An evaluation of the clinical performance of SERI® Surgical Scaffold for soft tissue support in subjects undergoing revision augmentation surgery for increased nipple to inframammary fold distance.

Condition Intervention
Subjects Requiring Revision Breast Augmentation Surgery Device: SERI® Surgical Scaffold

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: SERI® Surgical Scaffold for Soft Tissue Support in Revision Augmentation Surgery

Further study details as provided by Sofregen Medical, Inc.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Reoperation rate (per implanted breast) for the presenting condition at 12 months. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    This refers to the proportion of implanted breasts that will require reoperation for the recurrence of the initial cause of the increase in nipple to inframammary fold distance at the end of the 12-month follow-up period.

Enrollment: 35
Study Start Date: December 2013
Study Completion Date: December 2015
Primary Completion Date: December 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: SERI® scaffold implanted breasts Device: SERI® Surgical Scaffold
Standard revision augmentation (with or without implant exchange) with the adjunctive use of SERI® Surgical Scaffold placed intra- or extra-capsularly.


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Negative nicotine test at screening visit
  • Previous augmentation with silicone-filled or saline-filled breast implants requiring Revision Augmentation surgery for increased nipple:inframammary fold distance
  • Well vascularized skin flaps that can be approximated without tension

Exclusion Criteria:

  • BMI (Body Mass Index) that is ≥ 30 kg/m2
  • Active smoker or have smoked within 6 weeks prior to screening visit
  • Pregnant or nursing
  • Advanced fibrocystic disease considered to be premalignant without accompanying subcutaneous mastectomy
  • Carcinoma of the breast
  • Previous mastectomy or lumpectomy
  • Abscess or infection in the body at the time of enrollment
  • Had any disease, including uncontrolled diabetes (e.g., HbAIc > 8%), that is clinically known to impact wound healing ability. For example: collagen-vascular, connective tissue or autoimmune disorders (e.g., Systemic Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Scleroderma)
  • Subjects with diagnosed diabetes must have HbAIc ≤ 8% within 3 months of enrollment
  • Showed tissue characteristics that were clinically incompatible with mammaplasty, such as tissue damage resulting from radiation, inadequate tissue, compromised vascularity or ulceration
  • Had, or was under treatment for, any condition that may have constituted an unwarranted surgical risk (e.g., unstable cardiac or pulmonary problems)
  • History of prior implantation of any surgical scaffold (e.g., synthetic mesh, acellular dermal matrix, or biologic mesh) in the breast
  • Implantation of any non-SERI® surgical scaffold (e.g., synthetic mesh, acellular dermal matrix, or biologic mesh) during the study period
  • Product contraindications for use of SERI® Surgical Scaffold per the supplied package insert (e.g., hypersensitivity to silk)
