The aim of this paper is to describe our case series in IBR with prepectoral implant placement and complete cover- age of it with the TiLoop® Bra titanium-coated poly- propylene mesh (TCPM), pre-shaped as a pocket.
This preliminary study showed meaningful results in prepectoral IBR with TiLoop® Bra Pocket covering the implants, we observed a reduction of implant’s exposure time and risk of bacterial contamination. Of the 18 pa- tients that underwent this procedure, only three presented complications that resolved in a maximum of four weeks.
A considering reduction of surgical time in implant positioning was achieved, lowering exposure time and risk of complications as infection.
