The expander uses Dynamic Control Technology™ to prevent unwanted dimensional changes. An integrated lateral anchor limits device distortion medially and into the axilla, as well as reins in the superior aspect of the expander to prevent expansion in the upper pole and posteriorly against the chest wall.
Many of the existing tissue expander options are structurally simple, allowing undesirable lateral, superior, and posterior distortion when implanted inside the patient.
The MENTOR® ARTOURA™ Breast Tissue Expander allows surgeons to choose the expander that best aligns to each patient’s chest width and select a breast implant based on the base width and final volume and projection achieved. This predictability results in a smooth exchange to the full line of available MENTOR® Breast Implants, including MENTOR® MemoryShape® Breast Implants.
The MENTOR® ARTOURA™ Breast Tissue Expander is available in two projections and achieves a full profile at a range of fill volumes, enabling a match with corresponding MENTOR® MemoryShape® Breast Implant and MemoryGel® Breast Implant options.
