    AIM OF THE STUDY: Immediate breast reconstruction is often applied after mastectomy. However, inappropriate surgical technique, postoperative radiotherapy and infection may lead to tissue necrosis and implant protrusion. Traditional therapies frequently fail. However, previous data suggested that capsule flaps may be appropriate for the salvage of implants. Our goal was to investigate the usefulness of capsuloplasty in patients with exposed breast implant and to monitor the blood supply of capsule flaps during the operation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Capsuloplasty was performed in 19 patients with exposed implant. After removal of necrotic tissue, capsulotomy was performed, the planned flap was dissected free, the implant was covered with the flap and the wound was then closed. During operation, the blood flow of the flap was determined by means of laser Doppler flowmetry. Moreover, tissue samples were taken for histology and immunostaining for CD34. RESULTS: The postoperative follow-up showed that capsule flaps survived in each case: no complications were found. The blood flow of the flaps did not change significantly during the intervention as compared with the baseline values. The histology and the immunohistochemistry revealed considerable vascularization and angiogenesis in the flap. CONCLUSIONS: Capsule flaps seem to be appropriate for the salvage of exposed implants and for enhancement of implant cover in the case of thin and injured tissue.
