Brief Summary:
This study is designed to allow existing investigators continued access to the AeroForm Tissue Expander to treat patients while AirXpanders completes a marketing application and during the review process by FDA.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Breast Cancer Device: AeroForm Tissue Expander Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This is a prospective, multi-center, single arm, open-label, continued access clinical study. Subjects who meet the inclusion criteria and agree to participate in the study will be enrolled and implanted with the investigational AeroForm Tissue Expander. If the subject is having a bilateral procedure, the AeroForm expander will be implanted in each side. Subjects will be followed until the first post-operative visit after explant of the tissue expander(s) and exchange for permanent implant(s).

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 54 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: AirXpanders AeroForm Tissue Expander System for Breast Reconstruction (XPAND-II)
Actual Study Start Date : November 12, 2015
Actual Primary Completion Date : May 3, 2017
Actual Study Completion Date : September 26, 2017

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: AeroForm Tissue Expander
AeroForm Tissue Expansion inflation with carbon dioxide by remote control
Device: AeroForm Tissue Expander
The AeroForm Tissue Expander is a breast tissue expander implanted following mastectomy and activated by remote control to release small doses of carbon dioxide from an internal reservoir to fill and inflate the expander.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Successful Tissue Expansion With Exchange to a Permanent Breast Implant Unless Exchange is Precluded by a Non-device Related Event. [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    The primary endpoint is analyzed per breast. Breasts in which the expander is removed and/or replaced due to a device related adverse event or a device malfunction are counted as failures.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Successful Tissue Expansion With Exchange to Permanent Implant Including All Breasts in the Per Protocol Cohort. [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Secondary analysis is repeated including all breasts in the PP cohort (including non-device related failures). The Treatment Success Rate by breast, based on the Per Protocol cohort, including all cause failures, is 95.2% (80/84). One subject (2 breasts) are not included in analysis as subject withdrew from the study prior to exchange of her expanders.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 70 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subject is female between the ages of 18-70
  • Subject requires tissue expansion as part of breast reconstruction
  • Subject is able to provide written informed consent
  • Subject is able and willing to comply with all of the study requirements
  • Subject has the physical, perceptual and cognitive capacity to understand and manage the at home dosing regimen

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subject's tissue integrity is unsuitable for tissue expansion
  • Subject has residual gross malignancy at the intended expansion site
  • Subject has current or prior infection at the intended expansion site
  • Subject has a history of failed tissue expansion or breast reconstruction
  • Subject has any co-morbid condition determined by the Investigator to place the subject at an increased risk of complications (e.g., severe collagen vascular disease, poorly managed diabetes)
  • Subject is taking any concomitant medications determined by the Investigator to place the subject at an increased risk of complications (e.g., Prednisone, Coumadin).
