Abstract

Background: Capsular contracture remains a problem following breast implant surgery. Although impact of biofilm and implant surface on capsule formation has been demonstrated, interaction of microorganisms with different surface types has not been clarified yet. We aimed to compare the ability of biofilm formation of implants with different surfaces, under standard conditions and to demonstrate its impact on capsular contracture.
