The total breast reconstruction market is expected to show moderate growth in upcoming years, fueled by the continuing success of biologics, especially LifeCells Strattice, which has been showing substantial growth since its introduction to the European market. The outstanding clinical reviews and patient satisfaction garnered by biologic matrices will allow Strattice to continue to be a popular choice when it comes to breast reconstruction. Conversely, declining reimbursement will place downward pressure on the ASP of mesh used in breast reconstruction.
Breast reconstruction is the replacement of breast tissue that has been lost during mastectomy, trauma or due to congenital defects, and the creation of a new breast form. This report includes breast reconstructions that follow mastectomy. The procedure is done by placing an implant under the skin and chest muscle, or by transplanting tissue from another part of the body to the chest area, or by a combination of these techniques. The aim is to match as closely as possible the remaining natural breast, in order to achieve desired symmetry.

Of the many companies in the Europe Breast Reconstruction market, Lifecell was the leader, followed by PFM Medical and Baxter. LifeCell dominated in the biologic market with its Strattice and ARTIA reconstructive tissue matrices, which are both ADMs derived from porcine dermis. It is processed and preserved in a phosphate-buffered aqueous solution containing matrix stabilizers. PFM Medical offers the only non-resorbable synthetic mesh product specifically approved for breast reconstruction. Baxter offers VERITAS® collagen matrix, a xenograft derived from bovine pericardium. VERITAS® was first introduced into Europe for abdominal wall repair, but has found more success in the breast reconstruction indication.
