National, Multicentre Post-Market Surveillance Study "Patient Reported Outcome" in Breast Reconstruction Following Mastectomy With Titanised Polypropylene Mesh (TiLOOP® Bra)

This national, multicentre post-market surveillance study examined the titanised polypropylene mesh implant TiLOOP® Bra which is already on the market. TiLOOP® Bra is intended for the support, reinforcement and bridging of body's own tissue in reconstructive and plastic-aesthetic breast surgery, e.g. after breast cancer.


Between December 2013 and July 2016, 269 patients were enrolled in a prospective, single-arm, multicentre study. The patients underwent a skin-sparing, nipple-sparing or modified radical mastectomy followed by primary or secondary breast reconstruction with the titanised mesh TiLOOP® Bra.
