What is a Microthane Prosthesis?

microthane-1

The silicone Microthane prosthesis' surface, covered in polyurethane, is specially treated and covered by a fine mesh and designed to grow surrounding tissue inside, to reduce side effects such as the prosthesis moving around and rotating as well as reducing the possibility of capsular contracture.  Also, the bond between the prosthesis and tissue quickly progresses, resulting in a fast recovery and natural shape and feel.

Special Features of the Microthane prosthesis

01

 

Reducing probability of capsular contracture,
movement and rotation of the prosthesis

Because the surface of the prosthesis is covered in a fine mesh, the vascular and tissue cells grow inwards inside of the mesh with no pressure on the prosthesis, resulting in a notieceably lower probability of capsular contracture.

What is Capsular Contracture ?


When foreign substances enter the body, the body raises its level of immunity and form fiber cells producing collagen fibers.  These collagen fibers surrond the prosthesis and create a film called a capsule.  This is a natural occurence, but in the case where the periprosthetic capsule (capsule of scar tissue) becomes overly thick, due to various causes such as a bad reaction to the prosthesis, infection, or bleeding, the prosthesis hardens and forms, what we call, capsular contracture.

Because the surface of the prosthesis is covered in a fine mesh, the surrounding tissue grows inside and safely combines with the body's tissue.  The strength of the periprosthetic capsule (capsule of scar tissue) is dispersed, inhibiting the formation of the periprosthetic capsule, making the feel and shape smooth and natural.

03


Quick Recovery and Return to Daily Activities


In comparison to preexisting prostheses, new blood vessels rapidly form and new reactions are improved.  Therefore, the inserted prosthesis safely stabilizes in a short period of time leading to a quick recovery.

Standard Prosthesis

  • development of new blood vessels is slow due to development of encapsulation
  • The inserted prosthesis needs time to stabilize
  • Difficult to return to daily activities immediately after surgery
microthane-7

Microthane Prosthesis

  • New blood vessels rapidly form due to improved vascularization response
  • The inserted prosthesis stabilizes in a short period of time
  • Possible of quick recovery to daily activities even over a short break

Strong against external impact Safe due to the existence of a barrier layer


In preexisting prostheses it is normal to create a hole in the surface for texturing, but the Microthane prosthesis does not create a hole, but creates another layer by covering the
surface with polyurethane, making it strong against external impact with almost no chance of  rupturing.   It is safe as there are 5 layers consisting of the barrier layer, which blocks the leakage of charged gel inside the prosthesis.
