Abstract

We report two patients who developed late hematomas after breast reconstruction with polyurethane-covered implants. Although the cause of these hematomas is not absolutely clear, they are believed to have been caused by the intense, highly vascular inflammatory response that polyurethane coating is known to elicit. The development of late hematoma has not been previously stressed in the literature as a late complication of polyurethane-covered breast implants.
