Poland Syndrome - Silicone Implants for Correction

Poland Syndrome - Silicone Implants for Correction

We present a case of delayed seroma with a fibrous capsule formation after insertion of a textured silicone gel filled implant for the surgical correction of Poland Syndrome, in spite of an uneventful intraoperative and early postoperative course. The result achieved after treatment of the seroma without reinsertion of an implant was aesthetically satisfactory. (Aesthetic Surg J 2008;28).

There are few published works on treatment of Poland Syndrome by silicone implants to be found in the medical literature and most of them are case reports. The use of breast implants is associated with a number of complications, including hematoma, seroma, infection, altered nipple sensation, asymmetry e capsular contracture. This case report presents a delayed seroma with a fibrous capsule formation after insertion of a textured silicone implant for the treatment of Poland Syndrome and satisfactory aesthetic result after removal and reinsertion of the implant.

Physical examination showed breast asymmetry. The patient’s left was firmer and larger than the right. Routine laboratory test results were normal. Ultrasound scanning of the breast showed a significant volume of fluid surrounding the whole extension of the implant. Aspirations of the fluid under ultrasound guidance were attempted. A sample of the fluid was sent for culture and was returned with a negative result. Broad-spectrum antibiotics were prescribed before the results of the culture and were continued for 7 days. The patient was diagnosed with a delayed seroma.
