion.
2. Imaging studies: X-rays, CT scans, or MRI scans can be used to visualize the implant and assess the extent of capsular contracture.
3. Biopsy: A sample of tissue can be removed from the implant site and examined under a microscope to confirm the presence of scar tissue.

Treatment for capsular contracture typically involves surgical intervention to release or remove the scar tissue. This may involve:

1. Capsulectomy: A surgical procedure to remove the scar tissue and release the implant from the capsule.
2. Implant exchange: In severe cases, the implant may need to be removed and replaced with a new one.
3. Tissue expansion: A procedure that involves gradually stretching the tissue around the implant over several months to allow for more natural movement and flexibility.

Preventive measures include:

1. Proper surgical technique: Using proper surgical techniques during implant placement can help reduce the risk of capsular contracture.
2. Implant size and type: Choosing the appropriate implant size and type for the patient's body can help prevent capsular contracture.
3. Post-operative care: Proper post-operative care, including wound cleanliness and dressing changes, can help reduce the risk of infection and capsular contracture.
4. Patient education: Educating patients about the risks of capsular contracture and providing them with proper instructions for post-operative care can help prevent complications.

Some common types of breast diseases include:

1. Fibrocystic breast disease: A condition characterized by the formation of small lumps or cysts in the breast tissue, often accompanied by breast pain.
2. Fibroadenoma: A benign tumor that is made up of glandular and fibrous tissue, typically found in young women.
3. Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS): A type of cancer that originates in the milk ducts and has not spread to other parts of the breast or body.
4. Invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC): The most common type of breast cancer, which starts in the milk ducts but has invaded the surrounding tissue.
5. Invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC): A type of breast cancer that starts in the milk-producing glands (lobules) and has invaded the surrounding tissue.
6. Breast abscess: A collection of pus in the breast tissue, often caused by an infection.
7. Mastitis: An inflammation of the breast tissue, usually caused by a bacterial infection.
8. Breast cancer recurrence: Cancer that has returned after previous treatment.

Early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases are crucial for effective treatment and improved outcomes. Screening tests such as mammography, ultrasound, and biopsy can help identify breast diseases at an early stage, when they are more treatable. Treatment options for breast diseases depend on the type and severity of the condition, and may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or hormone therapy.

Anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is a rare subtype of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that was first identified in 1985. It typically affects the skin, particularly the legs, and can present with symptoms such as swelling, redness, and itching. Less common sites include the lymph nodes, liver, spleen, bone marrow, or gastrointestinal tract.

Symptoms of ALCL may also include fever, night sweats, weight loss, fatigue, and swollen lymph nodes. The cancer cells are typically large and have an "anaplastic" appearance under a microscope, with prominent nucleoli and abundant cytoplasm.

Treatment for ALCL usually involves chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or a combination of both. In some cases, bone marrow or stem cell transplantation may be necessary. The prognosis for ALCL varies depending on the stage and location of the cancer, but overall it is considered to be a relatively rare and aggressive form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

In summary, anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is a rare and aggressive subtype of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that primarily affects the skin, but can also involve other lymphoid tissues and organs. It is characterized by large, anaplastic cells with prominent nucleoli and abundant cytoplasm, and typically presents with symptoms such as swelling, redness, itching, fever, night sweats, weight loss, and fatigue. Treatment usually involves chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or a combination of both, and the prognosis varies depending on the stage and location of the cancer.

The exact cause of ductal carcinoma is unknown, but certain risk factors such as family history, genetics, hormone replacement therapy, obesity, and delayed childbearing have been linked to its development. Early detection through mammography and breast self-examination can improve survival rates, which are generally high for women diagnosed with this type of cancer if caught early. Treatment typically involves surgery to remove the tumor (lumpectomy or mastectomy), followed by radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy.

1. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA): An autoimmune disease that causes inflammation in the joints, leading to pain, stiffness, and swelling.
2. Osteoarthritis (OA): A degenerative condition that occurs when the cartilage in the joints wears down over time, causing pain and stiffness.
3. Psoriatic arthritis (PsA): An inflammatory disease that affects both the skin and joints, often occurring in people with psoriasis.
4. Ankylosing spondylitis (AS): A condition that causes inflammation in the spine and peripheral joints, leading to stiffness and pain.
5. Lupus: An autoimmune disease that can affect multiple systems in the body, including the joints, skin, and kidneys.
6. Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA): A condition that affects children under the age of 16, causing inflammation in the joints and potentially leading to long-term complications.
7. Sjogren's syndrome: An autoimmune disorder that affects the glands that produce tears and saliva, causing dryness in the eyes and mouth.
8. Fibromyalgia: A condition characterized by widespread pain, fatigue, and sleep disturbances.
9. Gout: A type of inflammatory arthritis caused by excessive levels of uric acid in the blood, leading to sudden and severe attacks of joint pain.
10. Osteoporosis: A condition characterized by brittle bones and an increased risk of fractures, often occurring in older adults.

Rheumatic diseases can be challenging to diagnose and treat, as they often involve complex symptoms and a range of possible causes. However, with the help of rheumatology specialists and advanced diagnostic tools, it is possible to manage these conditions effectively and improve quality of life for patients.

It is important to identify and address prosthesis failure early to prevent further complications and restore the functionality of the device. This may involve repairing or replacing the device, modifying the design, or changing the materials used in its construction. In some cases, surgical intervention may be necessary to correct issues related to the implantation of the prosthetic device.

Prosthesis failure can occur in various types of prosthetic devices, including joint replacements, dental implants, and orthotic devices. The causes of prosthesis failure can range from manufacturing defects to user error or improper maintenance. It is essential to have a comprehensive understanding of the factors contributing to prosthesis failure to develop effective solutions and improve patient outcomes.

In conclusion, prosthesis failure is a common issue that can significantly impact the quality of life of individuals who rely on prosthetic devices. Early identification and addressing of prosthesis failure are crucial to prevent further complications and restore functionality. A comprehensive understanding of the causes of prosthesis failure is necessary to develop effective solutions and improve patient outcomes.
