Updated: Oct 2, 2021

In GPAC United's first episode, Robyn Towt and Terri Diaz talk to Dr. Eduardo Fleury on his latest hypothesis, The breast tumor microenvironment: Could silicone breast implant elicit breast carcinoma? Dr. Fleury is a board-certified radiologist, researcher, and professor of Medicine, with a Ph.D. in Gynecology and a Post-Doctorate in Health sciences. He holds the title of EDBI, European Diploma in Breast Imaging, and is also a Medical Doctor in Portugal. For 4 years, he has studied the complications of breast implants. He described imaging findings that allow the diagnosis of gel bleeding by Magnetic Resonance, calling it SIGBIC (Silicone Induced Granuloma of Breast Implant Capsule). His group evaluated more than 2,000 patients with breast implants, where they correlated their findings with BII (Breast Implant Illness) and BIA-ALCL (Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma). We hope you enjoy it. #gpacunited#bii#breastimplantillness#breastimplantcancer#breastaugmentation#plasticsurgery#biieducation
