Revolutionary Dual-Port Design and Integral Drain Allow for Less Invasive – Non-Surgical – Draining of Serous Fluid

  • Designed to mitigate key risks associated with breast expansion and ultimately reduce reoperation rates
  • Only tissue expander with an integral drain providing direct access to the periproshetic space where fluid can accumulate
  • Allows for diagnostic fluid sampling to enable a faster treatment response

The unique feature of the AlloX2 provides surgeons easy access to the periprosthetic space without altering any of the other characteristics of a tissue expander. While one does not plan to experience a postoperative complication, a valid question in light of the availability of the AlloX2 is why one would forego utilizing a device that facilitates treatment thereof.

Managing the Risks of Post-Operative Fluid Accumulation

Exclamation Icon

Obesity (BMI >30) and use of an Acellular Dermal Matrix (ADM) have been identified as major risk factors for seroma4

  • ~40% of adult patients in the US are obese5
  • An ADM is used in over 60% of breast reconstruction cases6
Infection Icon

A seroma increases the risk of major infection in breast reconstruction patients

  • Risk of infection is 4x higher in patients who develop a seroma4
  • Risk of expander loss caused by infection is 6.7x higher in patients who develop a seroma4
Woman Icon

Clinically relevant infections with poor salvage rates occurred in nearly 1/5 of seroma patients (18.8%)4

With current standard of care, 78% of infections require explantation4

Re-Operation Costs Can Run Upwards of +$20K,7 Which May Not Be Covered By Insurance if Within 30 Days of Initial Surgery8

AlloX2 Improves Salvage Rates & Clinical Outcomes10

Retrospective review of 112 consecutive patients

  • 63 patients (53.6%) Mentor Artoura
  • 49 patients (43.7%) AlloX2
  • 173 breasts with smooth tissue expanders (2016-2017)

AlloX2 Stats:

  • 8% seroma rate
  • All successfully drained in clinic through AlloX2
  • 1 patient’s aspiration tested positive for MRSA which allowed immediate antibiotic intervention and salvage of reconstruction without explant

100% Surgeon Satisfaction Using AlloX211

In a clinical study with 40 primary reconstructive patients, the AlloX2 was deemed successful in treating seromas and should be considered a tool for noninvasive treatment of common complications of tissue expander-based breast reconstruction.
