Less­en­ing breas­tre­con­struc­tion pain

AEROFORM TIS­SUE EXPANDER SYS­TEM AIRXPANDERS

Popular Science - - BEST OF WHAT’S NEW 2017 -

When a woman un­der­goes breast re­con­struc­tion, sur­geons stretch the ex­ist­ing tis­sue by in­ject­ing saline into im­planted blad­ders— a painful process that de­mands doc­tor vis­its, nee­dles, and anal­gesics. The Aeroform lets women con­trol the process at their own, more-tol­er­a­ble pace. Pa­tients use a wire­less con­troller to sig­nal a CO car­tridge to re­lease air that stretches a sil­i­cone im­plant, bit by bit.
