Title: PROPHYLACTIC LEUKOTRIENE INHIBITOR AND IMPLANT DISPLACEMENT THERAPY FOR PREVENTION AND TREATMENT OF CAPSULAR CONTRACTURE IN SILICONE BREAST AUGMENTATION
Abstract:
A method of treating or preventing capsular contracture in a patient resulting from surgical insertion of a silicone breast implant in a surgically created implant pocket. The method includes administering to the patient a therapeutically effective amount of a leukotriene receptor antagonist prior to the formation of a capsular contracture in the patient. The method further includes administering a therapeutically effective amount of displacement of the breast implant within the surgically created implant pocket, the therapeutically effective amount of displacement of the breast implant being administered post-surgically but prior to the formation of a capsular contracture in the patient.
