ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Normal peri-capsular reactive fluid

History: Breast pain for 2 weeks Patient supplied a copy of the implant "tags" given to her by her plastic surgeon indicating that the implants are Mentor 354-2650

Findings: Longitudinal image near 12:00. There is wedge shaped collection of fluid (arrows) noted between the inner surface of the fibrous capsule and the surface of the shell of the implant (arrowheads). The fluid is anechoic and can easily be displaced with increase of scanning pressure.

Ddx: 1. Normal peri-capsular fluid seen in a patient with a textured surface breast implant. 2. Normal standard double lumen implant. 3. Normal pericapsular fluid contiguous to a polyurethane coated implant. 4. Infected pericapsular fluid. 5. Hemorrhage into the percapsular space.

Exam: Negative except for mild generalized breast tenderness.

No MeSH data available.


Longitudinal Ultrasound image 12:00.  The arrows indicate the wedge-shaped pericapsular fluid collection. Arrowheads denote the outside of the implant\'s shell.
