Event Description
It was reported that a patient underwent an implant exchange surgery and was implanted with allergan breast implants and strattice on (b)(6) 2018. Almost one year later, patient presented with a spontaneous exposed right breast implant with an abscess. They ended up in the er, labs were drawn and a culture was taken of the abscess fluid on the right breast. They were put on antibiotics and within 24 hours, their incision started to open up. Their implant and unincorporated strattice was exposed. A surgeon identified the strattice and removed the exposed strips, and patient's right side implant was removed about a week later. Two days after the removal of the implant, a left abscess appeared, and the implant was removed. Patient had drains placed and immediately started to discharge a thick, green mucous. All cultures from drainage and tissue and all blood tests showed no bacteria, no fungus, no inflammatory markers. Their incisions started to open again and another hole formed on their right breast and dealt with extreme discharge. Breast implants and any leftover adm were removed. After surgery, the green discharged stopped. The right breast healed, and the left breast had cellulitis. Patient was taken to the hospital where they received iv antibiotics, blood draw, culture of discharge from cellulitis and an ultrasound. Patient went to an infusion center every 12 hours. Patient left side incision started to open up again and had to go to the complex care at the hospital for specialized wound care. Patient still has an open wound and does not feel like they are healing. Patient found out the capsule was not completed removed because their doctor said they needed it over their lungs. Patient fears the strattice is still left in their body and causing harm to them as well as the deformity of their breasts. All of their doctors indicated it was the adm causing the issue. All tissue cultures, blood tests and serum cultures came back normal. Patient had no infection, no fungus, no cancer. Nurse initially stated that the strattice had no relation to this event and then followed up by stating said that the patient was symptomatic with the strattice and implants. The symptoms continued after strattice and implants were removed. There was no relation to the strattice or implants; however, they were uncertain what the cause was, since the implants and strattice had been implanted one year prior to symptoms presenting. Strattice and implant were explanted on (b)(6) 2019. The strattice is available for return. The affected lot number is sp200022.
