The quality of capsule structure around both tested implants differs significantly. Although capsules around TCPM-covered implants presented were thinner, they integrated with the mesh in a rigid cage structure capsule with higher infiltration of inflammatory cells caused by a significant foreign body reaction. TCPM-covered silicone implants showed no apparent advantage in the reduction of capsular contracture. On the other hand, the indication for using this material as a supportive soft tissue structure can be confirmed. Level of Evidence: not ratable, experimental study.
