Both these macrophagic reactions are due to lymphatic migration of an implant’s leaked constituents to the draining lymph nodes. The prostheses themselves are confined within a host capsule. The latter may consist of a densely textured, bland, hypocellular and hyalinized fibrous tissue. The silica added during the manufacturing process exerts a fibrogenic effect. In other patients, the capsules comprise an inflamed and, at least, focally loosely textured fibrous tissue containing lymphocytes admixed with plasma cells, foamy macrophages and, often, mono- and polykaryonic macrophages.

The central necrotic mass (NM) of the granuloma consists of an eosinophilic, amorphous and granular material and is surrounded by a giant-celled granulomatous fence (arrows). Hematoxylin and eosin. ×30. Because of its good tissue compatibility, hemocompatibility, pliability and material characteristics, polytetrafluoroethylene has explicit advantages over other synthetic as well as natural materials in cardiovascular surgery.
Calcium phosphate is the main constituent of the intracapsular mineral deposits. It is accompanied by a small amount of zinc phosphate, the zinc being an ingredient of the glue used in sealing the prostheses [385,386]. The silicone rubber envelope of the breast prostheses bounds a saline or silicone gel core. The envelope is coated with polyurethane foam in some implant types. The commercially available models differ from each other by minor structural and chemical features. Axillary lymphadenopathy becomes clinically overt, at variable postoperative intervals, in a minority of women with an implant.
