The Polyurethane-Covered Mammary Prosthesis: Facts and Fiction (II): A Look Back and a "Peek" Ahead

T R Hester Jr et al. Clin Plast Surg.

Abstract

The senior author believes that there is a niche for polyurethane-covered devices in the new millennium if they in fact become available. During the span of this author's practice, he has never been able to match the number and quality of superior results exemplified by these patients when using other devices. Women seeking reconstruction after mastectomy or aesthetic improvement will be well served if the polyurethane-covered device once again becomes one of the choices of mammary prostheses available to them, in this author's opinion.
