GONI MORENO, E.; LASSO VAZQUEZ, J.M.  y  PEREZ CANO, R.. Intraprosthesic foreing bodies after lipofilling in the follow up of a mammary reconstruction. Cir. plást. iberolatinoam. [online]. 2012, vol.38, n.2, pp.157-162. ISSN 1989-2055.

There is consensus on imaging tests used for diagnosis and management of patients with breast cancer, but there is no clear pattern of monitoring for patients undergoing breast reconstruction with silicone implants. It is more institutionalized the type of tests to perform when we suspect the rupture of the prosthesis. Magnetic Resonance (MR) is recommended as the gold standard on suspicion of silicone breast implants rupture, although it´s also accepted the use of ultrasonography as screening test in such patients. We should have a criterion that links the clinic with radiological findings, being the plastic surgeon who incorporates these criteria, along with the other members of the Breast Unit. We present the radiological and clinical results observed after an incidental finding of an intraprosthesic foreign body in a patient undergoing breast reconstruction with silicone implant, during a routine check.
