In 2018, more than 100,000 breast cancer patients had reconstruction after mastectomy, often with implants. There are two general types of breast implants available in the U.S. -- saline and silicone gel. Breast implant complications can include hardening of the breast tissue, due to scar tissue shrinking around the implant; a rupture where the implant leaks that can cause small lumps called silicone granulomas to form; and "rippling" of the implant, if a thin layer of tissue covers the implant and sticks to the implant surface.
BellaSeno?s Founder, Mohit Chhaya, will speak about how computational modeling and simulation was an integral part of the development process of the breast implants, along with the optimization for additive manufacturing. During this webinar you will learn:
